Ephesians 6:14a, 17
Stand firm.......... Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

2 Samuel 11:1
1: In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king's men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.

I posted this devotion about 14 months ago but it has been on my heart recently so I thought I would share it again. It is so true!

Of course this is the story of King David and Bathsheba. We know how David saw Bathsheba bathing and he desired her even though she was married. David had sex with Bathsheba and she became pregnant so David had her husband, Uriah, killed by ordering him placed where the fighting was the most fierce during battle. This way it would be plausible that Uriah was the father of Bathsheba's baby. As Christians we look at all of the acts that David committed and think how terrible they were and we condemn them. However, before any of these destructive sins occurred there was one thing King David could have changed that would have prevented all this trouble.

2 Samuel 11:1 says that in the spring, kings were to go off to war. In that time this was what was normal. Kings did not battle in the winter, they waited for good weather so their troops would not be prevented from being able to function due to the climate. When nations went to war the place of the king was leading his army into battle. David's trouble started because he was out of place, he was somewhere he didn't belong. Rather than leading his army into battle like he was supposed to be doing, David was up on his roof checking out his neighbor's wife.

Think of how much trouble could be avoided in our lives if we would simply be where we are supposed to be, doing what we are supposed to be doing, when we are supposed to be doing it. When we don't take care of our responsibilities and keep our noses out of places they don't belong, there is a very good chance it means you are doing something you shouldn't be. BE WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE & DO WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO and you will you not find yourself trying to figure out how to get out of trouble, in a place you had no business being in the first place.
