KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 12:9 “Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon”.
David’s life reveals to us the two main aspects of life.
1. Total victory
2. Total trouble.
A life that is committed to God and always pleases God will bring to you, Total victory (means overcoming every opposition or difficulty that comes at you) and avoid what brings total trouble (being helpless and defeated by the opposition and difficulties that come at you.). Reading through 2nd Samuel 12 we see that the prophet Nathan brought God’s word to David. He exposed his sin unto him. David did not attempt to defend himself as Saul did. 2nd Samuel 12:13 “And David said unto Nathan I have sinned against the Lord, and Nathan said unto David. The Lord also had put away the sin, thou shalt not die “. The Lord added the following to what He said earlier”. However, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto you shall surely die. ( 2nd Samuel 12:14). Who are the enemies of God that blaspheme the name of God? Satan and his host of devils.
When the children of God walk uprightly God praises them to the devil. God is excited when His children are faithful unto Him. (Job 1:8). When the child of God faulters and fail, Satan also scorns God and blasphemes. Don’t allow the devil to blaspheme the name of God because of your mistakes. Prophet Nathan listed certain punishments that will come on David and his house. All the judgements that was to come on David were the legal attack of Satan that God could do nothing about. The Lord permitted the enemies of his because, they had the legal right. He said the sword will never leave his house. David took Bathsheba in the closet but his wives will be raped openly. All these were done by his own children. Do you think God caused these things? No, it was the right of the enemies of God to attack. Dear child of God give no occasion for the enemies of God to attack you…
Our Lord Jesus, on the cross bore the full judgement and punishment of God for every sin now and the future. Galatians 3:13 says he Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us, for it is written cursed is everyone that is hanged on a tree”. Whenever Satan claims the right to assault you, please turn to Galatians 3:13 and refuse his onslaught against your life. This does not give license to sin. Sin may weaken your resolve to lay hold on God’s provision in Christ.
Don’t give place to sin. Don’t allow Satan to torment you on any grounds. Lay claim on the finished work of our Lord Jesus.
My Lord Jesus was made a curse for me and has blotted out every ordinance that opposed me and nailed it to the cross, there is therefore now, no condemnation for me, because I am in Christ and I walk in the Spirit.
Romans 8:1 ” There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.
Colossians 2:14 ” Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;”
