God Chooses our Times
We tend to imagine that we could do great things if only our situation was different. If we had more favourable circumstances or greater opportunity, then we could be all that we hope to be. But that wasn’t David’s story. Nothing in the background of David suggested that he would be king. There were significant barriers that stood against him ever becoming king. Dr. John speaks of David’s greatness in history and in Scripture, but David didn’t pursue fame or power. He pursued the purposes of God. David’s story demonstrates that God chooses our time and chooses us in our time. As we seek His plan, we find significance and blessings.
