You don’t have revival by seeking revival, but by seeking God! God says if you will pray and seek my face, I will hear and forgive and heal. If God is going to come and be with His people, He is not going to come until his people seek him.
Today’s reading shows how praise made way for the manifest presence of God which simply overtook the temple. When was the last time you saw the glory of God in such an awesome way?
God said no to David when he wanted to build a temple, but in today’s text we read that God gave Solomon a blank check – He could have asked for anything, but he asked for Wisdom and God said YES.
Using David as our primary example, let me suggest four right ways in which to respond when God says “No.”
“Where is YOUR “Parbar?” really means where is your ministry in God’s work? Where do you fit? I want us to look at; at least four points the writer of Chronicles is trying to tell us.
If God has given you a gifting – then really use it, practice and commit yourself to fulfill your calling in the best way. Whatever your calling, commit yourself to it.
