March 21, 2024

David and Israel were in a time of peace, and David rested comfortably in his home. It came to him that he dwelled in a house of cedar, and the Ark was still in a tent, so he thought he would build a temple. He ran the thought past Nathan the prophet, and he agreed; however, it was not God's intention for David to build it because he was a man of war, but he was the planner, and his son Solomon became the builder, as found in other scripture. David went into the Tabernacle and prayed before the Ark, a very humble prayer that made me internalize the words. David was a great man of God and spoke eloquent prayers, uplifting the name of God and giving him all due respect. I want the ability to talk to God in such a manner, but I'm not there. His words were remarkably poetic and holy. If you want to be humbled, read 2 Samuel 7; it was thought-provoking and a reminder that I have a long way to go before I am even a tiny portion of what David was. He is an excellent example to emulate in our worship of Jesus. For now, I will continue to pray in my juvenile way, supplement my words with the words of David through the Psalms, and glorify God as much as I possibly can until I'm there. 

Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 2 Samuel 7:22
