Today’s Scripture Reading: 2 Samuel 15:1-17:14
Today’s Devotion: The Spirit of Absolom
Heavenly Father, here’s another example of David’s amazing heart. His son has worked a four year plan to steal the throne from him. Now David’s running for his life and these are his words to Zadok, the priest…
Then the king instructed Zadok to take the Ark of God back into the city. “If the Lord sees fit,” David said, “he will bring me back to see the Ark and the Tabernacle again. But if he is through with me, then let him do what seems best to him.” –2 Samuel 15:25-26
Lord, this kind of trust is my desire…
- If You see fit
- Do what seems best to You
Jesus, it sounds like Your words:
“Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” –Luke 22:42
Father, thank You for the example of David. Thank You for the example of Your Son. As this day begins, my prayer is that You do what seems best for my life and Your Kingdom.
Father, yesterday we lost one of your examples–David Wilkerson. Reverend Wilkerson has been a world-changer for Your Kingdom. I believe he lived his life, “Not my will but Yours be done.” These were his last words on yesterday’s blog post.
Lord, You can be trusted. You are our hope!
Thank You for Your goodness and love.
In Your Name we pray. Amen and Amen!
