“Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?” II Samuel 7: 18 Whenever I read this verse spoken by David in prayer to God, it makes me think of the wonderful song: “Who Am I?” So, I thought I’d share it with you.
—— “When I think of how He came so far from glory Came to dwell among the lowly such as I To suffer shame and such disgrace On Mount Calvary take my place Then I ask myself this question Who am I?
“Who am I that The King would bleed and die for Who am I that He would pray not my will, Thy Lord The answer I may never know Why He ever loved me so But to that old rugged cross He'd go For who am I?
“When I'm reminded of His words I'll leave Him never If you'll be true I'll give to you life forever Oh I wonder what I could have done To deserve God's only Son To fight my battles until they're won For who am I?
“Who am I that The King would bleed and die for Who am I that He would pray not my will, Thy Lord The answer I may never know Why He ever loved me so But to that old rugged cross He'd go For who am I? But to an old rugged cross He'd go for, who am I?” ——
David prays a wonderful prayer of thanksgiving and adoration in II Samuel 7:18-29. If you’re looking for something to read that will both bless you and encourage you, this is a great passage to turn to.
Those of us who have been saved by the shed blood of Yeshua have much to be thankful for. David took the time to reflect on God’s goodness to him. It’s wise and beneficial to look back on God’s blessings to us — through the good and the not-so-good times in our lives.
Remember Yeshua’s promise to us after His resurrection: “and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” What more could we ask?
