Scripture: 1 Chronicles 21:20-25, 1 Kings 5:3,4
An angel commanded the prophet to tell David exactly what to do. He could have appropriated Ornan’s threshing floor but he did not. Based on the value of gold today, he paid $1,728,000 USD for that threshing floor. And it was cheap at ten times the price because from that place, he built an altar and he was able to stay the Sword of the Lord. David was willing to do whatever necessary to stop the devastation and destruction in his nation. And he did it by covenant. That same option is available to us and we need to be taking it, right now. Solomon built the temple on Ornan’s threshing floor. Psalm 110:1,2 became a reality to Solomon. 1 Kings 5:3,4 describes the fulfillment of having our enemies made our footstool, “You know how my father David could not build a house for the name of the LORD his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side, until the LORD put his foes under the soles of his feet. But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence.” If we want David’s results, we must pray as David prayed!
