Scripture: II Samuel 23:1-3
God promises us the key of David?? What is the key of David? The key is David’s Covenant of Sure Mercy which was purchased by Christ and guaranteed to believers. Our job is to believe and receive both the mercy, governmental and judicial components. II Samuel 23 verses 1-3. states: “Now these are the last words of David. ‘Thus says David the son of Jesse; thus says the man raised up on high, The anointed of the God of Jacob, And the sweet psalmist of Israel: The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, And His word was on my tongue. The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me; He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God.’” If we are going to embrace Christ’s rule then that rule comes from the Davidic prayers in the Psalms. The key of David is the Covenant God made with David guaranteeing the governmental reign of Messiah. The Davidic Psalms offer a rich treasure where covenant mercy brings God on the scene to deal with the enemy. The Davidic Psalms bring covenant justice on the scene. Jesus bought and paid for them. We have a right to pray them. The question is, are we willing to use it? The only thing that stands in our way is our religious tradition and it is time to push that aside. Justice is a prayer away!
