Then David said, “This will be the location for the Temple of the Lord God and the place of the altar for Israel’s burnt offerings!”
OBSERVATION: David determined the exact location for where this most important establishment to this point in Israel’s history, would be built. Before the first hole could be dug or the first stone put in place, there had to be a “this will be” decision.
APPLICATION: As we begin this 21-day journey of prayer and fasting, it is important for us to determine the what, where and when for our time with God. What time of the day are we going to set aside with consistency to spend with God? Where is the best place for you to set aside that time? What are you going to fast during that time (certain meals, certain days, certain foods)? When we make such determinations it allows plans to take shape rather than just exist in someday, sometime. With God’s help we are starting right here, right now.
PRAYER: God, today I am determining to meet with you and to be consistent in this journey with the help of your Holy Spirit starting right now.
