We just celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday, but my heart is still full of thanks to the Lord of the promise over our lives.
I really enjoyed reading
2 Samuel 7:18-29 David’s prayer of Thanksgiving. I pray this prayer blesses you like it has blessed me.
2Sa 7:18King David went in, sat before the LORD, and said, “Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my family, that you should have brought me to this point?
2Sa 7:19And you didn’t stop there, O LORD God! You have also spoken about the future of your servant’s family. Is this your usual way of dealing with men, O LORD God?
2Sa 7:20What more can David say to you? You have given your servant special recognition, O LORD God!
2Sa 7:21For the sake of your promise and according to your purpose you have done this great thing in order to reveal it to your servant.
2Sa 7:22Therefore you are great, O LORD God, for there is none like you! There is no God besides you! What we have heard is true!
2Sa 7:23Who is like your people, Israel, a unique nation on the earth? Their God went to claim a nation for himself and to make a name for himself! You did great and awesome acts for your land, before your people whom you delivered for yourself from the Egyptian empire and its gods.
2Sa 7:24You made Israel your very own people for all time. You, O LORD, became their God
o now, O LORD God, make this promise you have made about your servant and his family a permanent reality. Do as you promised,
2Sa 7:26so you may gain lasting fame, as people say, ‘The LORD of hosts is God over Israel!’ The dynasty of your servant David will be established before you,
2Sa 7:27for you, O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have told your servant, ‘I will build you a dynastic house.’ That is why your servant has had the courage to pray this prayer to you.
2Sa 7:28Now, O sovereign LORD, you are the true God! May your words prove to be true! You have made this good promise to your servant!
2Sa 7:29Now be willing to bless your servant’s dynasty so that it may stand permanently before you, for you, O sovereign LORD, have spoken. By your blessing may your servant’s dynasty be blessed on into the future!”
Enjoy today’s prayer of Thanks!
