All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “Here we are, your own flesh and blood. Even while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led us out to battle and brought us back. The Lord also said to you, ‘You will shepherd My people Israel and be ruler over Israel.’”
2 Samuel 5:1-2
Look how the Lord rewarded David for his faithfulness. He may not have had the support of his brothers when he slayed Goliath, but he is surrounded by warrior brothers who fulfill God's purpose by anointing him king.
When we go through the battles of life, so too will God provide those friends who can be closer than a brother... closer than a sister. He knows the support and help we need; the encouragement which may be otherwise lacking.
Let us praise God today for His mercy and grace. For He is truly our Father of this Family of God.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
