In 2 Samuel chapter 7, David is sitting in his new house, thinking about how God has blessed Him. What follows becomes one of the most significant promises in the Bible’s storyline…what was it, and what does the chapter tell us about David’s heart?
When we try to hide our sins what do we hope to accomplish? Do we hope to deceive everyone around us? Ourselves? God? We are not pulling the wool over God’s eyes, so let’s stop trying to. King David gives us a great example of how we can react to sin. Let’s not make some of the same mistakes he did.
As we get ready for our upcoming “Praying for Memphis Weekend” (Nov. 11-13), we are exploring some Bible prayers. This morning, in 2 Samuel 7, King David has an idea for honoring God.
