In today’s reading for The Bible Recap, we covered 1 Chronicles 17, where God promises David that He would build a house for him.
The chapter starts with David asking Nathan the prophet if he should build a house for God. Without enquiring God, Nathan asked David to follow his heart and do what he wants. At night, God revealed to Nathan that He would be the one building a house for David, and not the other way around.
- God says no for a reason.
- That reason is not to deprive us, but to provide us with something better.
- Sometimes, when we ‘follow our heart’ and do things that we think God may like, it doesn’t mean it's what God wants us to do.
