David, like Esther, is one of my favorite people in the bible. David was a whole lot of things. He was a shepherd of sheep, he was a loyal friend, he was a poet, he was a mighty warrior, he was a king and much more. My pastor, Pastor Henderson, at New Beginnings Church in Matthews, NC talks a lot about David. And I have decided I want to learn more about David for myself.
So I have began a study, if you will, on David. My study right now focuses mainly on reading about him in the bible. I intend on reading other books about him, as well. What I am finding is that David consulted with God in just about everything he did. Particularly when he wanted to know whether or not to go into battle, David seeked the Lord, he called upon the Lord for direction, and the Lord told him what to do. So far I am in the book of 2 Samuel and there hasn't been a military battle David has lost.
Isn't it awesome, when we consult God, how He will direct our paths? David was victorious, because of He knew to do just that. He knew where his real strength came from.
