Stronger and Stronger

2 Samuel 3:1

1 Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but

David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and


Whosoever believes that strength, wealth, wisdom, maturity, resources and a host of other desirable attainments is an overnight process (absent from struggle) possesses hopes, dreams and ambitions that the men of God of old did not experience: For these men often “waxed stronger and stronger” while contending for a long time; And perhaps there is no better example of this than that of King David. While one could begin easily enough with Saul’s pursuit of David in his youth, even when David would be king at Hebron (over the house of Judah) at age 30, he would not be king over all Isreal until age 37 (after reigning for 7 years and 6 months over Judah). Though Saul had been dead for some time, David would still need to contend with Saul’s house until God would bring about what was promised. And while David contended, fought and struggled, God was causing him to wax stronger and stronger, while his enemies waxed weaker and weaker:

[And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.] KJV Deut. 7:22

    These words are beneficial for spiritual growth. Hopefully many will see them, and when they do, it would be considerate to comment.
