  • 18 Then King David went in and sat before the LORD and said, "Who am I, O Lord GOD, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?
    19 And yet this was a small thing in your eyes, O Lord GOD. You have spoken also of your servant's house for a great while to come, and this is instruction for mankind, O Lord GOD!
    20 And what more can David say to you? For you know your servant, O Lord GOD!
    21 Because of your promise, and according to your own heart, you have brought about all this greatness, to make your servant know it.
    22 Therefore you are great, O LORD God. For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
    23 And who is like your people Israel, the one nation on earth whom God went to redeem to be his people, making himself a name and doing for them great and awesome things by driving out before your people, whom you redeemed for yourself from Egypt, a nation
    24 And you established for yourself your people Israel to be your people forever. And you, O LORD, became their God.
    25 And now, O LORD God, confirm forever the word that you have spoken concerning your servant and concerning his house, and do as you have spoken.
    26 And your name will be magnified forever, saying, 'The LORD of hosts is God over Israel,' and the house of your servant David will be established before you.
    27 For you, O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have made this revelation to your servant, saying, 'I will build you a house.' Therefore your servant has found courage to pray this prayer to you.
    28 And now, O Lord GOD, you are God, and your words are true, and you have promised this good thing to your servant.
    29 Now therefore may it please you to bless the house of your servant, so that it may continue forever before you. For you, O Lord GOD, have spoken, and with your blessing shall the house of your servant be blessed forever."

Thinking & Understanding
After hearing God’s astounding promise for himself and his household, through the prophet Nathan, David thanked and praised God for giving him blessings far greater than he deserved. This praise then became a prayer. In his prayer to God, who had called him ‘my servant’, David referred to himself as a ‘servant’ as much as 11 times, and to the ‘Lord’ as much as 45 times. His prayer was a personal response to God, who had personally given him a revelation. This is the proper attitude of a servant and it is what God, who gives us the word every day, desires (vv. 18-29).

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 22-24 David was able to withdraw his plan to build the temple without hesitation because he had reflected on who God was by entering into God’s presence. He remembered that God was the only true God, and that God had become their God by saving the people of Israel from Egypt and from other worldly powers. He saw God’s world, which was much greater than his; he saw that God loved the people of Israel with more passion than he did; and he saw the supreme ruler who governs all work with a clearer and wiser plan than his own. We say we work for God, but are we not rather struggling with joyless hearts? Place getting to know God before working for
him.

Prayer
Let your kingdom be established well in the places where you have sent us, through the obedience of your servants.
