“When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him.
After the time of mourning was over, David had her brought to his house,
and she became his wife, and bore him a son.
But the thing David had done displeased the Lord.’
2 Samuel 11:26, 27
We all know the story.
David slept with Bathsheba and to hide what he did, he got Uriah her husband killed.
That was a dark season in David’s life, if not THE darkest.
All seemed lost for him. The enemy appeared to have won against him but God stepped
in! He intervened in David’s hopeless situation.
He stepped in and pulled David out of the dark pit he was in.
When Nathan the prophet confronted David he was quick to confess his sin and received
forgiveness. But there was more…
“And David comforted Bathsheba his wife, and went in into her, and lay with her:
and she bare a son, called his name Solomon: and the Lord loved him.”
2 Samuel 12:24, 25
As I read that verse I had a thought. Why didn’t Solomon come from David’s other wife Abigail?
She was amazing and had less “baggage.”
But I believe God used Bathsheba because He wanted to make a statement.
God took the darkest and ugliest situation in David’s life and turned it around.
The enemy’s proof of victory was no more. The “souvenir” he kept with pride was now turned
into a testimony of God’s goodness, mercy and power.
He could no longer brag about the destruction he caused in David’s life because God redeemed
And God will do the same for you and me.
He will take the enemy’s victories and turn them around into powerful testimonies of His goodness,
mercy and power!
Even if you have messed up big time and it seems like the enemy has won, he hasn’t. The Lord
has the final say. When He steps in there is nothing the enemy can do to stop Him.
Forgiveness, mercy and grace are a prayer away. Call on the Lord for help when you are in trouble.
Call on Him when sin has made you stumble.
He wants to help you.
And with that I have come to the end of the post.
