“Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.” 2 Samuel 7:16 NIV
It was no coincidence that Jesus was a descendent of King David. God told Nathan, the prophet, to relay to King David an incredible promise: that the Lord would establish David’s throne forever. What an astounding promise! We are incredibly blessed to be able to be included in God’s promises to His people. God’s promises stand. Because He lives, we can hope for a better tomorrow.
As I watched political powers change yesterday, I could sense the tides turn. It all seemed surreal. The first African American woman to become Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, was sworn into office on 1/20/21, a historic moment to behold.
We, as a nation, can overcome adversity. As we emerge from a period of strife and division, there is hope, hope for unity and healing.
Just as God keeps His promises to us, we can strive to fulfill our part in peace. Amen.
