The Power of Unity–2 Samuel 5 part 2

Once David was confirmed by the people as King, he was free to do what God called him to do—Unite Israel and reclaim the Land.  And so he did.  David began the task of clearing out the enemies of Israel that used the civil war to encroach and occupy the land.  When he achieved unity among his own people, the rest of the world could see he was unstoppable.

In our lives, the same is true.  We must clear our lives of the things that separate us from God.  Sin and discord within the church are some of the greatest barriers. Once we clear those barriers, we are free to do the task God has given us.  And as we do, we then are blessed and God is honored in our lives.  The bible is clear that we will be blessed when we are submitted and unified as a church.  If we carry bitterness, it will affect our ability to glorify God and complete the mission he has for us.  Please father check my heart and help me to  be single minded in honoring you

God Bless You

David then led his men to Jerusalem to fight against the Jebusites, the original inhabitants of the land who were living there. The Jebusites taunted David, saying, “You’ll never get in here! Even the blind and lame could keep you out!” For the Jebusites thought they were safe. But David captured the fortress of Zion, which is now called the City of David.

On the day of the attack, David said to his troops, “I hate those ‘lame’ and ‘blind’ Jebusites.[b] Whoever attacks them should strike by going into the city through the water tunnel.[c]” That is the origin of the saying, “The blind and the lame may not enter the house.”[d]

So David made the fortress his home, and he called it the City of David. He extended the city, starting at the supporting terraces[e] and working inward. 10 And David became more and more powerful, because the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies was with him.

11 Then King Hiram of Tyre sent messengers to David, along with cedar timber and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built David a palace. 12 And David realized that the Lord had confirmed him as king over Israel and had blessed his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.
