Bible Text: 2 Samuel 7 |

Jordan Hitchcock | 2 Samuel 7 |

Forever
“Forever” is a long time. Notice in Psalm 89:1-4 the “forever” time frame.
  1 I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
     with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
     through all generations.
  2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
     that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
  3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
     I have sworn to David my servant,
  4 ‘I will establish your line forever
     and make your throne firm through all generations.’”

Compare this with 2 Samuel 7 which we are reading in church today. It makes you realize that God’s plans are for the long-term. King David is part of the unfolding of God’s forever plan but even he cannot foresee how God’s forever plan will be fulfilled by one greater than David almost a thousand years later. Praise God this has been revealed to us.
