2 Samuel 5.12
giving his kingship world prominence for the sake of Israel, his people.
you are always purposeful, God! right down to why you bless us - you overflow your goodness to us to the point that the world cannot contain it anymore for the sake of who you love, for the sake of those following you. thank you, God, for extravagantly making our lives so rich that the world cannot mistake it for anything or anyone else - rich with your love, rich with your peace no matter the storm, rich with joy in the midst of trouble, secure and safe in you no matter what we are told otherwise, held in your hands no matter how our natural senses scream otherwise. thank you, jesus. thank you.
