Sunday, April 28

As for me, I trust in your loyal love; my heart will rejoice in your acts of salvation.—Ps. 13:5.


King David was the victim of many injustices. Although anointed by Jehovah at an early age to be the future king of Israel, David had to wait some 15 years before he was made king over his own tribe. (2 Sam. 2:3, 4) During part of this time, unfaithful King Saul pursued David, seeking to kill him. As a result, David had to live as a fugitive, at times in a foreign country and at other times in caves in the wilderness. Even when Saul was eventually killed in battle, David still had to wait about seven more years before he was given the kingship over the whole nation of Israel. (2 Sam. 5:4, 5) Why was David willing to wait patiently? He trusted in Jehovah’s loyal love. He joyfully looked forward to deliverance, and he reflected on how Jehovah had dealt rewardingly with him. (Ps. 13:6) Yes, David felt that the wait would be worth it. w17.08 6 ¶14-15
