Isaiah 55:11 says, “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” To set the stage for this narrative of Absalom’s life…David had just committed his terrible sin with Bathsheba. Nathan had delivered God’s judgment…the sword would never depart from David’s house, evil would arise from his own house, his wives would be given to another and be violated in broad daylight in public. David’s sin had far reaching consequences! Now in the lives of Amnon, his first born son, and Absalom, another son, David experienced God’s judgment. God’s Word is Truth! None of God’s Words are void…none will just pass away without success. Do you treat God’s Word with understanding of their validity? Do you trust them to come true? Trust…Believe…God is faithful and true!
