I Chronicles 11:9 So David waxed greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was with him.
David was becoming stronger and stronger. His influence was spreading. People were realizing that he was a powerful king. From the outside or common appearance it might seem that David was accomplishing great things. The truth is that David is experiencing all of this earthly success because the Lord is with him. God is blessing. It might seem like David has found the fast track to success and should be hailed as an expert at the next conference but it was simply that God was with him.
Isn’t it true that the blessings that I enjoy should be attributed to the Lord. It is God with me that brings blessings and success! When good times come and things are going right it is easy to think that you are the cause. We forget God. That is a terrible mistake. It is that the Lord was with him.
