David often expressed the impact of his actions on his relationship with God. He acknowledges his failings and the division it caused with friends, family and enemies.
In the midst of his penitent suffering, David says of his enemies, “They oppose me, because I follow what is good.”
David exemplifies a leader with self-awareness and reliance upon God.
Godly leaders face many challenges. They often fear people leaving, speaking against them, and facing opposition. Remember to follow what is good, even in the midst of the most difficult challenges.
David concludes, God will not be far away. He is salvation and deliverance.
