Don’t you sometimes wish life could be linear? Don’t you sometimes wish you could just deal with one thing and then another and after that the next, perhaps with some breaks in between?
With God’s help and direction you can do this.
- Be confident
- Be decisive and
Don’t become bitter or mean spirited.
That’s a heart after God’s
Please note with me first of all,
THE HEART OF DAVID
2 Samuel 1:4 (KJV)
And David said unto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.
THE HARDNESS OF DAVID
2 Samuel 1:13-17 (KJV)
And David said unto the young man that told him, Whence art thou? And he answered, I am the son of a stranger, an Amalekite.
And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD’S anointed?
And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.
And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD’S anointed.
And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son:
THE HEAD OF DAVID
2 Samuel 2:1-4 (KJV)
And it came to pass after this, that David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah? And the LORD said unto him, Go up. And David said, Whither shall I go up? And he said, Unto Hebron.
So David went up thither, and his two wives also, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail Nabal’s wife the Carmelite.
And his men that were with him did David bring up, every man with his household: and they dwelt in the cities of Hebron.
And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah. And they told David, saying, That the men of Jabeshgilead were they that buried Saul.
2 Samuel 1:1-4 How Went the Matter?
