Old Testament – The theme of David being a “war” king stands out today in our First Chronicles readings. In fact, we’ll get a couple more chapters of David’s wars coming up in tomorrow’s readings. The wars are what kept David from building the Temple of the Lord. This duty will be passed on to his son Solomon, a “peace” king if you will. There are some great readings today in First Chronicles 17 about the Lord’s covenant promise to David via the prophet Nathan!
There is an interesting thing to note in this message to David via Nathan from the Lord in verses 12 through 14. In context these verses are about Solomon. However, interestingly, the New Testament basically applies these verses to Jesus in Luke 1:32-22: “He is the one who will build a house–a temple–for me. And I will establish his throne forever. I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will not take my unfailing love from him as I took it from Saul, who ruled before you. I will establish him over my dynasty and my kingdom for all time, and his throne will be secure forever.'” Think these are Messianic verses that can be applied to Jesus?
Today in 1 Chronicles chapter 17 verse 30 we read this prayer of King David – “There is no one like you, O LORD, and there is no God but you.”
New Testament – Again… wow.. Paul’s writings in Romans are so convicting and true. So many verses in today’s readings bring out so much. One verse that stood out to me was 16 – “The day will surely come when God, by Jesus Christ, will judge everyone’s secret life. This is my message.” This is powerful to consider.
Psalms – I love Psalm 10 verses 17 & 18 today: “LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will listen to their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so people can no longer terrify them.” The Psalmist here tells us that God knows the hopes of the helpless.
Proverbs – We have a great Proverb in chapter 19 verse 8 today – “To acquire wisdom is to love oneself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.”
Please join us in memorizing and meditating on a verse of Scripture today: “Those who get wisdom love their own lives; those who cherish understanding will soon prosper.” Proverbs 19:8 TNIV
