    Love it.

    Let's remember that while David did sin and was a man of war, he knew how to break his heart before God. God did serve His justice upon David by not allowing him the joy of building temple and he allowed David to suffer greatly due to choices. David was not perfect and made many mistakes yet God still chose him. Just as He does with us today, but remember to not misuse His grace toward us.

    Asking God to slap the faces of our enemies so hard as to break their teeth seems like a strange thing to ask Him to do. I cannot imagine Jesus doing that to someone.

    It was David's sin that caused such pain, he thought he could hide it, he knew in his heart he couldn't, he loved God with all his heart soul and might and nor can we. Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

    David triumphed over many fears by yrusting the. Lord - he is like me- my fears overwhelm me- i want to run - then I remember my hope is in yhe Lord who made heaven earth- He sees everything going on one day will call us home- no mpre fear or anxiety-

    What I love about this particular Biblical Scripture is despite of his sins he still prayed , rejoiced in God . This shows us that no matter what we do we all have a High Priest ( JESUS ) who loves us very much and forgives no matter what we’ve done. His love is eternal and he said David he called him by name David I love thee come and sup with me and belong to me as my dear friend. David prayed.
