2 Samuel 7:18-22 "Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and said, “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far? And yet this was a small thing in your eyes, O Lord God; you have spoken also of your servant’s house for a great while to come. May this be instruction for the people, O Lord God! And what more can David say to you? For you know your servant, O Lord God! Because of your promise, and according to your own heart, you have wrought all this greatness, so that your servant may know it. Therefore you are great, O Lord God; for there is no one like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears."
Reflection. King David has achieved much. He was to go on to even greater things. He established a golden age that was built upon by his son, Solomon. David could have said, 'Look how brilliant I am.' He didn't.
David knew that God had favoured him. "Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far?" How do we react when things have gone favourably for us? Are we selfish in our reactions or are we like David?
Praise. Lord, there is no one like you. There is no God besides you. In Jesus's name. Amen.
