The greatest battles in our spiritual life may not come in the form of great deeds of heroism. David, the giant killer, who was unbeatable when the fighting was fierce, proved as vulnerable as anyone else when he thought he was perfectly safe.
The Old Testament has a few markers or mountain peeks that help us in understanding the entire message, big story or metanarrative of the Bible. One of them is 2 Samuel 7. This chapter points us back to Abraham, forward to Jesus, and declares that David’s throne and dynasty will be eternal.
