The passage that stood out to me today was 1 Chronicles 29:10-13 which is titled David’s Prayer of Praise and says, “10 Then David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly: “O Lord, the God of our ancestor Israel,[a] may you be praised forever and ever! 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. 12 Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength. 13 “O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!”
Today’s scripture is 1 Chronicles 28:2-3 which says, “David rose to his feet and said: “My brothers and my people! It was my desire to build a Temple where the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant, God’s footstool, could rest permanently. I made the necessary preparations for building it, 3 but God said to me, ‘You must not build a Temple to honor my name, for you are a warrior and have shed much blood.’ ”
Today’s scripture is 1 Chronicles 23:1 which says, “When David was an old man, he appointed his son Solomon to be king over Israel.”
