Re:Verse passage – 1 Chronicles 28:11-21 (day four)

One of the first things you recognize in our passage is the detail of the plans that David provides to his son, Solomon.  He has a plan for everything…buildings, porches, inner rooms, upper rooms, utensils, dishes, storehouses, etc.  David had put a lot of thought into the temple.  These were not his plans though…verse 19 gives us the key.  “All this,” said David, “the Lord made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all the details of this pattern.”  It was God who paid attention to all the detail.  Details are not surprising when God created the heavens and the earth.  Exquisite and intricate detail characterizes every creation of God.

Is it important to God that things are done correctly?  Does He give a general idea as to how something should be and leave the details up to man to figure out?  Does God, for instance, have a detailed ‘master plan’ developed for our church or does He allow us to come up with our best plans and ideas?  Sounds like we have some praying to do!
