125 - David the King

Kathleen's thoughts

Psalm 10: 1-18. 122: 1-9, 92: 1-15

2 Samuel 18: 19-33 19: 1-30
David learns of Absalom's death and his mourning is so severe that it disturbs Israel because of what Absalom had done to him he was told to pull himself together by Joab and be king to the nation and be glad he has his crown restored.
David pardons Shimei.
David returns to Jerusalem and he regains his seat as King of Israel.

David writes some beautiful Psalms one is for justice  and praise of Jerusalem  and songs of praises. The righteous thrive like a Palm tree and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon.  Planted in the house of the Lord, they thrive in the courtyards of our God. David was always praising our Lord God he breathed it walked it and sang it. Just from reading the word his life with the Lord was I would say spent on his knees in worship and praise. I must admit too that he walked in a lot of forgiveness, what a gentle man to have done this.

Mark 11: 25 And whenever you stand praying if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you your wrongdoing.
