“And the king commanded them to quarry large stones, costly stones, and hewn stones, to lay the foundation of the temple. So Solomon’s builders, Hiram’s builders, and the Gebalites quarried them; and they prepared timber and stones to build the temple.”
1 Kings 5:17-18
The construction of the Solomon temple happened almost three thousand years ago, the builders had no power tools, cranes or bulldozers. Everything was done by hand with blood and sweat! In other words they had burdens feeling overwhelmed with no end in sight! That’s maybe how you feel today!
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Often times we look at the task before us, the situation going on in our lives or the up hill battle that we are in! What the LORD desires us to do, is look to Him, rest in Him and most of all learn from Him! Realize, He has everything all worked out already!
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures for evermore.”
Remember, it took Solomon seven years to build the temple, forty years for the children of Israel to walk through the wilderness and seventy years captivity in Babylon in all cases the LORD was right there with them, the same goes for us! No matter what burden you may be going through. Know this the LORD is right there with you, no matter how long it takes! Have a blessed day knowing the LORD is working it all out!
