Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:25-29
2 Samuel 7:25-29 says, “Now, O Lord God, the word which You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, establish it forever and do as You have said. So let Your name be magnified forever, saying, ‘The Lord of hosts is the God over Israel.’ And let the house of Your servant David be established before You. For You, O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, have revealed this to Your servant, saying, ‘I will build you a house.’ Therefore Your servant has found it in his heart to pray this prayer to You. And now, O Lord God, You are God, and Your words are true, and You have promised this goodness to Your servant. Now therefore, let it please You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue before You forever; for You, O Lord God, have spoken it, and with Your blessing let the house of Your servant be blessed forever.” David had an awesome position to pray and declare this to the Lord. David was telling the Lord that he was receiving this great goodness that God was offering him. He received it and realized and declared that he was receiving it in order to establish God’s Kingdom, to establish a harvest, to populate the New Jerusalem. King David agreed with God that he could do everything God had said he could do and that he would do it for God’s Kingdom building purposes. For you and I it is for the populating the eternal kingdom. We need to see this the way David did because we now have his covenant! God has made us great if we will start to act according to the leadership of the Spirit! God’s fullness is guaranteed through the covenant of Sure Mercy. Will we accept it?
