Day By Day Through The Bible: Twenty-Four Days in 2 Samuel - Digital Download
2 Samuel is a continuation of 1 Samuel. We left 1 Samuel when Saul and Jonathan were both killed in battle. David is going to hear that news in 2 Samuel. In 1 Samuel, we also saw the anointing, the training, and the rise of David as the next King of Israel. 2 Samuel focuses on David’s reign as king. 2 Samuel is rich with parallels between David’s kingdom and the coming Messiah’s kingdom. There is a major turning point right in the middle of this book; we come to it as we watch the development of David as king, and then his public and personal spiral downward because of sin and consequences of sin in his own life. This 45-page devotion takes you through the twenty-four chapters of 2 Samuel in 24 days.
Comment: If you are in leadership, think about the great lessons we just learned from this chapter. One, be sure the Lord, the God of hosts, is with you. Two, do not take matters into your own hands but allow God to establish you as a leader. And three, remember, your leadership is not about you. It is about the people you serve and the God who put you in the position in the first place. Lastly, as you lead, follow David’s lead. He inquired of the Lord regularly. Ask God questions and wait for His answers as you lead.
Prayer: Father, we are thankful You formed each one of us in our mother’s womb. You did so with a purpose in mind. You have something for us to do. Lord, help us discover our purpose, what You have in mind for us to do. Then Lord, help us do it with all our might knowing just like David, You were with him, You will be with us. You can give us victory in all we do if it is aligned with Your will for our lives. And You get all the glory and the praise. We pray it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
