Some seasons of life are just tough. Sometimes, we just cannot catch a break. Sometimes, people let us down. Sometimes, it feels like everything is fighting against us. Sometimes, we feel like an army has besieged us, and war has broken out against us. I am currently in such a time.
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?
