God Is Trustworthy
1 Kings 1:29–30: Many Troubles
As David makes his oath to Bathsheba, he recalls the Lord’s past faithfulness, His constancy in extricating David from his troubles. This gives the king confidence that the Lord will help him again.
As we face new and burgeoning difficulties, we are encouraged, and our faith is reinforced, when we pause and remember the Lord’s former goodness to us. “The Lord will also be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble” (Psalm 9:9).
