Finally Established

Today's reading: 2 Samuel 5:1-16

I'm a type A, a go-getter. Once I'm given an assignment or set my sights on a goal, I'm all in, pushing full forward to achieve whatever it is I'm focused on or working toward. So waiting can be a challenge for me. When things don't progress as quickly, or in the manner I envision, I'm susceptible to frustration, discouragement and doubt. That's why I'm thankful for getting to see David's journey--in detail--and for the lessons his life story has provided over the past weeks. Many years pass and numerous difficult experiences transpire before David finally becomes king over all of Israel. And through it all, he stays the course spiritually, keeping his eyes on God and trusting His plan and timing. What an example.

Think back over what we've read the past few weeks, beginning with 1 Samuel 16 where David was anointed by Samuel. What have you learned about God's timing and trusting God from David's journey? Tami
