Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Brookshire / Pattison, TX continues continues speaking about David. David had grown weary waiting for the promise made to him by the prophet Samuel that he would be king. Even in all his adversity, David did not try to promote himself or lift himself up, he did not seek promotion. We need to let God be the one who raises us up. In Psalm 75:5 it says, "Do not lift up your horn on high, do not speak with a stiff neck. For exaltation comes neither from the East, nor from the West, nor from the South, but God is the judge, He puts down one and he exalts another." Notice that the North is not in that verse. In the scripture, the North represents trials. Your promotion comes from the trials, from you learning how to walk with God through contradictions. David was going through a contradiction. He had opportuties to promote himself, but he would not do it, he waited on the Lord. Psalm 32:8 says, "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with my eye." You need to obey God out of your heart. God wants you to strengthen yourself in Him.
