David was wondering why he had a huge palace to live in and God had just an old tent. David wanted to build God a more permanent home. If I had everything going my way I would not think twice about God. It surprises me how humble and unselfish king David was.

2 Samuel 7:3-4 David consults Nathan so that he would know that he is in God’s will. Nathan told the king that he should build a temple for the Lord, Nathan totally agreed with King David’s proposal. This proposal could also be taken as a pagan act. In that time the pagans thought that all their gods wanted was to be happy, and have the people as slaves to them. This idea could have given King David the thought of build a better temple for the Lord, to appease Him. All God really wanted King David to do was watch over and shepherd His people Israel. 2 Samuel 7:5-17 In these verses there are seven key promises: 1) David's name will be Great 2) Israel will have a secure home 3) David will have rest from his enemies 4) David will have a ruling dynasty

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
