II Samuel 15:25 And the king said unto Zadok, Carry back the ark of God into the city: if I shall find favour in the eyes of the LORD, he will bring me again, and shew me both it, and his habitation:
David realized that the blessings of God depended on the favor of God. He was being run out of his kingdom. He willing accepted all that was happening as being from God’s hand. He was determined to wait on God to see what His plans were for David’s life.
I often find it too hard to wait on God. I want things done my way in my timing. Today, we need to learn that God is at work in our lives. We need to obey and honor Him. We need to know that He is in charge and willingly submit to His plan for our lives today!
Jesus is God
John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Here is another verse that makes it clear that the Bible and Jesus both state that Jesus is and was God. He said to the Pharisees that He was or He existed before Abraham. Here He was in human flesh less than 40 years old and He was before Abraham was! That is quite the claim. But He stated fact. He is God.
Not only that He uses the term that God used for Himself when He told Moses His name. I am. Jesus on purpose used the term that God had used. Every Jew there knew exactly what He was saying. Jesus was claiming to be God.
Why will we not accept that He claimed to be God except for the fact that we don’t want to acknowledge Him as who He is?
