Not the end of the Story
As a mere boy David was anointed by one of the most powerful and effective prophets of all time. He was anointed, not to be pageboy, not to be the king’s confidant but to be king. But a few short years later he is standing in a cave shaking his head …. totally confused. This seemingly misplaced shepherd cries: Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life (Ps 142:4, NIV). But that was not the end of the story. That scenario certainly didn’t consume most of the pages of the book about David’s life. We also must read all the many, many pages which tell about all the battles David won. As he dances before the ark of the Lord while it is being brought to Zion (2Sam 6:14), they have come too late to tell him God does not make a way for those whom He calls. Scoffers have come too late to tell David God is not faithful, that God does not bring to victory those He ordains.
