116 - David's Military records and victories

Kathleen's thoughts

2 samuel 8: 9-18 ... 1 Chronicles 18: 9-17 Is...David's government and officers named .
 Joab son of Zeruiah was over the army;
Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud was court historian;
 Zadok son of Ahitub and Ahimelech son of Abiathar were priests;
 Seraiah was court secretary;
 Benaiah son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and
David's sons were chief officials.
Joram Congratulates David -
Edom subdued -
Spoils dedicated
And The Lord made David victorious wherever he went.

2 Samuel 23: 8-39... 1 Chronicles 11; 10-14 Speaks about David's mighty men.

Psalms 60: 1-12 & 108: 6-13 is Davids prayer for deliverance. What I found interesting is this from Psalm 60: 1-3 God, You have rejected us; You have broken out against us; You have been angry, Restore us! You have shaken the land and split it open. Heal its fissures, for it shudders. You have made Your people suffer hardship; Is this a earthquake that David is speaking here? This has brought to mind that when God is angry the earth always shakes...Food for thought. We are having so many earthquakes today???

1 Kings 11: 15-20 is about David striking down  all the males in Edom and at the time Hadad a small boy escaped and went to Egypt where the Pharaoh gave to him a wife who was Queen Tahpenes sister and she gave him a son Genubath and Tahpenes weaned him herself and Genubath lived with the Pharaoh sons.

I find this so amazing how all this history has been documented so many years ago. So here we can see that our Father in heaven is a Father of Order and everything is recorded for our children to remember and never to forget about our inheritance as it is written in Deuteronomy.
