Sitting before the Lord
And when Nathan the prophet gives him some important information, King David, in today’s first reading (2 Samuel 7:18-19,24-29), takes immediate action.
He sits down.
Nathan reported all these words
and this entire vision to David.
Then King David went in
and sat before the LORD...
As he sits there, David opens his heart before the Lord: mindful first of his unworthiness, placing himself in God’s hands, and trusting in God’s promises.
In our busy lives, may we always remember to take a little time to sit before the Lord in prayer and open our hearts to him, so that he may fill us with his grace.
