Today is Sunday, August 22, 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 2 Samuel 5:3.
When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel.
David’s past achievements and prevailing abilities were the reason why the Israelites approached and tried to persuade him to become their king.
It was as if they were begging him and David had to take his time to consider their proposal.
But these days, people do not wait to be chosen as king David, rather they fight over kingship and it is always because of the benefits they stand to gain.
Israel’s king was looked upon as sacred since the king was somehow considered next to God.
But David did not struggle for kingship, and when his time came the people chose him.
The story of David, therefore, teaches us to wait on God’s appointed time and not try to impose ourselves on the people’s choice; because this is the reason why this generation is suffering.
Pray that God should give us good leaders with the fear of God that will make life good and better for its citizens.
