He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever. 1 Chronicles 17:12
1 Chronicles 17:1–15
Jeremiah 9–11; 1 Timothy 6
The Holidays are fast approaching. Thanksgiving is around the corner and yes I’m panicking because I have yet to begin Christmas shopping. Many of you are in the same predicament. Oh my, its fast approaching. What do I get this person, what do I get that person. AHHHHHH Hysteria begins.
I am not here to cause any hysteria though.
Just a gentle reminder.
No matter what we purchase for our loved ones.
Whether it is for the Holidays or even birthdays, none of it will have the same grandeur to whats to come.
God prophesied to David via Nathan that His descendants (Solomon) who he was notified would build the temple David wanted to build for God.
Even thereafter we see how he was instructed he would build David a house, a dynasty. That dynasty comes via Jesus whom as we know has prepared the way and his thrown will last forever.
Our greatest gift of all will come at the end of our journey. The gifts we give and receive may give short term satisfaction, yet with Jesus we will receive the greatest gift of all. Our salvation, at the feet of Jesus thrown, when the new Jerusalem oh how great is this gift from our salvation.
Father God, I thank You for the gift of Jesus in my life. Thank your for your love, thank you for your blessings. No amount of material things will ever surpass the greatness we have yet to receive. My lord I am over joyed with emotions, with gratitude for your generosity. Thank you for your gifts exceeds any other gifts imaginable. Lord we do not deserve anything which you are giving us and here I am thankful nonetheless. Here I am seeking forgiveness for any trespasses against you or any other which were not intended. Amen
