David wanted to build a house for God (II Samuel 7.1-17.) But God had other plans. Was there a time when what God had for you was better than what you could planned for yourself?
It is nice to look back and see how God works. But when you are in the middle of it, it can be really frustrating and difficult. How do you/have you dealt with such times? How have you gotten through the times when nothing seemed to be working out?
In II Samuel 24. 20-24 David says, "I will not give to God something that costs me nothing." What has it cost you to follow Jesus? Has it been worth it?
