Face your fear

Now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor evil occurance. 1 Kings 5:4

This comes when Solomon was king and the wars that had been waged against his father David were over. David had not been able to build a temple to the Lord. But now God had put an end to the wars and Solomon was able to build the temple to the Lord without any problems just as the Lord had told David. God had given Solomon wisdon and undestanding which he used to speak proverbs and songs and had fortold that he would build a temple to the Lord. I imagine that he would have been able to build the temple even if the wars had continued when he became king, but wasn’t it awesome that God provided a way for him to do it in peace without problems from anyone. When we are doing the things God wants us to and we put our trust in him, he will give us a peace to be able to do them without fear.
