This morning, I pondered 1 Chronicles 28 and how God gave David clear instructions to Solomon when it was time to build the temple. We read how David “gave [Solomon] the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind.“ The Holy Spirit put in David’s mind everything he needed to know to tell Solomon. We then read how David says, “All this I have in writing as a result of the Lord’s hand on me, and he enabled me to understand all the details of the plan.”
David wasn’t frantic or stressed out. David wasn’t confused or blocked. Instead, he recounts how the Spirit put things in his mind and how God allowed him to understand everything. David says it’s because “the Lord’s hand” was on him.
I pray for this. I pray that the Lord’s hand would be on us, on our work, on our plans. May God’s Spirit put God’s plans for us in our minds. May God give us all the details, and may we understand.
May the Lord’s hand be upon us.
I finally recall in Acts 11:21 this beautiful verse about the work scattered Christians were doing to tell others about Jesus. We read that “the Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.”
May the Lord’s hand be with us so many believe and turn to the Lord.
