Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Now, O Lord God, the word which You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, establish it forever and do as You have said. – 2 Sam 7:25
David had just received the most amazing promise of his life! He offered to build God a temple; and God’s response was, “God will make you [David] a house” (v 11). In response to David’s intention to honor God, God promised to make David’s descendants a royal dynasty!
But David had a role to play in the promise being fulfilled. David had to agree with God. He partnered with God to see His promise come to pass. Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov 18:21). We can either cancel God’s promises through doubt and unbelief, or confirm them by spoken faith!
Has God told you what He is going to do? There is still action required! You have to affirm His word. You must promise to participate and value the life God wants to give you, and the process He wants to take you through.
God will do everything He has promised to do. Will you let Him?
Father, thank You for making amazing promises over my life. I say yes and amen to them, right now, in Jesus’ name. I pray I would never be a roadblock to Your promises unfolding over my life. I say yes to Your best, in Jesus’ name!
