II Samuel 5:12 And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel’s sake.
David realizes, perceives, understands that it is God that has make him king over Israel. He realizes that his success was given to him by God for God’s purposes. God was putting David there not for David but for Israel.
That is a big lesson for me as I consider how God blesses me but not for me but for Him. He wants my life and ministry to be used to further His purposes.
It sure changes the perspective I have. It is not about me. It is about Him. It is not for me but for others.
