The Humble Heart

Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me to this? [2 Samuel 7:18 ISV]

This was David's response when the prophet Nathan prophesied to him saying: "Your dynasty and your kingdom will remain forever in my presence—your throne will be secure forever." Such a word from God will, depending on the state of your heart, either break you or inflate your ego.

In my darkest and most discouraging times the Lord has spoken words to my heart that has broken and humbled me. He has spoken words to me, about me, that have brought me to tears. Such is the word that Nathan spoke to David. When a heart is humble it is surprised by such a word.

Thank you Dear Father for giving me a new and humble heart. To you belongs the glory.
