Reflecting on God’s Word …

1 Kings 8:22-24 NLT

Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in front of the entire community of Israel. He lifted his hands toward heaven, and he prayed,

“O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven above or on the earth below. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion. You have kept your promise to your servant David, my father. You made that promise with your own mouth, and with your own hands you have fulfilled it today . . .

Reflection

At this point in his life, Solomon is dedicating the Temple to the Lord. There had been a lot of time , energy and money invested in the planning and construction of such an incredible edifice. It was a historic moment and event in the life of Isrrael. Solomon prays! He dedicates all the work and the building to the Lord.

At important moments in our lives, do we take moments to dedicate our time, efforts, and results to the Lord? Let make an effort to do just that!
