2 Samuel 15:23-16:23; John 18:25-19:22; Psalm 119:113-128; Proverbs 16:10-11
Wisdom is essential when you are going through a challenging time. David’s very future was at stake and his own son was threatening everything. As David fled from Jerusalem, he needed wisdom to order his steps. David was a trained soldier and he knew how to approach a situation from a non-emotional perspective.
Even though David was emotionally hurt about his son’s betrayal, he did not let it override his ability to think strategically about the future. He sent the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem with a priest that was faithful to him. He also sent one of his key advisors back so that he would have an “inside man” to inform him of Absalom’s moves.
Absalom had might and manipulation but David had God and His wisdom. And as you can obviously conclude, wisdom from God will always win the day! No matter what circumstance you may face as a person, leader, manager, parent, or professional, know that God has the right wisdom for your situation and it will always lead to you finishing on top. Be like David and seek for God’s wisdom on your situation. It will always work!
