Refusing to Run Ahead of God

The confidence of a warrior is not enough to enable a king. David knew how to fight; he will need to learn how to reign. Dr. John points to God’s care and schooling for David as he ran from Saul. A key lesson was learned in a cave in En Gedi. We learn to wait on God.

Only the naive think that David was prepared to be king at the defeat of Goliath. David demonstrated great courage and faith, but there was much in him that needed to be addressed by the grace of God. Dr. John teaches that the path towards glory is marked by suffering. God’s intent is not pain, but purification. He shaped David for His purposes, even as he shapes us too.
