So he said to his men, “Far be it from me because of the LORD that I should do this thing to my lord, the LORD’s anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, since he is the LORD ‘s anointed.” (1Sa 24:6 NAS77)
David has been anointed king. He has led Israel in battle. The people love him. Saul tried to kill him. Jonathan (the crown prince) is sure he will be king. Saul is hunting him. But, . . . .
He still won’t take it by force.
Even though David knows he will be king, he trusts God to bring it about. No demands. No subtle politics. No campaigns. No coups attempt. No taking matters into his own hands. He leaves them in God’s.
What a great place to leave things. Can’t think of more capable hands.
God’s plan. God’s provision. God’s timing.
Yep . . .
It’s all good!
