Promise from 1 Kings 8:20

"The Lord has kept the promise he made: I have succeeded David my father and now I sit on the throne of Israel, just as the Lord promised, and I have built the temple for the Name of the Lord, the God of Israel."


What an undertaking building that temple was!!! Today on earth, building a temple is just as difficult an undertaking because we are the temple. The struggle to maintan, uplift, and nurture self - let alone a family - to follow the Lord's teaching is what every modern day Solomon strives for. Lord, help us remember God's promise of redemption. Help us to build our temples on the rock.
