II Samuel 7:25 (NIV) “And now, Lord God, keep forever the promise you have made concerning your servant and his house. Do as you promised, 26 so that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, ‘The Lord Almighty is God over Israel!’ And the house of your servant David will be established in your sight.
There are times when you may feel as if you’re on top of the world. At times you may feel as though your struggle with sin is over. In such times, it’s tempting to relax and neglect your relationship with God. But then life surprises you with an unexpected problem, and you come to your senses. I need to remind you today that you’re never so spiritually right that you can afford to neglect your relationship with God.
Take it from a good man who went before you. King David had reached the pinnacle of political success. He killed giants, won battles, captured the hearts of the people, and overcame enemies on every side. While he was in this comfortable position, life surprised him with the rebellion of his own son. (Read the story II Samuel Chapter 15).
It may have been that David, in the midst of his successes, had fallen out of the habit of relying on God day by day. But he quickly placed his life back in God’s hands after the rebellion. God did protect him and returned him to the throne in Jerusalem.
Point to ponder- When life hits you with the unexpected, let it be a reminder that your life needs to be in God’s hands continually. I am living witness of the need for today’s message people of God!
