2 Samuel 5:6

No matter how many days pass, we can rest knowing that God’s promises bloom in time.   #daybydaylw   Interested in learning more about becoming a devoted follower of Christ? Go to!   ~~~   2 Samuel 5—God’s Promise Blooms Over Time In 2 Samuel 5:6, King David leads his men into Jerusalem to face down the Jebusites, using some crafty war strategy moves, after the Jebusites basically told the Israelites that their blind and lame were strong enough to conquer the toughest Israelite soldier. There are some very interesting and technical war games taking place, it seems, in this chapter, but from a broader perspective, something even greater is happening. You see, way back in Genesis 15:18-21, God made promise to Abraham that God would give to Abraham and his descendants a certain area of land. This episode we have in 2 Samuel 5 against the Jebusites, is the final piece of that promise being put into place. What we see in the big picture is that even though many items in life have an expiration date, God’s promises are not one of them. We are in the midst of the waiting on one of God’s promises right now, and that is to see and experience the fullness of God’s already established kingdom, and to see the king in all his glory…faith being made into sight! No matter how many days pass, we can rest in the reality that God’s promises bloom over time. They never spoil, they never fade.
