God’s Word Will Be Fulfilled

Grace and peace be unto you.

The story is told that after Saul’s death, the men of Judah anointed David as their king but Israel rejected him and embraced Ishbosheth, Saul’s son. Consequently, there was hostility between the house of David and Saul for over five years. Even so, David grew stronger and stronger while Saul’s house grew weaker and weaker. In the course of time, Ishbosheth died at the hands of two of his captains. Then, the elders of Israel spoke with David and he made a covenant with them. After which, they anointed him as their king (2 Samuel 2-4; 2 Samuel 5:1-3).

God anointed David as Israel’s next king after Saul disobeyed him. Nonetheless, he did not tell him when he would ascend to the throne. Hence, after Saul’s death, he gave him one tribe, Judah to govern. David accepted the responsibility, while trusting that in God’s time he would also give him Israel. As expected, he was not disappointed. After several years, God gave him Israel. Scripture says, “…I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled” (Jeremiah 1:12).

God chose David as king, therefore it was his duty to give Israel to him. As such, David did not fight for the position or try to subdue the nation. Instead, he obeyed God and waited. Similarly, God will give you what he promised. He does not want you to quarrel or fight to obtain what is rightfully yours. He knows how to deliver on his promise and will do so when he is ready. Scripture says, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him…” (2 Corinthians 1:20).     

Heavenly Father, I praise you for your faithfulness. Help us to believe that you will deliver on your promises. In Jesus’ name, amen.
