Notes from the Journey with David – 59

59. So David inquired of the Lord (2 Samuel 5:19).
The landscape had changed. David is no longer on the run from Saul and a friend of the Philistines. Now he is king in Israel and the Philistines present a major threat. It’s hard to be sure why the Philistines are mobilizing against him. Perhaps they intend to demonstrate their strength and hope for David to yield. But David inquires of the Lord–good plan. And God’s answer is to attack. It won’t be long before the Philistines are weakened to the point of never rising again. The work David started with Goliath will soon be complete.
