Scripture Reading: 2 Chronicles 2:1
And Solomon determined to build an house for the name of the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.
Reflection: Solomon had the task of building the temple when he ascended the throne of Israel. His father had left behind the architectural design as well as the building materials for this assignment. Much as we may think that Solomon had all the necessary support to enable him accomplish this task, there was something else that he personally brought on board- his determination to build! Without this he could not have probably accomplished the task in spite of the provisions that was made available for him. Determination is a ‘ quality that makes you continue trying to do or achieve something that may be difficult ‘. It is a ‘positive emotional feeling’ that sparks off perseverance in you. It is part of the reason why you can always achieve your goals in life. Cultivate the spirit of self determination and you will surely make it to the top. Jesus no doubt demonstrated this quality when he ‘endured the cross and despised the shame’- Hebrews 12:2
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to operate with the spirit of self determination.
Confession: I possess the quality of self determination. I am more than a conqueror.
