TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17
Scripture: II Samuel 12:18,19
David went into a significant season of fasting and prayer for the child. When the child was born, it died. The child was born and then it became very ill and David sought the Lord for healing. David got up when the season was over. The death of the child marked the end of this phase of God’s Judicial Hand in his life. Now it was time for some mercy and a sign of restoration. Future judicial manifestations almost always come after a mercy manifestation. David committed adultery but he also killed Uriah the Hittite, Bathsheba’s husband. When this initial season was over, David accepted God’s Judicial Hand and when it was done, David made the transition back into life where the mercy he needed he received and then demonstrated it to others.
