As I read through 2nd Samuel and see how much David goes through and how he responds, it helps me, to get me out of the way. So many times, in our walk we will get stung by believers and nonbelievers. I don’t know how many times I have felt like quitting. But I must look up and realize who I am serving. I think that is where David is in 2nd Samuel 8. He puts his hand to the plow and begins to have victory over victory. We have the victory in Jesus; Romans 8:31-39, but that don’t mean the battles over. Know God through His word and you will be victorious in the warfare also. Jesus responded to Satan by the word of God! How important is it to know God’s word?
