Please read 2 Kings 1, 2 Kings 3, 1 Kings 22:41-49, 2 Chronicles 20:31-37, 1 Kings 22:50, 2 Chronicles 21:1-4, 2 Kings 8:16-22, and 2 Chronicles 21:5-7. What stands out to you today?
Every time David’s name comes up, I’m amazed again at the strength of the covenant God made with him. God never forgets. Consider putting a mark or highlight next to the places where God mentions the covenant – it’s powerful, and you’ll see David’s covenant last well into the new testament!
“But despite that, because of his servant David, God was not ready to destroy Judah. He had, after all, promised to keep a lamp burning through David’s descendants” (2 Kings 8:19 MSG)
Even kings who seemed to do well, left out important parts – like not getting rid of the sex shrines and idols. It seems a reflection on us (as leaders) if we allow evil to prosper and grow on our watch.
