insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy


prayers from David

sometimes it is a whisper
sometimes it is a shout
but it always without a doubt
that i lift my voice to you my Heavenly Father

yesterday as we discussed King David and his plan to build God a temple and Nathan telling Him God said No....What?.....God said No...He doesn't want a temple built by me....because

"The Lord declares to you that the Lord himself will establish a house for you."
 2 Samuel 7:11

this idea David had is not foreign. we are all building "temples" for God expecting great blessings but we forgot how good God is and that He will build a house for me, you, and David

So David prays this prayer:

Who am I, Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And as if this were not enough in your sight, Sovereign Lord, you have also spoken about the future of the house of your servant—and this decree, Sovereign Lord, is for a mere human!
 “What more can David say to you? For you know your servant, Sovereign Lord. For the sake of your word and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made it known to your servant.
 How great you are, Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.

2 Samuel 7:18-22

So as I am mere human....I ask who am I, Father, that you have brought me this far and gave me so much....let me remember that there is no one like you and there is no God but you.  Thank You and I love you.

  1. Thanks for sharing this! I'd never really meditated on this scripture in this way before. Visiting from Jen's site today, and I'm glad I did!


Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
