Sometimes, Lord, Your “No” – “You shall not build Me a House to dwell in” (1 Chronicles 17:1-4) – means “Not now – later” – “one of your sons … shall build a House for Me” (1 Chronicles 17:11-12). What are we to say about the ‘delay’? We call it a delay. You, Lord, give us Your promise – “the Lord will build you a House” (1 Chronicles 17:10). You say to us, “Still the vision awaits its time … If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay” (Habakkuk 2:3).
