Focus Verses For Today: 1 Chronicles 17:16-20
Today, we return to King David and the ark of God, and we see God’s faithfulness.
Ask the Lord to grant you wisdom in understanding 1 Chronicles 15-19. Read 1 Chronicles 15-19. Let’s journey!
1 Chronicles 15-19: If you remember from our focus verse last week, King David did not follow the Lord’s instructions for moving the ark of the covenant, with disastrous results. In today’s reading, we see that King David learned his lesson, and followed the Lord’s instructions on not only moving the ark but also regarding how to take care of the ark of God. David remembers all that the Lord has done and we see that God is not finished working through David. (1 Chronicles 15:1-19:19)
Our focus verses for today:
16 Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said:
“Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? 17 And as if this were not enough in your sight, my God, you have spoken about the future of the house of your servant. You, Lord God, have looked on me as though I were the most exalted of men.
18 “What more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant, 19 Lord. For the sake of your servant and according to your will, you have done this great thing and made known all these great promises.
20 “There is no one like you, Lord, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.
(1 Chronicles 17:16-20, NIV)
“Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?” This verse is as much a praise as it is a question. We may not always see or recognize how far God has brought us in life. For David, King David, the man after God’s own heart, he was raised from lowly shepherd, youngest brother, to the highest political position in the land. All by God’s hand. Your journey may not be as distant, but it is your journey! It has happened for a reason! “Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?” Where has your journey brought you?
