Saul Could See the Wise Spiritual Nature at Work in David

1 Samuel 18:14-15 (KJB) And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him. 15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.

Do you ever meet another person whose very presence shines vividly with the identity and purpose of Christ?  Godly people are few and far between in this spiritually dark world.  Why, because many people ...

David Asked Himself a Great Question

David Asked Himself a Great Question

Psalm 116:12 (KJB) What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

David was overly concerned about another who had spoken ill of him.  Rather than continuing to concentrate any further with misdirected energy on this particular incident, David chose to refocus his mind upon things of God.

Wow! What a way to remove oneself from fretting over an adverse situation and move victoriously on to things of an eternal nature.  ...

I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

David had a young infant child who became gravely ill.

This illness ...

Hitting Rock Bottom

Psalm 40:1-2 (KJB)   To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.  2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

Born A Sinner

Born A Sinner

Psalm 51:5 (KJB)   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

David was heartbroken in this verse.  Not because somebody had done something to him, but because of what he chose to do to himself.  It is quite an eye opening picture a man can get when he realizes his natural standing before the holiness and righteousness of God.

A man cannot truly look to God without seeing a sincere picture of ...

God’s Unlimited Blessing

Psalm 37:25-26 (KJB)   I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.  26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

David was looking in the rear-view mirror as his past unraveled before his eyes.  He could see the faithfulness of God who always provided just what was needed whenever a need arose.  David could always count on the providence of God, ...

Like A Broken Vessel

June 15th, 2017

Like A Broken Vessel

Psalm 31:12 (KJB)   I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

A broken vessel is not of use as it was originally intended.

This verse, recorded by David, implies he felt his life was over, was not valuable, and was like a broken bottle not good for anything.

Perhaps David felt he would be better off dead because he was not useable for anything.

Likely you and I have felt worthless ...

Sin Creates a Slippery Slope

Psalm 26:1 (KJB)   A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.

David was so sure of his spiritual standing with God he sought out for God to judge his life.  David knew that he had remained on the narrow path of God choosing not to slid down the “slippery slope” of sin and shame because he ...

Thou Art Mine

January 13, 2017

Thou Art Mine

Psalm 22:10 (KJB)   I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

David reminded God that He had been his God since he was formed.  God had created him in His own fashion and brought Him forth into this world.

God did the same thing for every human being that includes you and I.  God formed us and knew us before we were born on this earth!  He alone is our ...
