As I lay in bed late tonight reading these passages I am overwhelmed by the grace and faithfulness of my God.
He chooses a people for himself. He covenants with them, not based on what they do or don’t do. He swears by his own name to be faithful to them.
Yesterday I wrote about how complicated and flawed humans are, how David wasn’t the perfect hero we want him to be.
Today the readings were all about what God has done for David, that God desires to establish a name and a house for David. And again, it’s not because of some perfect track record that David’s achieved. No. It’s pure grace.
“You, LORD God, have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men.” 1 Chronicles 17:17
