Likely, you know the powerful king David became. He was one of the mightiest kings of all history. But there was a time when things were not so good for David. Read on…
“Oh, God, my Lord, step in;
work a miracle for me—you can do it!
Get me out of here—your love is so great!—
I’m at the end of my rope, my life in ruins.
I’m fading away to nothing, passing away,
my youth gone, old before my time.
I’m weak from hunger and can hardly stand up,
my body a rack of skin and bones.” ~david
David spent much of his time as a young man staying one step ahead of his executioner. King Saul put a contract out on him more than once. He was worth more dead than alive. David continually poured his heart our to God. SAVE ME!
When we see someone continually struggling, why do we assume they must be bad people or doing bad things? Is it possible they might be one of the few that are actually doing something pleasing for God.
It’s not that God likes struggles, it just that God uses what satan throws at you to provide opportunity for your faith to increase. David’s life was defined by struggle before he became king.
THINK ABOUT THIS!: David’s life early on really stunk and yet he became the man whose heart chased after God. He was personally cared for and loved by God. It seems his struggles were just his defining time to become the man God wanted to spend eternity with.
There truly is hope for each of us..
