Verses 24 through 37 list the tribes of soldiers who came to support David in Hebron. The amazing thing is that first, they came ready to fight if necessary. But, above all that, they had fully agreed to make David king -- they were, along with everyone else in Israel, of the same mind. How strong was that in making David able to do what God wanted him to do?
These are serious words, and words that I personally need to ponder and consider. How does that play out in the world I live in?
Father, I thank You for the times when determination to do what You have asked me do has helped me to walk the way that You desired. I am open to You and Your ways. AMEN
Father, I will not forget all of Your kindnesses. You always do what is right and fair. You show mercy and have great love. Thank You. Psalm 103
38 All these fighting men were ready to go to war. They came to Hebron fully agreed to make David king of all Israel. All the other Israelites also agreed to make David king. 39 They spent three days there with David, eating and drinking, because their relatives had prepared food for them. 40 Also, their neighbors came from as far away as Issachar, Zebulun, and Naphtali, bringing food on donkeys, camels, mules, and oxen. They brought much flour, fig cakes, raisins, wine, oil, cows, and sheep, because the people of Israel were very happy. (1 Chronicles 12:38-40 NCV)
