Have you ever heard the phrase, “When the going gets tough the tough get going?” If this phrase was used in Biblical times, it would have been said of David. After David brought Goliath down (literally), his popularity changed drastically. In I Samuel 18-26 we see that while in the shepherd’s field, David had his heart and mind set on, “I’m doing this for the Lord. I love the Lord, and my reward is from Him. He kept the heart and the mind of a shepherd even in a season of great success. This popularity, however, made Saul furious and jealous to the point where he tried to kill David. What was David’s response to his own King? To keep on following his orders!
Can you imagine doing something that glorified God, then after the fact knowing your boss wants you dead because it made you more popular than him? David was still willing to please Saul after knowing Saul wanted him dead. I think we can understand now why David was called, “A man after God’s own heart.” His excellence, his humility and his righteousness is what we all should be aiming for, a true servant whose only purpose was to please God. Other than Christ, I can’t think of any situation that could be tougher and no one tougher to go through it than David. This was a test, one that Satan wanted to use to bring David down, and one that the Lord wanted to use to build David up! Let’s enter this next week by allowing God use us to build His name up and to glorify Him.
