2 Samuel 2:8-9

The legitimacy of a ministry will not remove its opposition.   #daybydaylw   Interested in learning more about becoming a devoted follower of Christ? Go to!   ~~~   The last section that we are intended to see is a puppet king who is pushed to the throne by Abner. Abner is pulling the strings over Saul’s son, Ish-bosheth. Notice the verbs used in 2 Samuel 2:8 and 9—Abner took Ish-bosheth…brought him Mahanaim…made him king.” And here is what we are to see—The legitimacy of your ministry does not eliminate enemies. And as long as God’s kingdom marches along on this earth, there will be enemies. There will be a fight to be had. There will be kings to dethrone. It reminds me of something Jesus said—“In this world you will have trouble…” This Jesus, who made it his habit to spend early mornings in deep prayer, making sure He did all the Father asked of Him, this Jesus, who started a revolution with 12 blue collar guys, who was hated because he spoke truth to the liars and extended grace to the hopeless, THIS JESUS said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart because I have overcome the world.”
