GOD'S PROMISE TO DAVID
Welcome back to Daily Bread! Let's get
right down to business, shall we? When the Lord gave David rest from all
of his enemies, he said to Nathan, the prophet, "Look, here I am living in a beautiful
house of cedar, but the ark of the Lord is out in a tent!" And Nathan, knowing
that the Lord was with David since everything was going his way, encouraged him
to follow his heart.

That same night the Lord spoke to
Nathan with a message for David. saying, Why do you want to build me a house to
live in? I've gone from tent to tent ever since the time I brought the children
of Israel out of Egypt. Have
I ever complained that someone hasn't built me a house of cedar? I took you from
tending sheep to be ruler over my people Israel. I was with you wherever you went,
I've destroyed all your enemies and made your name famous. I will make for my
people a permanent place of their own, and their enemies won't afflict them anymore like before
and since the
time I appointed judges over Israel. I will establish your family.
Notice how God is using Nathan, to speak to David.
The Lord could have just spoke to David
himself, but He chose not to. Perhaps he wanted to assure that Nathan was a
witness. Prophecy ... It still happens today.
God may use several different ways to speak to us ... Through other people, circumstances,
angels, miracles, visions, dreams, the Bible, or through the Holy Spirit. God isn't limited in
the vast amount of ways He can communicate a message to us. There were
obviously Prophets used during the Old Testament to convey God's message to
people. Are there still prophets used TODAY?

The Lord continued his message to David through Nathan, saying "When you die,
your son will be your heir, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a temple for me, and I
will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his father, and he
shall be my son. If he sins, I will correct him, but my love and mercy will never
leave him as I took it from Saul. Your house
and your kingdom shall be established for ever before you."
Great Scott ... What a promise!!! Not only will David's son build
an earthly temple of the Lord, but the throne of David will continue on through
his posterity for ever!
David went into the
tabernacle and sat before the Lord, whose presence resides between the cherubim
of the mercy seat, and thanked the Lord with all of his heart for the
immeasurable blessing that had just been bestowed upon him. Let me encourage you
to read David's prayer word for word, for yourself, and feel the sincerity of
his joy and praise to God, not only for the blessings he had received, but for
all the wonderful things the Lord had done for Israel.
