2 Samuel 5:4
“David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.”
-David became King when he was thirty years old. He had been anointed again previously as king by Samuel at a fairly young age & the Spirit of the Lord fell upon him (1 Sam 16:13). Before he became king; he won several battles including; killed a lion & bear with his bare hands; & killing Goliath with only a stone & sling. These are the experiences that made him stronger in God, waiting relentlessly on God with fear & steadfastness; & always consulted God. He was not disappointed & never waited in vain. These are the experiences that we go through in our lives. Facing various challenges & hardships, waiting on the promises of God, praying for specific matters for years; holding fast our faith in God. At Gods’ appointed time; David was elevated to become king; where he ruled for seven years in Judah & thirty three years in Israel. Like king David who neither despaired nor lost hope, we are called to pray without ceasing & persevere despite the challenges that we face; knowing that God is always faithful & at His own time He will elevate us to new levels of grace because we belong to Him. God has called us His children through the blood of Lamb, giving us shining crowns & bright stars that we may always find favor in Him.
Lord You are good & Your mercies endures forever. Thank You Holy Spirit for we have always experienced Your mercy & love even when we are at the verge of loosing hope; You have always encouraged us & given us hope for a better future. Father; You were faithful to David when He was a young boy even making him a king of Your holy nation at a young age. Remember us Lord during this time we call on You; prosper us in all things through Your merciful love, cover us always with Your precious blood, shine a bright light on our destinies & elevate us to new levels of grace; for Your love for us never fails. You are worthy Jesus to take the scroll & to open its seals for You were slain & have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe, tongue, people & nation, & have made us kings & priests through Your blood Jesus so that we may reign on the earth, receive our thanksgiving & praise. You are holy Lord beyond all human comprehension; guide us & direct us in all things according to Your divine will. Amen
