I have been asking God to speak to me and to move actively in my life. I am waiting and watching and listening for His voice. I have been praying for the opposite of fear when He does speak. I am asking for the will to obey when He speaks. I am asking for peace.
What do we know about David? We know he was not allowed to build the Lord’s temple because he had too much blood on his hands. We know he went to war a lot. We know he had an affair with Bathsheba, and he had Uriah killed. He lied. He succumbed to temptation. He abused his power. David did not really live a blameless life either, did he?
Have you ever felt ganged up on? Like everyone is against you? Like attacks are coming from all directions and you just can’t catch a break?
We may have all felt this way at one time or another for a variety of reasons.
