Message of the Day: God’s Promises Should Make Us Humble.

Therefore you are great, O Lord God. For there is none like you, nor is there any God besides you, according to all that we have heard heard with our ears.” (2 Samuel 7:22, NKJV)

The Old Testament is the story of God’s dealings with the Hebrew nation for the purpose of one day blessing all nations.

As the story unfolds, it is explained that the way the Hebrew nation would bless all nations is through the family of David. It is further explained that the family of David would bless the world through a great King who would one day be born into the family, a King who would live forever and establish a kingdom of endless duration.

God’s establishment of David as king of Israel was amazing enough, but the permanent dynasty God now promised him is even more amazing. Deeply humbled, David don’t know what to say. He could only praise God for all he had done, both for David personally and for the people of Israel as a whole (2 Sam. 7: 18-24).

That gives us a great deal of example on how to handle the overwhelming grace and mercy of God: be humble and praise Him!
