King David realized how good God had been to him, and wanted to build Him a place to dwell.
2 Chronicles 7:1
King David was living in his palace, and the Lord had given him peace from all his enemies around him. Then David said to Nathan the prophet, “Look, I am living in a palace made of cedar wood, but the Ark of God is in a tent!”
Because David was a man of war, God refused David’s request, giving Solomon the privilege. But the Lord did make a promise to David that his family would always continue, an everlasting throne. That promise was fulfilled in Jesus, Son of David.
PRAY ISRAEL WILL RECOGNIZE JESUS, THE SON OF DAVID.
