2 Samuel 7-8 B

“So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people.” 8:15

This is a sweet spot in history for the people of Israel. They are in good standing with the Lord, they have a godly king and are experiencing immense military success. As an American, I often feel entitled to those circumstances. But as we’ll continue reading, we’ll see nations rise and nations fall. Good kings will come and go. And God is still good.

I’m thankful that Jesus is on the ultimate throne and reigns over us perfectly! In the meanwhile, let’s pray for all the nations. For earthly kings. For the military.

“How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you.” 7:22
