Honoring God

To read the Bible in a year, read First Chronicles 17-19.
Watch the heart of David at work, “Now it came to pass, when David was dwelling in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, ‘See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD is under tent curtains'” (1Chronicles 17:1). I am not surprised to read of Nathan’s response, “Then Nathan said to David, ‘Do all that is in your heart, for God is with you'” (v. 2). Yet, the Lord had other plans for His own house and for the house of David. His intentions were good, but our intentions have to be framed within the will of God. When God revealed to David the other plans, he was pleased and blessed God.
Do you have plans that have been thwarted by God? If so, rejoice, for He knows what He is doing.
