2 Samuel 11:27


2 Samuel 11:27 But the thing David had done displeased the Lord.


O Lord, I read 2 Samuel 11 and think to myself, “How could such a man as David fall from grace? How could he commit adultery and then commit murder to try to cover it up?” But the power of the sinful flesh is great, Lord! So may this be a warning to me. If it could happen to David, it can happen to me. Therefore, keep me vigilant and watchful. When sin creeps at my door, help me see what is happening so that I slam the door shut on the temptation that seeks to lead me astray. As you did with David, when I do sin lead, me to repent and trust in you for forgiveness. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
