Listen to these words that King David speaks in 1 Chronicles 29:14-16 :
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope. Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.”
If you read in the previous verse you see that David himself had given 110 tons of gold and 260 tons of silver for the building of the temple of the Lord. Even with all that he gave he says, “Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand”. David had it figured out. He was completely sold out for God, there was no left or right, just God and his plan. That is awesome!
Lord we are nothing compared to your glory. I take all these earthly things and give them back to you to be used you for your glory. Lord help me to not let all these earthly things become a stumbling block to getting back to you. Lord may I use these things that you have provided to accomplish your will and your plans. Amen
