A tale of three kings is an in depth story about King David, King Absalom, and King Saul. G. Edwards has mastered the authorship of styles and techniques of leadership. He describes how the process they went through to become king, the brokenness they experienced and the familiar question was raised about what type of king you are or will become.
At least once in everyone’s lifespan will experience a form or pain and brokenness. Whether from loss of family member, something that happened in childhood, or parents’ divorce.

He has grown in faith and endurance when his sheep are attacked and protects them by strongly throwing a rock and killing the bear. This experience with little things allowed God to trust him with a giant later in his life and he was also able to defeat the mighty giant with the Lords help.
When David becomes famous he refused to enjoy himself, but gives glory to God. He later is placed in the palace with the abusive and angry King. During this time David seeked God in any area he could. David remained a student of God, and remained teachable. Saul was a broken and hurt man that was willing to do the same to the others. This lesson was ordered by God to teach David about brokenness and a humble attitude.
With the Lord beside him, David managed to never get angry or acted out because of how Saul was treating him. He turned his cheek well more than once, and was hit in more than one way. Because of his mercy and grace David learned from this and the Lord blessed him with that Kingdom. He had earned the right to be a king and the Lord saw him worthy and he was given favor. This leadership is a prime example of how God wants us to react to get the most out of every situation, good or bad. It is important to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and obey quickly. There is always a reason or a benefit behind why God has us going through

    Suffering is about learning about who we are a person and how do we wish to become. It fills a person with wisdom and humility. Without suffering we would not be able to appreciate all that we have been given by God. We would not be able to thrive as humans as we would not be able to distinguish between the rights and wrongs if we did not experience suffering. It will create a world where people care and love each other and no one wishes anyone else to suffer like they may have, suffering also makes a man sympathetic towards the ones who are suffering, Finally, suffering should not be seen as a punishment but as a blessing by God, without suffering we would not be able to appreciate all that is given to us.…

    Evil Vs Free Will Essay

    Suffering is not inflicted on humanity as a form of punishment but as a lesson on which we must learn to over come and understand. Free will was given to humanity by God, who also has delivered the punishment of death. While some may argue that this is an act of a cruel God who does not love humans. I believe that everything that God does for us is to help us become better, and not only learn from suffering, and pain, but to also learn how to love and achieve happiness within ourselves, and with God. Suffering brings us closer to God, because we crave guidance and assistance from our heavenly father, as his children we need God to hear our prayers in our time of need and guide us through a path that over comes all Evil.…

    Abraham was put to the test because God wanted to see if he still loved him. Sometimes the things of the world can take our attention away from the love that we have for God, but he wants us to stay obedient and follow the path of righteousness so we don’t get distracted. The covenant that was made was between God and Abraham, and this verse repeats the words you (God) and Me. I felt that the spirit of God led me to choose this verse to emphasise that our relationship with God is between just him and me. His plans to prosper me are because he loves me.…

    I can stand on the Word of God when I run into potholes on my way to God's best because God will keep His promises. I have only to believe and know that He is the only true and living God, and to remember to speak words of life and not death. My greatest enemy, at times, is my mouth but the devil doesn't want me to know this. He is always setting up barriers and strongholds. This is the reason that I must remember that God has all power and my knowledge becomes much in the Master's…

    Although it may not be an easy task as our faith is tested repetitively, I can only move forward in his name and understand that these are tests. I believe that God does bless with not only material things, but more so things that money can’t buy. Like love, peace, and prosperity. I live out my beliefs to become closer to the Lord in spirit.…

    Since we are fallen, we cannot take the penalty for our sins, so God sent His Son for us. Since Jesus was perfect, He was able to bear our punishment, and although He did not have to, He still did it for us because it was the will of the Father and because He loves us. Once we realize that all people are made in the image of God, it should not be a problem for us to value life and treat others better, as image-bearers of God and brothers and sisters in Christ. Even for those who are not saved, we can at least be good role models to help them see that we are different and what they are doing is wrong. In conclusion, God created us perfectly, and it is our fault that we are like this.…

    We move along a path daily to become more and more like Christ and He provides the perfect example. “This High Priest of ours [Jesus] understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrew 4:15). Well, we are human, we will sin but the deeper meaning here is that you can have compassion, you can identify with people’s suffering but in all of that you can still be an example of a better way to get through this thing called life. Jesus is the Way. Point others to Jesus in what you say and what you do, even when you make the wrong choice.…

    I really did not appreciate this devotional. But, one the bright side, most of the devotional we a good experience that allowed me to ponder on God and my relationship with God. I think that the biggest reinforcement that I received from a lot of the devotionals was that we need to keep our attention on God and He will do all of the hard work for us. We really only have to give God our heart and he will direct our paths. We don’t have to worry about doing good works because if we are focused on god he will have good works that he needs us to do.…
