Memo 1078: Accessible

We have been looking at what it will take for you to thrive on the throne God gives you as we study David's life as king. By way of reminder, your throne is whatever your life purpose leads you to do. As it leads you, you will then lead others because there's no one who can do what you do like you do and it will eventually attract people who recognize your abilities.

Memo 1077: Remarkable Grace

Have you ever wondered about God's grace? Ever done anything that you knew did not deserve God's grace, yet you received it nonetheless? In this week's study, we look at an expression of God's grace that is marvelous, breathtaking and inexplicable, reminding us all that God's ways are not our ways.

Memo 1076: God Is Watching

Memo 1075: It's Good To Be The King

Have you ever been around leaders who are impressed with themselves? Who have the attitude “I’m in charge and the rules don’t apply to me. I can do what I want, when I want”? Leadership power is one of the most intoxicating forces on earth, and David, even though he was a man after God’s heart, was not immune from its effects.

Memo 1074: A Way Of Life

Have you ever done good but it wasn't received and perhaps even misunderstood? Have you yearned for peace but find yourself in constant warfare? If you answered yes to either question, then once again you can learn from David's life in this week's lesson of how to sit on the throne God has for you. Let's get started.

Memo 1073: Lesson Learned

Have you ever been put into a difficult situation for what seems to be no reason? Have you ever suffered at the hands of a poor or ill-equipped leader? Before David became king, he would have answered yes to both questions, but this week let's look at the reason God put David in those situations. He put him there to teach him how not to lead.

Memo 1072: More Big

God has put the drive for 'more' in all of creation. We see it described in the life and reign of David. David set out to expand his kingdom and God honored his efforts with success and fame.

Memo 1070: The Bigger Picture

After David had rest from his enemies, he decided to build God a place that would house His presence on earth. However, the Lord spoke to Nathan, the prophet, and adjusted David's plans:

1068: More Than Prayer

When David fought his last battles with the Philistines, we see a pattern of how he did business, so to speak, that brought him success and good fortune. What did he do? For that, you will have to read on, but it's worth the time, for it will reveal something that you can use as you...

Memo 1067: Two Strikes, You're Out!

Does it seem like life is difficult that even a little progress is the result of tremendous effort, only to require more effort for the next step? Does it seem like you're constantly engaged in a battle? If so, then read on for our hero David could relate to your situation having been in the same one himself.

Memo 1066: The Blind and Lame

David was finally the king but he did not take time to celebrate. He got busy making history by securing a place in his territory that still plays an important role in the world:

Memo 1065: Finally

Does it seem like you have been waiting forever, or at least longer than you ever expected, for God to fulfill His promise to you? Are you about to give up or at least move on? If so, then this week's Memo will help you, for finally, after at least a 20-year wait...

Memo1064: No Help Needed

When David was waiting for his throne, a young man came to report Saul's death, indicating that he was the one Screen Shot 2022-08-14 at 7.46.46 AMwho had done the killing at Saul's request. The young man was lying, hoping to gain favor with David. David would have none of it, however...

Memo 1063: It's Good to Be the King

As we read about David's continuing struggle to ascend to his throne and his war with the house of Saul, his biographer inserted a few verses to let the reader know about the growth of David's family during his seven years in Hebron:

Memo 1062: Earthen Vessels

Last week, we saw that David was anointed king of the tribe of Judah, and that there was constant warfare between his house and that of Saul's. Over time, David's house became stronger while Saul's weaker. Those years of his ascension to the throne were tumultuous times, with some history to which we pay little attention. However, let's look at...

Memo 1061: Game of Thrones

It's time to start a new series while I go back and edit the previous one into a book. The last series was 'Training for Reigning' and this one is titled 'Life on the Throne." As we ended last week, David has been made king over his tribe of Judah, another step closer to the fulfillment of God's promise to him that he would...

Memo 1060: A Second Anointing

This is the last in our series we began last year that I named "Training for Reigning." Next week, we will pick up where we leave off this week to start another series on the life and reign of David. To finish up this thread, let's look at David's second anointing when he became king of Judah:

Memo 1059: No Help Wanted

Finally, after years of hostility toward David and bizarre behavior, King Saul met his end on the battlefield, along with some of his family: Now the Philistines fought against Israel; the Israelites fled before them, and many fell dead on Mount Gilboa. The Philistines were in hot pursuit of Saul and his sons, and they killed his...

Memo 1058: Sharing is Caring

Last week, we read about David's camp being raided and his family being taken captive. When he sought the Lord about pursuing the marauders, he got the assurance he would be successful—and he was. He recaptured everything and everyone and the saying "all's well that ends well" could apply. However...

Memo 1057: Asking On The Go

Guidance should never be a problem for those who know the Lord. God's a great communicator and isn't playing cat-and-mouse or hide-and-seek with His people. If He wants us to do His will, and of course He does, then He must reveal what that will is in clear terms. Of course, He must...

Memo 1056: The Spirit of Pharaoh

Last week, we looked at a chapter in David's life that wasn't his finest hour. He had taken refuge among the Philistines, although if our father-in-law and king were trying to kill us, perhaps we would have done the same thing. At any rate, this week we see that...

Memo 1055: The Power of a Thought

As we continue to read about David, we come upon a season of his life that was not his best version of himself. David despaired of God's continuing help and, being tired of fleeing for his life while he also protected his people, consequently fled to King Achish in Gath, the same king before whom he had acted like a...
