Read Thru the Word 2024 | Today's Lesson

April 20, 2024


2 SAMUEL 2:1-3:5, 1 CHRONICLES 3:1-4, 2 SAMUEL 23:8-17, 1 CHRONICLES 11:10-19, 2 SAMUEL 23:18-39, 1 CHRONICLES 11:20-47

Almost Fulfilled

Then the men of Judah came to David and anointed him king over the people of Judah.‍

2 Samuel 2:4a

My Takeaways

Something Old

David didn’t rush in blindly and seize it. Instead, he carefully sought the LORD. David knew the promise was from God, so he knew God could fulfill it without any manipulation from him.

The truth is, almost fulfilled may come before fully fulfilled. When the promise is almost fulfilled:

  • Maintain a right relationship with God.
  • Continue seek the Lord.
  • Continue to obey the Lord.
  • Proceed with discernment.

Our lives should be lived in the same manner whether our promise is fully or almost fulfilled.

Something New

Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, performed great exploits. He struck down Moab’s two mightiest warriors. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion.
1 Chronicles 11:22 (NIV)

This is why I love Chronicles; it includes details that other portions of scripture do not.

Something To Do

Live my life the same manner whether my promise is fully or almost fulfilled.

Mark as Complete
