God takes a long time preparing each of us to be what he knows we can become.
Maybe you find yourself in the 10 year exile.
First, know that God is with you thru it. God never left David and God protected him wherever he went.
Second, know that all that we experience now is preparing us for what God is doing.
Third, it is temporary.
Mark Lowry’s favorite verse “It came to pass”
We don’t know what God is planning for us but we do know that we will soon know what it is.
It took 10 years for David to develop into the leader that Israel need.
Who knows what God has for you?
