READING:  2 Samuel 7; 1 Chronicles 17

TEXTS AND APPLICATION:  These chapters deal with David’s desire to build God a temple. Within chapter 7 are these reminders of the grace of God: God reminds David of what He has done, and David can respond only in humility. 

7:8 ‘This is what the Lord of Hosts says: I took you from the pasture and from following the sheep to be ruler over My people Israel. I have been with you wherever you have gone . . . 

7:18 Then King David went in, sat in the Lord’s presence, and said, Who am I, Lord God, and what is my house that You have brought me this far

PRAYER: I just want to praise the Lord today for His grace to use me. The older I get, the more I realize just how unworthy I am — and I want to be maximally used for His glory.
