The LORD has chosen Zion, He has desired it for His dwelling. Psalm 132:13

Be Strong and Courageous

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you – 1 Chronicles 28:20

In this verse, King David is encouraging his son Solomon to go ahead and build the temple of the Lord as per the plan God showed to him. Of all the sons God has given to David, God elected Solomon as the successor of David.

David was very passionate about God and determined to build a temple for the Lord but God didn't allow him because he shed much blood as a King. However, he acted and collected  the materials so that his son can build a magnificent temple for the Lord of hosts. David as father, he is affirming his son to take courage in the Lord and carry out the assignment God has given to him.

Like David every believer should be passionate about serving the Lord and encourage our sons/daughters to follow and serve God according to their calling.  David is visionary and he planned his successor when he was alive. May God give wisdom like David so that we may empower the next generation to succeed spiritually as well as secularly. 

Prayer: Father God, gives us wisdom and courage so that we may lead and guide the next generation in the proper direction so that they will be able to accomplish your purposes in their lives. In Jesus name I pray – Amen !!!
