Enemies haunted David throughout his life. They wanted nothing more than for David to be rid of and forgotten forever. (Ps. 109:15)
However, David sought the Lord. In all things, he desired God to be glorified. And although the enemy's goal was to destroy, God had mightier plans. The enemy desired David's name never to be remembered, God trampled over the enemies and his kingship lasted.
Despite the evil plot against David, he is remembered even today. Countless people learn of David and his life all over the world. He has never been forgotten, thanks to our great God!
David by Michelangelo in The Gallery of the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence
I know the same enemy attacks me daily. Pride...fear...selfishness...they all fight for control in my life. But I must believe that God, and only God, will help me overcome in mighty ways. He will trample...and triumph!
"But I will give repeated thanks to the Lord, praising him to everyone. For he stands beside the needy, ready to save them from those who condemn them."
