“Arise and work!” 1 Chronicles 22:16

King David was a man of war, his son Solomon was to be a man of rest. But not the kind of rest we typically think. Solomon wasn’t called to sit on a beach, tour Italy, or indulge in french food. Rest, meant peace and quiet from all his enemies—an appointed time to build a house for the Lord.

This word from God reminds me of two important things today. The first is: God brought me into the world, not for my own busyness, but for His glory. The second is: success depends on setting my mind and heart to seek the Lord.

“Is not the Lord your God with you? And has He not given you peace on every side?” (vs 18) What joy and gladness is ours when we listen to the Spirit of our God, “Be strong and courageous. Fear not; be not dismayed.”

With great pains the King has provided everything we will need.
