The Complications

‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭3:7‭-‬8‬ ‭KJV‬‬ [7] And Saul had a concubine, whose name was Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah: and Ish-bosheth said to Abner, Wherefore hast thou gone in unto my father’s concubine? [8] Then was Abner very wroth for the words of Ish-bosheth, and said, Am I a dog’s head, which against Judah do shew kindness this day unto the house of Saul thy father, to his brethren, and to his friends, and have not delivered thee into the hand of David, that thou chargest me to day with a fault concerning this woman?

God will change your story. He always does. The simple reason the enemy has not gotten the upper hand is because of what God is about to do for you. David was satisfied in being a palmist in the bush, taking care of the sheep when God sent for him. Now it was Gods act to make him King of Israel. For seven and a half years, it looked as if the enemy won, then there came the complication of Saul’s concubine. That transferred Abner’s loyalty to David. God works on the hearts of men, so does the enemy. If God has spoken a word to you, He will touch peoples heart to help bring it to reality. Just imagine the day messengers arrive David’s home to announce: We came from Abner, captain of the host of Israel. David did not need to fight for it. Ish-bosheth would think of Rizpah for the rest of his life. He lost the throne fighting for a concubine he was probably not interested in. Savannah Giblo says that in stories, these complications could be, ” … people, places, things, or events, and they can be negative or positive” . In this, it was positive for David. May you experience Gods transforming actions in your conditions. What fighting could not achieve, God did it with love.
