Discussion for 1 Chronicles 29

  • Anne
    David set his affection on the house of the Lord and although he was forbidden to build the temple he mightily prepared for it by giving of his own personal wealth and encouraged others to serve who also gave willingly in building it.
  • BSP
    Verses 11,12: Jehovah God is the wealthiest Person in the entire universe. Everything on earth and in heaven belongs to him.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    What a glorious way to reign and to die! David reigned successfully over Israel for 40 years and died peacefully having installed his son Solomon as directed by God. Were it not for his blood-stained hands, God would have allowed him to build the temple. Message to us is to seek God's favour at all times, give him everlasting praise and honour and stay at the centre of His will.

    1 chronicles 29 verse 11 is most magnificent. It gives such honor to the Lord
    All the essence of his awesomeness is express in this scripture.
  • Jennifer Walker for verse 11
    I was looking for different words to use in my expressions of worship and gratitude to the LORD ABBA. One morning in devotion I opened the bible to this verse and my life has not been the same. Today, whenever I come under any kind of demonic attack I focus on the Greatness, Power, Glory, Victory and Majesty of CHRIST JESUS, being manifested within, through and around me and I am totally delivered. MOST HOLY YHWH ABBA, is present with us and manifests HIS might in us through HIS MOST HOLY SON YESHUA, CHRIST JESUS and HIS MOST HOLY SPIRIT WHO is at work within us. Amen.
  • Don 't know who this Rene Swopes is or the Proverbs 31 Ministries, but they 're wrong. If I were you, I would ceck out these postings before you post them. No such Chronicles 1 29 9A!
