That Is Not My Plan For Your Life


2 Samuel 7:1-29

The Story

David was the King of Israel.

The nation of Israel was united and at peace.

David was enjoying a time of rest.

David spent time to meditate and reflect on the blessings and the grace of God.

A dream was born in his heart : he wanted to build God a permanent dwelling place.

Ever since the time of Moses, God's presence had dwelt in the Holy of Holies of the Tabernacle.

David wanted to give God a proper, permanent place to manifest His glorious presence.

But God said "No".

Lessons

David's reaction to God's "No" is something that we should all take to heart.

Many of us have dreamed to serve God in a greater and meaningful way.

We pray about it, telling God in great details what we will do.

But our dream never works out......

It is as if God has said to us,"That is not My plan for your life."

What do we do?

Remember...

David had desired to build God a permanent dwelling place, but God said "No"!

Look at what David did!

Many of us also have desired to serve God in a better or unique way, but God also says "No"!

What do we do?
