Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:26-29
David marveled and said, “Do as you have said…” and then he began to praise. In verses 26-29, he 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 finished in praise, declaring that what God had covenanted would surely be. Can we do that? Can we lift our hands in praise and declare, ‘God, what You have covenanted and declared will surely be. What You have declared I will experience and walk in. What You have declared I lay hold of!’ That is the way we declare and decree God’s covenant and trust Him to bring it to pass. There is no doubt this is a season that we need to walk in His covenant and trust in His provision and praise Him with all of our hearts. Our act of praise is an anointed exclamation point on every Spirit-led Word declaration.
