“For You, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, have revealed this to Your servant, saying, ‘I will build you a house.’ Therefore Your servant has found it in his heart to pray this prayer to You. “And now, O Lord GOD, You are God, and Your words are true, and You have promised this goodness to Your servant. Now therefore, let it please You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue before You forever; for You, O Lord GOD, have spoken it, and with Your blessing let the house of Your servant be blessed forever.”

2 Samuel 7:27-29

Recently I have pointed out my house and family were gifts from God that I prayed to protect and then prayed restore before it lead to me losing everything and being tossed from yet another life.

David’s prayer is full of words of devout affection toward God. He had low thoughts of his own merits, as I do not think so highly myself either. All we have must be looked upon as Divine gifts. David speaks very highly and honorably of the Lord’s favors to him. Considering what the character and condition of man is, we may be amazed that God should deal with David as He does.

The promise of Christ includes all “if the Lord God be ours, what more can we ask, or think of?” Ephesians 3:20.

I did my best and put my heart and soul into making a life in that home. After having been thru so much loss and trial for years prior to this. Never did I put myself above anyone and always did what things I could for the kids and their mother. After my prayers essentially stopped protecting the home from attack and even invasion, I did finally get one child back on board with me in Bible and prayer, that being Grace. That made the devil more angry …

He knows us better than we know ourselves and therefore I was satisfied with what He has done for us. What more can we say for ourselves in our prayers than God has said for us in His promises? However, many things started to falter and eventually ended altogether. Some of it was my own fault. We stopped reading the Bible before dinner, stopped eating at the table and stopped holding our own services in the sanctuary. I could no longer get their mother to spend time at the altar. Over the months I often mentioned that we have gotten away from all this, but no one paid it any mind. Video games and entertainment took over, also partially my fault. My moral authority all went out the window …

Only I for a while kept up in prayer and trying to maintain the ministry alone. Without the love and support if them of course it never grew into anything beyond the internet. Even my videos rarely got attention.

David attributes all to the free grace of God. Both the great things He had done for him and the great things God had made known to him. All was for His word’s sake, that is, for the sake of Christ the eternal Word.

Prayer which is from the tongue only will not please God; it must be found in the heart, lifted up and poured out before God. For a time I wondered and worried if my prayers no longer held any meaning or impact because things I had previously been protecting with prayer were not being protected anymore …

Then finally Grace joined me again in reading the word and praying with me. I go in circles with God about this a lot right now because I am scared her renewed faith is now broken by her mother’s actions against me and this has damaged her daughter greatly having two fathers taken from her …

With God, saying and doing are not two different things as they often are with men; God will do as He has said. The promises of God are not made to us by name, as to David, but they belong to all who believe in Jesus and plead them in His name. I came here knowing gods plan and tho I failed in leading, I prayed desperately for everything to be renewed so I could start fresh where we left off on the right path …

So here I am in this position now while the devil has been allowed to take my kingdom from me. I barely eat and have little motivation for this. I have things to do, people and responsibilities I care about that need me, and I need them …

If I am not to be returned to that home. If Grace has not continued in prayer to bring me back … then all of these happenings are senseless.
