Today we will continue to see David operating in the flesh. Joab, David’s general, sends a messenger and tells David that Uriah and some of the men are dead. Normally this would cause grief in a person, but David’s response is, “The sword devours one as well as another”, a proverb of that day which means, Things happen. Yes, and these things happened at the command of David to kill his own men. When we begin to follow the works of the flesh there is no level we will not stoop to. Be careful because the devil never gives up and our flesh doesn’t either. Submit to God, resist the devil and he will leave. Be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and this won’t happen to you. Live Galatians 5: 22.
