And David said, Solomon my son is young ...and the house that is to be builded for the Lord must be exceeding magnifical, of fame and of glory...I will therefore now make preparation for it. So David prepared abundantly...I have prepared for the house of the Lord 100,000 talents of gold...1 Chronicles 22v.5, v.14
David was told "NO" by God, but David "YESSED" God back! Do God's answers of "NO" to your heart's desire make you "NOOOOOOO" God back by pouting, getting discouraged or waning in zeal while you mope? In our reading today God told David "No, you cannot build a house for Me." David's response: I will prepare abundantly for the person You have chosen instead of me to do what I dreamed of doing. He didn't get mad when his own prophet told him, " Thus saith the Lord, NO WAY, Jose`." The Hebrew word for "abundantly" in verse 5 where David speaks with such spiritual maturity means great, excellent, long, many, much, increased. It is from a root word that signifies to multiply by the myriad. David's abundant preparation was sowing for abundant increase. God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed. 2 Cor 9v.8
FATHER: I abundantly prepare to give You the desires of Your Heart, Lord!
New and daring prayers from you this weekend,
