Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 2:1-12 (day four)
David had put aside vast amounts of supplies to build the Temple with…gold, silver, bronze, precious stone, iron, fabrics…but Solomon needed more. Evidently, Solomon had enlarged the plans for the Temple and required more supplies. As grand as the plans were for the Temple, Solomon recognized that God could not be contained within this house. Even the heavens and the highest heavens were not large enough to hold God. God was greater than time or space.
When we stop and contemplate on the greatness of God, it is truly beyond our comprehension. God reminded Job of His greatness in Job 38-41. God has performed tasks and created perfection in ways we don’t even know to ask about. In our finite thinking, we cannot fathom the majesty and glory of God.
So can a God this big manage the petty needs in our lives? They don’t seem petty to us maybe, but in the grand scheme of things they hardly register on the scale of importance and complexity. Why does it seem to be so hard to trust God? He has promised to guide us…to provide for us…to meet our every need, yet we struggle to trust Him. Ask God for the faith to trust Him!
