Today in my reading Solomon is building his house and buildings related and God’s house and then furnishing it all. It took him 13 years to build his house. This was an amazing place. I love reading this stuff. He brought in Hiram:
And he was full of wisdom, understanding, and skill for making any work in bronze. I Kings 7:15
I love all the details about windows and lattices of checker work and on and on. Pots and pillars. Very artistic. Very specific.
A few random thoughts today:
The skill God gives us is from Him and should be used for Him!
Artistry is from God.
God is interested in the details. (Just look at creation.)
Solomon finished the work even though it took years!
Jesus finished His work.
We should finish the work He gives us to do.
If God is so interested in the details in Solomon’s temple on earth… think about the glories of heaven!
Oh boy, Can’t wait!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
