If The Lord Has Chosen You To Be Great, It Must Surely Come To Past

         1st Chronicles 28 from verse 1-11

(1) Now David assembled at Jerusalem all the leaders of Israel: the officers of the tribes and the captains of the divisions who served the King,the captains over thousands and captains over hundreds, and the stewards over all the substance and possessions of the King and of his sons, with the officials, the valiant men, and all the mighty men of valor.
(2) Then King David rose to his feet and said, "Hear me, my brethren and my people: I had it in my heart to build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and for the footstool of our God, and had made preparations to build it.
(3) But God said to me, 'You shall not build a house for My name, because you have been a man of war and you have shed blood.'
(4) However the Lord God of Israel chose me above all the house of my father to be the King over Israel forever, for He has chosen Judah to be the ruler. And of the house of Judah, the house of my father, and among the sons of my father, He was pleased with me to make me King over all Israel.
(5) "And of all my sons (for the Lord has given me many sons) He has chosen my son Solomon to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.
(6) "Now He said to me, 'it is your son Solomon who shall build My house and My courts; for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his Father.
(7) 'Moreover I will establish his kingdom forever, if he is steadfast to observe My commandments and My judgements, as it is this day.'
(8) "Now therefore, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the Lord, and in the hearing of our God, be careful to seek out all the commandments of the Lord your God, that you may possess this good land, and leave it as an inheritance for your children after you forever.
(9) "As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.
(10) "Consider now, for the Lord has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong, and do it ."
(11) Then David gave his son Solomon the plans for the vestibule, its houses, its treasuries, its upper chambers, its inner chambers, and the place of the mercy seat;

This passage is trying to let us know that who so ever God has chosen to become King or become great in life must surely be one, no matter the demonic forces, impossibilities and poverty rate. God will bring someone down in order to raise you up. That person that has forgotten you will remember you. The person that sees you as an enemy will see you as a friend. What ever good thing you lay your hands on you will prosper no matter how small it is.
  David had it in his heart to build a house of rest for the ark of covenant of the Lord, and for the footstool of God, but he was not the chosen one for his arms were already filled with blood shed, but Solomon was chosen by God to build His house, not that David was not a great man, but just that he was not destined to do such if not, he would have done it.
  God knows that before Abraham,Isaac,Jacob,Joseph,Moses,Joshua,David,Judah,Solomon were born, they shall become leaders, so if you are been chosen and have been made great by Him, remember to observe the commandments of God because if you fail to do such, He will cast you off forever.
Praise God.
