1 Chronicles 17:17 (AMP) 17 And yet this was a small thing in Your eyes, O God; for You have spoken of Your servant’s house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O Lord God!
David had been promised that his sons would reign…that his offspring would reign over God’s kingdom forever. While I was reading this verse, I could feel the awe that David felt at all the Lord had done for him and was promising to do in the future. David had been made the king of Israel. He was a mighty man of valor, strong and courageous. He had walked with God but had also stumbled and fallen in his life yet he was still humble enough to know where his help came from.
God has promised all His children a variety of things. He wants us to know that He is ever faithful to us and that we can stand assured that He will not break His promises. But we must stay humble before Him. We must always be in awe of Him as our Creator and God. We should never stop seeking His will for our lives. For He is the Word…He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Only in Him can we find true joy and happiness. Only in Him can we be assured of an eternal life in His presence.
My prayer is that I am always humble before the Lord…that I never stop seeking His face and will for my life…that my walk with Him is a witness to those around me of His great faithfulness. How about you?
