Re:Verse passage – 2 Samuel 5 (day three)

“And David knew that the Lord had established him as king.”

One can read the Psalms for five minutes and figure out that fear, dread, and terror made frequent appearances in David’s life. In those times, there was more he didn’t know than he did know. That fact can easily upstage everything else. It can be a person’s undoing. It was almost David’s undoing during those difficult seasons. But in the middle of the thickest, most impenetrable times of uncertainty, there was one thing he did know: God had enabled him to exist in that moment—purposefully not randomly, deliberately not capriciously. The breath you draw is evidence that God has not lost track of you. Is that the only thing you know? It is enough.

  1. I shared your blog w a friend who called me for prayer last night. Your words were perfect for her this morning- God has not lost track of you. Thanks Brian.

  2. Everything is a two-way street. God has not lost track of us; we have not lost track of Him. Active engagement and ongoing communication with God are the right path so we can feel God’s presence. We need Him and He needs us.

    In real life, we need to remember that without constant and ongoing support and clear directions of those who care for our successes, who have the power and the authority over us, we cannot accomplish anything. We cannot rely on our own knowledge, experience and own understanding for personal and professional sustainability, development and growth. David provided us a great example of a great follower-leader relationship.
