00753 - Books of the Bible : 2 Samuel

Through David's story, we see the importance of faith in navigating life. Despite his flaws, David consistently turned to God for guidance and strength, teaching us to maintain our faith even in challenging times.

After being confronted by the prophet Nathan about his wrongdoing, David doesn't deny it. Instead, he repents and seeks God's forgiveness. This humility and trust in God's mercy is a powerful example of genuine faith. It shows us that even when we falter, we can find redemption through faith and repentance.

In 2 Samuel 7:22 (NCV), David praises God, saying, "Lord God, there is no one like you; you are God, and we have heard the greatness of your name." This verse reflects David's unwavering belief in God's sovereignty and faithfulness. By studying 2 Samuel, we learn to place our faith in God's promises and His ability to lead us through every season of life.


When you do wrong, own it, admit it and repent; God likes that.


Help me to come to You when I have done something wrong. Amen.
