It’s a long list today, but we can do it! Let’s go: we’re reading 1 Kings 2:1-9, 2 Samuel 23:1-7, 1 Kings 2:10-12, 1 Chronicles 29:26-30, and lots of Psalms: Psalm 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 11. What is on your heart today?
Near the end of David’s life, read again these powerful words to his son:
“I’m about to go the way of all the earth, but you—be strong; show what you’re made of! Do what God tells you. Walk in the paths he shows you: Follow the life-map absolutely, keep an eye out for the signposts, his course for life set out in the revelation to Moses; then you’ll get on well in whatever you do and wherever you go” (1 Kings 2:1-3 MSG)
That’s great advice for anyone anywhere! No matter where we are in life, following God absolutely will always leads us to peace.
“God’s business is putting things right; He loves getting the lines straight, Setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall, we can look Him straight in the eye” (Psalm 11:7 MSG)
Restoration, restoration, restoration. I love that! What a legacy David left! Because of God’s covenant with David (2 Sam 7:16), we will continue to hear about David for generations and generations.
