David Cannot Build the Temple

1 Chronicles 22:6-13 NRSV

But the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘You have shed much blood and have waged great wars; you shall not build a house to my name, because you have shed so much blood in my sight on the earth. (1 Chronicles 22:8)

There are times when we might not lead or build; but, our faithful desire can still be acknowledged by God.
