Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it (1 Chronicles 28:10).
David’s words to his son, Solomon, are seen as a charge with the Lord’s intent and purpose in mind. God had a house for Solomon to build.
Like any father would do, David encourages him to be strong and do it. The words are for the son’s consideration. He was to think about what the Lord wants him to do, be strong and do it.
What about us? We should always consider what the Lord wants us to be doing. What is the Lord’s will for us? Sometimes, it may be that which is difficult; therefore, be strong and do it!
