Sit down and…pray – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Scripture:  2 Samuel 7:1-13, 18-22

 

In 2 Samuel 7, King David finally settles down. He has a new house, there are no enemies trying to break down his door, and he begins to set his sights on a new project – building a house for God. But, God interrupts David’s plans with a reminder that there is more going on than what David can accomplish with his two human hands. What happens when we get so caught up in our “God-plans” that we forget about God? What brings us back to the center and keeps us focused on the bigger picture?
