2 Sam 8:1-18
Today, we read of David‘s exploits and conquests as king. He took over lands, received gifts in silver and gold. He defeated the Philistines, the Moabites, and Syrians. He also built alliances with Toi king of Hamath, who brought him gifts through his son Joram.
All of David’s exploits were due to the fact that God was with him, and preserved him whereever he went. With God on your side exploits are possible, victory is assured. Are you a friend of God?
Some verses to remember
vs 14b-15 And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went. And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed judgment and justice unto all his people.
