Now Solomon was king, and the temple was built. Solomon stands before the people and prays to God so that the people will also hear. He reminds God of the promise He had made to King David, Solomon’s father. In this prayer that Solomon prays is one of the most important words that are in the promises of God: ‘If’. If you do, God will do. We are always ready to hear the promises, but a little more slow sometimes to hear the ‘ifs’.
God is always God, and He will lead and guide if we will but listen and obey.
The LORD can control a king’s mind as he controls a river; he can direct it as he pleases. (Proverbs 21:1 NCV)
Father, I am not natural royalty, but I am Your child. I choose to believe Your promises to me, and to remember the ‘ifs’. You truly are my God, and are so very faithful and good! AMEN
Father, thank You that You remember Your agreements forever. Everything You do is good and fair. You can be trusted. Psalm 111
16 “Now, LORD, God of Israel, keep the promise you made to your servant David, my father. You said, ‘If your sons are careful to obey my teachings as you have obeyed, there will always be someone from your family ruling Israel.’ 17 Now, LORD, God of Israel, please continue to keep that promise you made to your servant. (2 Chronicles 6:16-17 NCV)
