2 Samuel 7:28
“And now, O Lord God, You are God, and Your words are true, and You have promised this goodness to Your servant.“
When will we be thankful?
We will be thankful when:
* We are secured personally with a blessed future
* We achieve something great in our lives
* Our loved ones are blessed and secure too
* Our enemies are either at peace with us or subject to us.
* We know our generations to come will be blessed and secured
* Our legacy continues.
In 2 Samuel 7, we see David had all these reasons in his heart when he spoke 2 Samuel 7:28 as thanks for all God has done in him and through him. When the prophet Nathan gave God’s message to David, he went and sat in God’s presence and started thanking Him for His goodness. Prophet Nathan’s words reminded David that nothing in his life was an accident, it was perfectly planned and ordained by His creator whom he dearly loved. He realized he was never alone; Abandoned by people but embraced by God, attacked by people but covered and surrounded by God, Glorified by people but chastised by God. His house was watched over by God even after him.
Like David we too can reflect upon our lives, we can surely say “He is God, His words are true and His love, mercy, and goodness endure forever”. Our God has never left us alone on the mountain or valley.
Therefore, we should thank him always irrespective of the situations we face. Thank Him for His salvation, thank Him for His providence, thank Him for all victories, thank Him for His amazing grace, thank Him because our present and future He is holding and will never leave or forsake us, thank Him because our future generations are blessed and kept by Him. Thank Him always.
Blessed Day ahead
