Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:1-17
Since Jesus gave us the same covenant that the Father gave to King David, the only way we can understand fully what that means is to go back and study the passage where it was given to King David and look at it in its context so we can discover the full measure of what is there and what is available to us. 2 Samuel 7 is where that happens. Verses 8,9 says, “Now therefore, thus shall you say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: “I took you from the sheepfold, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel. And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and have made you a great name, like the name of the great men who are on the earth.” God cut off all David’s enemies. Every single promise of it belongs to us. It has been bought and paid for by the blood of Christ. When we understand that, it changes how we think. Or, it should change how we think. It will change how we think, if we progressively embrace this passage until we consistently pray it. It will change us if we say yes to it!
