After yesterday’s explosion of divine energy to rebuild the Temple, we find ourselves in 2 Chronicles returning to the original inspiration of the Temple God gave to Solomon. The Chronicler at times repeats the history of the two books of Kings, at other times recasts and remolds it according to his purpose. He offers Solomon and the first Temple as models to imitate. The emphasis is upon worship.

Solomon’s prayer will inspire yours. Come to that central point of your “here and now,” drawing strength for the present and the future in the “there and then” of three millennia ago when God moved through the heart of Solomon. Dwell in faith upon this awesome fact: God prefers your own quieted, surrendered soul to all the wonders of the Temple.
