*TOPIC: ENJOYING THE COVENANT OF GOD*

*Read: 2 Samuel 7:1-21*
*MEMORISE: _I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David: ‘Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations'_ (Psalm 89:3,4).*

*EXPOSITION*
God is searching for people He will enter into covenant with. David, in today’s daily dose of the Living Water, showed character and got God’s approval. As God has nothing other than Himself to swear to Abraham for attempting to offer his son to Him without reservation, David earned God’s everlasting covenant for undertaking to build a temple for Yahweh. God had not asked him to do such thing for him and didn’t ask anyone, or tribe of Israel to build the house for Him, but David decided to do it, because of his genuine love for Him. No wonder God sealed His covenant with him.

When we have undertaken to do great things for God outside our own capabilities, so to speak, God moves to act and honour us in big ways. Truly, though, everything is by God’s grace, and grace supersedes who we are and what we do. Yet, God cherishes those lives honour Him, and anyone who dishonors Him, He dishonours
.
Nobody else takes risks like our God, and no one pleases Him like those who can risk for Him. Nobody ever thought of building a house for God before David. Even Moses was asked by God Himself to construct the tabernacle in the wilderness. Hence, Moses was not the visioner. However, in David’s case, he carried the vision and was hundred percent ready to accomplish it, if not that God wouldn’t permit him, for divine logistic reasons. Yet, this man did not allow that to discourage him. No wonder that God recognised his sincerity and initiative. Though God disallowed him, He still gave him something more than that – His covenant. Don’t just stop at doing something for God, do Him great exploit.

*PRAYER POINTS*
*1.* Lord, help me to have a genuine love for You.
*2.* Lord Jesus, work on me by Your Spirit, so that nothing would be too big for me to release to Your will.
*3.* Lord, help our Church not to break by our own characters, Your covenant with our forebears, as they walked uprightly with You.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Ezra 4:10 – 7:9; Acts 11:18 – 12:9*
