Passage: 1Chronicles 23:1~27:34  

Keyverse: 28:9

1. I had it in my heart to build a house (1-8)

David summoned all the officials of Israel to assemble in Jerusalem. He told them how much he had wanted to build a magnificent house for the ark of God. He had made plans to build it, but God told him that he was not the one to build God's house because he was a man of war. He had blood on his hands. His son Solomon (Peace) would have the privilege. So David prepared everything for Solomon his son to build the temple. He even organized the priests and Levites who would serve in the temple.

2. The Lord searches every heart (9-21)

David charged his son Solomon to serve God with pure motives and wholehearted devotion. God knows the heart. If a man seeks God, he will find him. If a man forsakes God, he will be rejected. He charged Solomon to be strong and courageous, and to be positive about doing the work of God.

Prayer: Lord, teach me to love and serve you with my whole heart. Help me to be strong and courageous to do your work.

One Word: The Lord searches every heart
