17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hands. 17:48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
17:49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and stroke the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. 17:50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and stroke the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. (1 Samuel 17:47-50 KJV)
As I said before, life is repeated and repeated again. But, let me tell you the beginning of this saga before I get to David because Samuel was before Saul where David is placed and became king after Saul.
Samuel governed in Israel until he was more than ninety years old. When Samuel was old, the people of Israel came to him with a request. They wanted a king, not an invisible king ruling from heaven, but a human king, a king like the nations around them had. Samuel warned Israel that a king would bring new burdens and new taxes, but the people persisted. God told Samuel to give them what they wanted. Be careful what you ask God for! Sometimes He gives it to us, and we regret the day He did.
Saul was the first king and he started well (sound familiar?) but he soon disobeyed God. God tolerated him for a while before finally saying “The Lord has rejected you as king over Israel!” (15:26) David was an unknown that tended his brother’s sheep. By accident he was in the vicinity where the Philistines, with Goliath, were to battle the army of Israel. David stepped in, won the battle, and became an instant hero.
Saul got jealous and tried to kill David and David was on the run for fourteen years. Saul and his three sons’ lives came to an end with a battle between Israel and the Philistines.
Remember, Trump did not win the popular vote but had promised many things. After getting into office, Trump began to act like a king (cult leader?) and his following loved it. Everything imaginable against God he did or had a hand in it. But there are a few Davises around. His party is imploding and will burst wide open.
The people wanted a king/cult leader, and they got it. What are they scheming now? It was shown that the person and ideas they chose was not what is needed in the nation. The people must choose a David and God will do the rest. Bring God onto the scene, atone for your sins, and stay true to God, not the cult and the followers.
Remember, David was on the run for fourteen years before God eased Saul out of the picture. Also, be careful what you ask for, it may not be what you want. What was yesterday is today and will be tomorrow.
