David Becomes King

Session 4.28 for July 8, 2012

In 2 Samuel 5:1-10, we read the story of how David, after being anointed in secret, hunted by Saul, and winning victories over enemies, finally becomes king. Through a complicated and emotional storyline that is full of fear, one thing becomes clear – David is blessed. God’s favor shines upon David, and he responds with graceful patience towards his enemies, waiting for the day when it is his turn to be king – a long, bloody, and painful road to kingship. Today, we may feel as though there is something that God has promised us, yet that promise seems impossibly far away and difficult. Yet even in the midst of that waiting and those hardships, we must not lose sight of God’s vision for our lives nor cease doing what is right.
