In life we experience both public victories and personal failures. 2 Samuel tells of stories of David becoming king over Israel, when he commits adultery and the eventualities from his choices.
The book doesn’t end there. David humbled himself, repented of his sins, allowed God to rebuild him and continued his assignment. Below are some lessons to consider on the book of 2Samuel.
1) Some of the closest people to you that are sent to care and comfort you will unintentionally hurt you. In the midst of being crippled God will send an abundance of kindness your way.
Mephibosheth was dropped by his nurse while she was in a hurry to flee. King David restored all that was lost materially to Mephibosheth and gave him a place at his royal table.
2) Doesn’t matter how much we try to cover up our sins they will be exposed when we don’t surrender.
3) God will send someone to rebuke you in love and to wake you up! A real prophetic voice gives warnings.
4) Generational sins and curses can greatly affect a family.
5) God will send mercy even after a death from the consequences of sin.
