Absalom’s CoupAbsalom coveted and was willing to use manipulation and might to get what he wanted.
Behind Absalom’s evil actions lies an evil heart that will not be content unless he possesses all that he craves.God’s Judgment
Absalom’s attempted coup is God fulfilling his word against King David.God’s Good Reign
Our day-to-day faith in God—and the gospel itself!—depends on God’s sovereign ability to reign in and through sin.
God calls us to loyal faith and faithfulness toward his anointed King.
David refuses to trust in the form of religion and instead trusts in God himself.
Real faith in God motivates faith-filled action and risk-taking. It motivates hard work.
Prayer should be our ongoing experience with God not a last resort when we have exhausted all other options.
Your heavenly Father knows what you need before you ask him; ask him with confidence!
