2 Samuel 2:3

Following God means full obedience, right away, done with a happy heart.   #daybydaylw   Interested in learning more about becoming a devoted follower of Christ? Go to!   ~~~   2 Samuel 2:3 “And David brought up his men who were with him, everyone in his household, and the lived in the towns of Hebron.” What is it we see David do in response to his prayer to God for direction, and then God answers with instruction and command? We see full obedience. The text tells us that David uproots his family, and uproots his fighting men with all of their family as well. David was leaving no trace of himself back in Ziklag. This was not an investigative trip, or an exploratory trip to see how things might shake out. No. God said Hebron was the place, and that is what David needed to hear in order to move with confidence. And move with confidence he did. Pack up the bags! Tie up the tents! All of it! We are moving. What a challenge for us when we know what GOd’s word commands us to do—to live in obedience. How would you define biblical obedience? The definition my wife and I gave our kids was, “Full obedience…Right Away…with a Happy Heart.”
