The Adversity Training

1 Samuel 16:14-23

The Story
David's life was not all about mundane and the routine.
  • He had encounters with lion and bear (1 Sam 17:34-37).
  • He had killed a giant named Goliath (1 Sam 17:40-51).
  • He had been ignored (1 Sam 16:11), criticized (1 Sam 17:28), and underestimated (1 Sam 17:33, 43-44).
  • He had been hated and pursued by King Saul (1 Sam 18:8-12, 19:9-10).
The LORD God always trains His people by making them walk through some hard places before He use them in greater fashion in public.

Remember David on the lonely hills of Judea – God used the tool of adversity to teach David about the power, provision, and providence of God.
