Still Leading

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Kings 1:28-53

David is struggling physically in his old age, and because of this, he hasn't kept a watchful eye on what's going on around him. This opens the door for Adonijah to underhandedly gather supporters and take the throne. But David isn't done as a king or a leader. While he may be physically disabled, his mind is still sharp. So when the situation with Adonijah is brought to his attention, he looks to God and then draws on his vast leadership experience to immediately put into play an impressive plan that completely derails all Adonijah and his supporters have done.

In this crisis situation, David keeps his eyes on God which allows him to wisely and confidently handle the situation. And as is his life-long habit, as soon as Solomon is on the throne, David addresses God, thanking Him for his blessing and protection.

How do you tend to respond when presented with a crisis situation? Is turning to God your first (default) reaction? Is it your habit to thank God as soon as He answers a prayer? Tami

Tami, I would love to say that I always respond in a calm and conflicted trust in the Lord with all of my crisis situation, that I turn to him first,and to thank God as soon as He answers my prayers.

May I continue to strive to be mindful and intentional to always bring my crisis situation to the Lord Jesus,may I remain calm and confidence in His helping me and to readily thank Him for answering prayers.

I need to improve.
