We all remember young David when he brought down the mighty Goliath, right?
Do you remember how David grew and became the most lauded man in his nation?
David was a KING! The highest position in the land. Yet, he was humbled when exiled, an outcast from his on people, from God.
Or so he thought.
We are going to start out with Psalm 42:5,6 learning about why David is so depressed and heartbroken.
David was taken from his home.
Why? Because Saul was hunting him and sent others to hunt David.
David was depressed because exiled from his city, he could no longer worship in the temple. And, during the God-given holidays, the Jewish nation was remembering all that God had done for them, but David could not be there.
So, we will study David's exile. His depression, and the facts that led up to his exile. We all know that David was a man that was of God's heart. However, David did some things that didn't please God. We will discover what they were and what God did about that.
This is the perfect time of year to study David's actions and God's reactions. This is a time of Thanksgiving. And a time to be grateful. How did David come to be grateful for being an outcast?
We shall find out. Stick around and read more.
Have a Blessed Day!
