But the LORD said to David my father, “Whereas it was in your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was in your heart. Nevertheless, you shall not build the house, but your son who shall be born to you shall build the house for my name.”
1 Kings 8:18–19
It’s disappointing when we pursue a dream, completely focused on growing God’s kingdom, only to be met with a dead end. It’s especially gut wrenching when it’s a collective dream and there are many others involved. Even though your heart’s in the right place, God can have other plans not only for you, but all involved. Where we see failure God sees opportunity. Don’t be discouraged, seek the amazing alternative God has hand picked for you.
