The Choices of God

After Solomon finished building the temple, he quoted God to Israel, “Since the day that I brought My people Israel out of Egypt, I have chosen no city from any tribe of Israel in which to build a house, that My name might be there; but I chose David to be over My people Israel” (1 Kings 8:16).
We make choices, but God’s choice goes above ours, for, as with His redeeming Israel out of Egypt, so He has redeemed us.
We do well to be content with His choices, as I believe Solomon sought to get Israel to accept.
