Let Nothing Stop You
“King David said to his son Solomon, ‘Be confident and determined. Start the work and don't let anything stop you. The Lord God, whom I serve, will be with you. He will not abandon you, but he will stay with you until you finish the work to be done on his Temple.’“ (1 Chronicles 28:20 GNT)
Could there be some work God wants us to begin today to extend his kingdom and help others know of his love? King David knew his son Solomon was chosen by God to build the Temple in Jerusalem. But David also knew about the pitfalls of procrastination and losing focus. “Start the work and don’t let anything stop you” are also timely words for us today. It might be praying for someone God has laid on your heart; talking to a friend about Jesus; or obeying the inward call to some ministry opportunity. Satan fights hard to block our first efforts to start, but we can remind ourselves not to fear since the Lord will be with us!
Read 1 Chronicles 28:11-21.
