But who is able to build a house for Him, for the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain Him? So who am I, that I should build a house for Him, except to burn incense before Him? 2 Chronicles 2:6 (NASB)
I came across this verse in my daily reading this week. Solomon is preparing to build the temple to God and he asks himself this question. My own question when reading this verse was, “Who is worthy?” None of us are worthy to anything for God, yet He calls us to be obedient. He is more interested in our faithfulness to Him than our abilities or worthiness. Obeying our Father only strengthens our faith and reliance upon Him.
Are you being obedient to God? Has He placed a burden in your heart? Too many times we feel a burden and share it with someone else, expecting them to do the work, when god has placed that burden on our hearts because He wants us to do the work!
If God is calling you to do a work unto Him, He will equip you to do the work, no matter how impossible the task or how ill-equipped you may think you are. All He is asking is for our obedience. I pray that all of us will obey when our Heavenly Father calls.
