Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 24 (day two)
“Now, behold, I know that you will surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel will be established in your hand.” vs. 20
…and the next day David became the King of all Israel. Nope, that’s not how it happened. David’s obedience did not produce the immediate effect that most of us would expect. In fact it would be some time before David ruled over a united Kingdom. David was not in it for his own glory, rather he clearly discerned the timing was in God’s hands. Isn’t that an incredible lesson? If we hear from the Lord, our expectation needs to be that he will see us through on his timing alone. Every moment until then is about preparation for the task. Submit your calendar to God today.
