John Bradshaw - Real Strength
TOPICS: Every Word, Humility

What event from the life of King David best illustrates real strength, being gracious towards King Saul, getting a revenge on the Amalekites after they destroyed his home and captured his people, the victory over Absalom perhaps?

Let me give you an example of David at his strongest. When he was leaving Jerusalem after Absalom had rebelled, a man named Shimei cursed David bitterly Abhishai, David's military leader, offered to decapitate the nasty Shimei.

That would have stopped his cursing, but David said, "Let him alone, and let him curse". He added, "It may be that the Lord will look on my affliction, and...repay me with good for his cursing this day". That's in 2 Samuel 16.

David was being insulted and humiliated, but instead of responding with aggression, he responded with humility. David was never stronger than that. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
