6/4 David gained the trust of his people in his covenant with the Creator

Published on July 20, 2012 By Susanne

Welcome back to the Covenant made between Jehovah and the shepherd boy, David.  We saw his rise to life in the palace after the defeat of the giant, Goliath.  David remanded true to his calling, even in the face of overwhelming pressure from King Saul.  He was hunted in the caves and in the fields, a marked man.  Yet, David did not lift a hand against the Lord’s anointed, King Saul.

We learn in 1 Samuel, chapter 22 onwards, that many men came to David.  Some were valiant warriors and others were the misfits of the army.  From his group, David formed an army and continued to defeat their enemies.

Chapter 31 in 1 Samuel brings us to King Saul’s death and David is triumphant in his many battles.  He is recognised as the rightful, anointed King and his rule begins another chapter for the people.
