“You know that David my father was unable to build a house for the name of the LORD his God because of the wars which surrounded him, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet.” (1 Kings 5:3)
David is considered one of the most faithful people in the Bible… yet, his life was surrounded by wars. Being faithful doesn’t mean life will be easy.
The most faithful are the ones thrown in the fiery furnaces and the lion’s dens. They are left as examples for all the rest of us of how God will redeem and deliver His people.
The greater your faith, the larger the target you become. But God delivered David from all his enemies. You will never know how big God is until you trust Him to lead you through dark waters.
“… through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22)
