“And David realized that the Lord had confirmed him as king over Israel and had blessed his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.” (2 Samuel 5:12).

Could this possibly have been an “Aha!” moment in King David’s life? Earlier in the chapter we find that David is once again anointed as king and has captured the city of Jerusalem, which as we know, becomes the political and spiritual center of Israel. David has grown in power and wealth recognized by all. According to Webster’s Dictionary, an “Aha!” moment is defined as a “moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension.”

Perhaps David finds himself looking out over his kingdom and begins to reflect upon all that God has done in his lifetime. Scenes of his past replay in his mind as David examines the evidence not of his own ability, but of God’s promises, goodness, and divine purpose for his life. His revelation-it is God who has established him and has provided constant guidance and favor upon his life-all of it for the sake of His people.

If I’m being honest and completely human, I sometimes let life keep me from looking for the evidence of God’s divine operation in my life (both past and present). Life can often feel like it’s “for the sake of” many things right? There’s the never-ending to-do lists, laundry to finish, bills to pay, meals to prepare…

I cherish the moments of revelation and insight that come when I sit with My Father and His Word, allowing the Holy Spirit to help me see with spiritual eyes the evidence- “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

My friend, may you see the evidence of God’s goodness and purposes today and always. -Lisa

All throughout my history

Your faithfulness has walked beside me

The winter storms made way for spring

In every season, from where I’m standing I see the evidence of Your goodness

All over my life, all over my life

I see Your promises in fulfillment

All over my life, all over my life

(Josh Baldwin – Evidence)
