A Good Foundation

Solomon now had all the physical materials, blueprints, and the location for the building of God’s House, the Temple in Jerusalem. He still needed to dig to put in a good foundation to build on, but we will see the spiritual foundation from God was even more important and longer lasting.

1 Kings 6:11-13
The word of the LORD came to Solomon: 12 “As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, observe my laws and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. 13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel.”

God reminds Solomon of three things:
1. Follow His decrees
2. Observe His Laws
3. Keep all His commands

If he did then God promises that He will:
1. Fulfill His promises
2. Dwell among them
3. Not abandon them

We can build with assurance on God’s promises. We need to be faithful.

Have a good Godly day.
