2 Samuel 6-7
H - "And yet this was a small thing in your eyes, Lord Yahweh. You have spoken also of your servant’s house for a great while to come, and this is instruction for humanity, Lord Yahweh!" - 2 Samuel 7:19
E - David has just learned that God will establish an eternal kingdom through his seed. David's house, kingdom, and throne will be established forever. So David goes into the tabernacle, now in Jerusalem, and sits before Yahweh and prays. He understands that the information God has just revealed about his seed is important for all of humanity. This is a great prophecy of the Lord Jesus, the Son of David, the Messiah.
R - "Disciple makers must not let themselves get dragged down by believers."
P - Father, thank you for choosing David and revealing your plan to him. Thank you that Jesus is the prophesied Son of David and that he has an eternal kingdom. Thank you that you sent your Son to become the Son of David and to sit on his throne forever. May our allegiance be to the Lord Jesus. May we be true disciples of Jesus, putting his kingdom first. Help us to be disciples and disciple makers, not just believers. Help us to put all our effort into multiplying disciple makers. Give encouragement to me and to all who want to fulfil the Great Commission. Help us not to get caught up in administrivia but to prioritise the making of disciples. Amen.
