02 Aug II Samuel 7:2

2 “…Here I am, living in a palace of cedar while the ark of God remains in a tent.” 

After all God had done for him, David didn’t think it was right for the Ark of God to be out in a tent. He spoke to God’s prophet, Nathan, and was told to “do all that is in your heart.” God had a plan to build David’s family, while David planned to build God’s Ark a house! God revealed His promise or covenant with David and his family! Read all about this in 2 Samuel chapter 7!
