Notes from the Journey with David – 60

60. As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees (2 Samuel 5:24).
Hard to imagine the intensity of this moment–waiting for the trees to rustle before rushing into battle. David and his men are poised and ready, anticipating a sound that signals God’s presence–a sound! Of course, God’s advice is to wait for His signal or the sign He will give to Israel’s king. I wonder how many western leaders would wait? How easy is it for us, in our desire to achieve, to wait for God to signal us into battle? Like David, each of us must learn to wait for that sign. It’s a lesson even the Biblical leaders had to learn again and again.
