Today’s Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 7:1-17, 1 Chronicles 17:1-15, 2 Samuel 7:18-29, 1 Chronicles 17:16-27, 2 Samuel 8:1-14, 1 Chronicles 18:1-13, Psalm 60
Heavenly Father, it’s no wonder you loved David’s heart (Acts 13:22). Your Word tells us that the feelings in our heart flow out of our mouth (Luke 6:45). David was so good at putting his feelings into words.
Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and prayed,
“Who am I, O Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And now, Sovereign Lord, in addition to everything else, you speak of giving your servant a lasting dynasty! Do you deal with everyone this way, O Sovereign Lord?
“What more can I say to you? You know what your servant is really like, Sovereign Lord. — 2 Samuel 7:18-20
Lord, we have so many versions of ourselves we even sometimes get confused. We have the version strangers see, the version coworkers see, the version our church family sees, the version our family sees, and the version nobody sees but You.
Lord, only You know what I’m really like.
Jesus, help us to realize You know it all–our thoughts, our attitudes, our ego issues, our selfishness, our hidden anger, resentment and bitterness—You know how much we think and care about You.
AND, YOU STILL LOVE, ACCEPT AND FORGIVE US!
That’s just amazing!
Lord, help me to spend time being real with You today. Change me and make me into the person You want me to be!
In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
