Tuesday of the Sixth Week in Kingdomtide
2 Samuel 7—8
David does what yesterday’s reading from Isaiah implored. David’s plan to build a house for God is reversed: God is going to build him a house! Feel the burst of promise in the coming Messiah 7:8. Sit with David as he prays a glorious prayer of thanksgiving from verse 18. He reviews what God has done in his life. You do the same. Make this prayer your very own. Reflect upon the movement of your life and see in it the hand of the Lord redeeming and remaking what your mistakes and sins have damaged.
All the successes of chapter 8 come because David sits before the Lord in chapter 7. Is there a new chapter in your life that is about to begin, but which needs you to sit in prayer where you are now?
Tuesdays are dedicated to Old Testament history and “The Writings.”
During the season of Kingdomtide this year we read a few chapters of Proverbs followed by 2 Samuel
