Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Samuel 8:6b
The Lord gave David victory wherever he went.
This is an unequivocal statement. David didn’t win occasionally or every other time. No! In this passage, he was on a terror and won everywhere he went. Certainly one must ask, what are the “Principles Of WINNING?”
There’s little doubt that David and his men were schooled in the art of war. From the time he had slung a stone and hit Goliath squarely in the forehead, he had studied and practiced war at every level. But many men and women have done this only to end up losing badly. In the fifteenth verse of this chapter the writer says that David ruled Israel, doing justly and rightly by ALL of his people. Certainly there have been leaders who were fair and right or right or just fair for some of their people. But how many leaders in history have done justly (fair) and righteously for ALL of their people. Yes, it was God who made him win everywhere, but there are also David’s “Principles Of WINNING” that compelled God to make it happen.
I need Your help this AM. Help me lead ALL of the folks You have placed in my care with Justice and Righteousness. Amen
