Today you should read: 2 Samuel 17

The key to today’s chapter is found in verse 14: “And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel.” For the LORD had ordained to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, so that the LORD might bring harm upon Absalom.” (ESV) What we are basically seeing is that Absalom and his goons are trying to figure out a way to overthrow the reign of David so that Absalom, his son, could be king.

The remarkable thing is how we see the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of humans on full display here. Even in the midst of wickedness, God is protecting his servant David from the throes of evil.

How do you think God could be at work even in the silence? It’s often in moments of hopelessness and despair that God is working silently, even when it doesn’t feel like it. If you’re walking through a challenging season, take a few moments and pause, reflecting on the different ways that God could be at work when it might not feel like it. Ask Him to build your faith in the silence through His Word!

  1. Amen Graham! When we are waiting on God, and He is silent, it often results in a deeper prayer life and more time in His word. Patience has never been my strength and God has taught me so much in the silence.
