Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 7:20


7:20 David say - Either in a way of gratitude and praise, words cannot express my obligations to thee, nor my sense of these obligations: Or in a way of prayer. What can I ask of thee more than thou hast freely done? Thou knowest - Thou knowest my deep sense of thy favours, and my obligations to thee. And my condition and necessities, what I do or may need hereafter; and as thou knowest this, so I doubt not thou wilt supply me.

    V. 14 - I will chasten him with the rod of men. In this day people wonder why God allows wars; it's simply because of this verse - if he commit iniquity .......; even many 'church' people are committing iniquity, let alone un-churched. God allows wars, to hopefully get people to a place of repentance, but He doesn't cause them. Trials, persecutions for the same reason - repentance.

    Rest strenghtens, makes us effectivess and effecient. The Lord gave David rest from all his enemies. It was at this time he decided to build house for God. Rest makes us think right and this enable us to do exploit for God. It also enable us to achieve our goals and aspiirations too. No wonder God said come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I {God} will give you rest. He is waiting for us this day to give us rest.
