Day 98 - May We All Be Like David

Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023


Think ambitiously, be like David.

David continued to battle the Philistines and others who were against Israel. David sought any remaining descendants of Saul so that he could return their land and property to them.

He was told of Meribaal, who was lame in both feet. David gave him the property and invited him to always sit at his table to eat. So Meribaal did. David's kindness to Hanun, King of the Ammonites, was rebuffed because evil people planted ideas about David trying to trick them. As a result, they went to battle with David. David's army was stronger.


David was a kind person and fierce in loyalty and battle. He is truly an example for us, especially in light of the persecution he experienced from Saul due to his jealousy. May David stand as an example of goodness in his prayers to God, love of others, and strength of character. He truly cared and showed it consistently.


Prayer:

God, today I am thinking of David. He was good, fierce, and a true believer in you. Please help me be like David. He knew how to forgive and be honorable. There is so much I can learn from the way he lived life. You loved him for his goodness, and he was among your chosen. I can see why. I am not David, nor do I face the difficulties he had to face, but I would like to exemplify his goodness. Whisper truths to me when I need to make decisions that will help me be a great person for you. I am grateful for that and the opportunity to grow others' faith in you. Amen.

I echo this sentence: Whisper truths to me when I need to make decisions that will help me be a great person for you.

Yes, I agree with you that we all need to be like King David. I'm really happy for people like you who are getting their inspiration from the Bible, and for that, you have my utmost respect. - Danwil Reyes

Thank you, Danwil. I couldn't do this without the Bible. It is a long story, but I know the Lord called me to read the Bible from cover to cover in a year and every day to write a related reflection, prayer, and draw a tangle to support the day. I prayed continuously to the Holy Spirit to write with me and help me select the tangles. This has been a journey that has changed my life, and I know that God wants to use it to help others do the same. I became so enthralled in the initial reading and draft that I actually completed the "paper" version in 9 months.


Thank you for such a beautiful comment. You…
