Total Submission Is The Key To Our Dream Comes True


2 Samuel 7: 18-29

The Story

When God said "No" to David's dream, he continued to be utterly devoted to Him.

David continued to humble himself before the Lord God. He praised God for His blessings, grace, and wonderful love for His children. And he acknowledged that he was unworthy of His goodness to him.

David accepted God's plan for his life. He continued to praise the Lord God because he trusted Him for his life.

David acknowledged God's ability to bring His promises to pass. He rested upon the Lord and was satisfied.

Lessons

When God said "No" to our dreams, we must still be totally submitted to Him.

We must humble ourselves before His presence. We must remember we are who we are and we have what we have because of God's pure and perfect grace. We must remember He is the Potter and we are the clay.

We must trust God to do that which is best for our lives. We may not reach our dreams. But our goal in life is to see God carries out His perfect will in our lives.

We rested in God for we know that there is no greater honor than being used by the Lord God to bring glory to His Name.

Remember...

David was not allowed to build the Lord's Temple. But He was allowed to make preparations for the fulfillment of his dream. David ultimately could still see his dream came true.

When we accept God's plan for our lives, we will see our dreams come true nonetheless.

Total submission to the Lord God is the key to our dream comes true.

  1. And I say Amen to your post.

    We must always remember that God wanted all of us to be saved and to know His wisdom.

    A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

    Have a nice day!:=)
