Nov:23 God made a covenant with David

Posted on: November 20th, 2014 by Amy Vetter

David had become the king of Israel. When David assumed the throne of Israel, God had given the nation peace from its enemies. David was concerned however that the ark of the covenant still dwelt in a tent and did not have a permanent home. God shared with Nathan that David’s son would be the one to build the temple and not David himself. God promised David that someone from his family would always be king. David went to the tabernacle and praised God for the things He had done and for the things He had promised for the future. God kept His promise to David by sending His Son, Jesus, our King who will never die.

As a family, go through

The Lord’s message to David through Nathan (2 Samuel 7:4-17)

I found …

7 specific things that God reminds David about, from history

and 9 Promises that God makes to David (and his family) not all good

Then go through David’s prayer in response (2 Samuel 18-29). 

Note the details as David moves from:

-A feeling of inadequacy

-To wonder at Gods Promise

-and wonder at who God is

-and what he has done for his people

-then petition for God to to as he says

Q: What two things does David list as reasons or outcomes of God saying true to his promise?

Q: How are these promises to David fulfilled in Christ?
