“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and prayed, “Who am I, O Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And now, Sovereign Lord, in addition to everything else, you speak of giving your servant a lasting dynasty! Do you deal with everyone this way, O Sovereign Lord? “What more can I say to you? You know what your servant is really like, Sovereign Lord. Because of your promise and according to your will, you have done all these great things and have made them known to your servant. “How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you!”
‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭7:18-22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

King David. What a guy. A man after God’s own heart and yet as human as us. As flawed as can be then as remorseful as can be. The highest highs and lower than a snake’s belly. God forgave David because David asked for it and meant it. We can learn so much from King David and from the God he served. We can be just as thankful and remorseful as the king because we have the same needs! Both remorse and thankfulness. He longs for us to come to Him in all circumstances.
We have never heard of another God like Him!
