This morning, we see the Lord use David to conquer the remaining land He promised to give Abraham and His people. This was a picture of what Jesus would do in subduing all His enemies and ruling as King over all God’s creation. We see: 

  • First, that the Lord used David to finish conquering the land of Canaan. 
  • And second, that He also used David to subdue several other nations, giving him control for the first time of the whole of the Promised Land.

We are challenged to submit now to the reign of this merciful King Jesus rather than to have to submit to Him later as the terrible Judge appointed by God. We also see that since, through David, God gave Israel all the Land He had promised them, we should not be looking now for that promise to be fulfilled again, but should look for the spiritual fulfillment of the promise in Christ.
