God’s Perspective on David’s Proposal

Morning Service
Jan 24, 2021

With his kingdom established and enjoying a time of peace, David proposed to build a better dwelling place for the ark of God. Initially, Nathan the prophet affirmed the king’s plan—yet his well-meaning support failed to consider the Lord’s perspective. God is sovereign; He cannot be contained and doesn’t need man’s agendas. As Alistair Begg points out, this key passage unlocks Scripture’s whole story line. By God’s hand and for His glory, David’s dynasty, and ultimately Christ’s eternal kingdom, would be established.
