The Confrontation

‭‭2 Samuel 18:1-2 KJV‬‬ [1] And David numbered the people that were with him, and set captains of thousands and captains of hundreds over them. [2] And David sent forth a third part of the people under the hand of Joab, and a third part under the hand of Abishai the son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother, and a third part under the hand of Ittai the Gittite. And the king said unto the people, I will surely go forth with you myself also.

Time passed. Every throne is fought for. If you become careless, the enemy can raise even members of your household to knock you out of the throne of God( Mat.10:36 ). Until you’re tired of running, the enemy will not take you serious. So David did no continue to run from Absalom into the desert. The Bible is quiet about the return. Let me explain. It must have been a single moment of self discovery. ” What am I doing out of Zion? ” The Lion in the King must have returned. The people who gathered to him by now were enormous. It reminds you of the start of David’s career, when Saul pursued him. In v4. when the people refused to allow the King join the fighting ranks, the word says quietly, the King leaned by the gate. So they even got to the city gate. This was not good news to Absalom. By the end of the day Absalom was dead. God fought for David. Read the details in v.8 the wood devoured more people than the battle. God fought for David. Every throne is fought for, but its important on whose side you’re. Is God on your side?
