David: A Picture of Godís Sovereignty

Post  Waqar Daniel on Mon 06 Aug 2007, 7:37 pm

Sometimes itís hard to understand why God allows adversity. In the midst of a personal tragedy, the Lordís sovereignty may seem to be impractical and unrealistic theology. But Romans 8:28 says God works all things together for the believerís good.

Davidís writings show the importance of trusting in Godís sovereignty, no matter what. Sometimes itís easy to think of biblical writers as perfect, almost Christlike figures. But Davidís life was full of adversity, temptation, sin, and forgiveness.

When he ran for his life from King Saul, God spared him. When he yielded to temptation with Bathsheba, God spared him. When his son attempted to take Davidís throne, God spared him and kept him as king.
In all of these unfortunate circumstances, David discovered God was protecting and guiding Him every step of the way. God used him for extraordinary purposes, despite his human failings. These experiences taught David to fully trust in the Lordís sovereignty.

Those of us in similar situations should ask, Do we believe God is in control? If Heís not, then who is? In other words, if life events are random and without purpose, then who do we turn to in our trials?

In 1 Chronicles 29:12, David says God rules over everything. His hand strengthens everyone. Have faith in the Lordís ability to strengthen you with His sovereign hand. You may not always understand His reasons. But you can surely trust His purposes.
