Re:Verse passage – 2 Samuel 5 (day two)
David became greater and greater, for the Lord God of hosts was with him. vs. 10
This right here. If there is any doubt as to why Saul’s reign ended and David’s did not it is this verse. The Lord was with him. Was it because David was better than Saul? More educated? More highly favored? Or was it a mater of David consistently seeking after the Lord? His walk was not perfect, but when re-directed David knew where to turn for guidance, strength, and correction. No battle is too insignificant. No decision too small. Everything is the Lord’s, so go ahead and lay it before him. Seen God work here before? That should be more reason to trust him again, and not assume he’ll just show up.
