David Becomes King Over Israel
11 All Israel came together to David at Hebron and said, “We are your own flesh and blood. 2 In the past, even while Saul was king, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the Lord your God said to you, ‘You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.’”
3 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, he made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel, as the Lord had promised through Samuel.
God was working through the efforts of many people. God is sovereign over history. He directs events to accomplish his will. No matter what people may do to hinder God’s work, God controls all events and works his will in them. God’s promises are worth waiting for even when his timetable does not match our expectations and desires. Are you wondering about events in your life? Are you waiting on the outcome of plans you have made or goals you want to achieve? Are you looking for purpose? Know that God is for you, and his will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. So, as you are journeying through your life, look for God’s guidance and listen to his guidance. You will know your direction as doors open and events produce themselves in your life.
