God Has Used Their Lives To Speak To Us

Think about David. How many times he ran from one cave to the other escaping from Saul who was determined to kill him. Then think about the short cut Moses took by killing an Egyptian and what he went through – living in the desert as a result. He decided to take a short cut for the plan of his life for the nation of Israel. Once we discover God’s will, that’s not the end of the story; we now have to walk it out. One of the hardest parts about following God’s will is moving in His timing. Moses tried to bring God’s will to pass when he moved in his own strength and killed an Egyptian (Ex. 2:11-12 and Acts 7:24-28). Attempting to rush God’s timing actually set Moses back thirty years (Gen. 15:13 and Ex. 12:41)!

David is one of the greatest examples in the Old Testament of the good things to do, and at the same time, the bad things to avoid or not to do. David was one of the best in many ways and one of the worst in many ways. Every person learning about David will find something in the life of David that you can apply to yourself. If you don’t study the word of God and learn these things at somebody else’s expense, then you are destined to fall into the same mistakes yourself. We can learn for example, how David’s sexual sin with Bathsheba affected his family and the nation of Israel. There were tens of thousands of people who died because of David’s sin. By the help of the Holy Spirit, we can learn not to commit adultery, we can learn how to keep ourselves seeking the Lord even when things are not going on well. We can learn these at David’s expense.
