“All this he made clear to me in writing from the hand of the LORD, all the work to be done according to the plan." Then David said to Solomon, his son, "Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished. And behold the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God, and with you in all the work will be every willing man who has skill for any kind of service; also the officers and all the people will be wholly at your command."
We are directed, as was Solomon, to step out courageously and build the Kingdom of Heaven in the here in now. Everything is in place, the materials, the talents and gifts, the leading of the Holy Spirit; nothing is lacking for the work to be done." Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God is with you."
