2 Samuel 15
v. 6 … So Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.
v. 21 But Ittai answered the king, “As the Lord lives, and as my lord the king lives, wherever my lord the king shall be, whether for death or for life, there also will your servant be.”
2 Samuel 16
v. 4 … “Behold, all that belonged to Mephibosheth is now yours.”
v. 10 “If he is cursing because the Lord has said to him, ‘Curse David,’ who then shall say, ‘Why have you done so?”
– David acknowledges that God has the authority over everything that happens in life and submits to His authority.
Many are the sorrow of the wicked,
But steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.
