When King David, the “man after God’s own heart”, purposed in his heart to build a house for God, God’s response was “I will build you a house”. God proceeds to say that David’s son will build God’s house and God would establish him rock solid and His reign forever.
While David reduced the meaning of God’s house and his contribution to the effort to a material and literal level, God carried it several level’s beyond. The concept of “giving” to God and “getting” from God is often mistakenly perceived at a material and transient level.
God’s house goes far beyond boundaries as he has said “heaven is my throne, earth is my footstool”. God’s promise to David also went far beyond the material and current. His message to His “servant David” was that he would establish his legacy. Serving God, in whatever form He leads us to do it, results in rewards that may include but go far beyond the current material and physical dimensions.
Sow seeds that reap long term results.
“God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all we could ever ask or imagine”. Eph3:20
