40 Days of Prayer – Day 33

SCS StudentDevotional Blog

“Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished.’”  1 Chronicles 28:20

In the context of this section of verses, David gave Solomon the plans for building the temple which consisted of lots of work. Solomon was afraid of failure or not doing a good job. David, however, told Solomon to not be afraid and be strong and courageous and trust in the Lord. We as Christians need to apply these words of David in our own lives. This last year has been extremely difficult with Covid, but instead of looking at the low points, we need to recognize the high points that God gave us through all of it. For instance, notice the fact that during quarantine we got to spend more time with family. It also helps us have a better appreciation for our essential workers such as doctors and nurses. When our school went remote during quarantine, it was not easy for students and especially teachers. Everything became even more stressful when we couldn’t be there in person. Although, I believe that through this whole process, we became stronger as a community and were able to grow closer to the Lord.
