Bold in our BROKENNESS // Chronological Bible Reading

Today’s Reading: 2nd Samuel 17:15-19:30, Psalm 3, 63

As we journeyed together and observed this disagreement between father and son, you couldn’t help but hate the thought of father and son going at each other’s throat. You can feel David’s desire for reconciliation.

When Absalom was killed, there was no way David could rejoice, even with the war being over.

His son was dead.
His family had fallen apart.
His sin had brought so much pain.

David cried out in BROKENNESS.

It was in his broken state he called out to God and God began restoring David to the man he once was. A man after God’s own heart.

In his brokenness he was made STRONG.

David regained his resolve to lead his country and leave a worthwhile legacy. He crushed other revolts, killed other giants, restored Israel. -John Maxwell

It was in his brokenness he matured to a new level of leadership.
He was made bold in his brokenness.

When I am at my weakest, He makes me strong.
-2nd Corinthians 12:10 (The Voice)

The same is true for us…today or tomorrow. Brokenness is painful, but through it we are made stronger.
