April 30, II Samuel 2:1-7
A few items to note here, David first seeks out God before doing anything else. Then it reads David and his two wives,. In reality David has three wives, his first wife Michal, Saul's daughter is still alive and never formally divorced. We'll look more closely at her character a little later. Again I stress it never works out well having more than one wife. David speaks blessings on the people of Jabesh-Gilead, there is power in blessings and cursings. We should speak blessings often on our loved ones and to those who are obedient. It's not a name it-claim it theology, God is and always will be sovereign but it is important to both recognize and bless those who deserve it.
