12/4(Wed): Resolving Conflicts
Scripture: “So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the LORD: and they anointed David king over Israel.” (2 Samuel 5:3) “ So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.” (1 Kings 12:16)
David was the king of Judah in Hebron, and later by a treaty he became the king of all Israel. Now in the reign of Rehoboam, the grandson of David, he ignored the will of people, and ten tribes were forced to go against him by declaring independence.
1. David became king of all Israel by a treaty. If his descendants comply with the treaty, the nation will remain united. Similarly, the conflicts in Hong Kong need to be resolved. Please pray for real compliance by all parties.
2. The people of Israel said, “What portion have we in David? Neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse.” This reflects an identity crisis. God’s original plan was a united Israel. Separation and independence are the nasty fruits of breaking the treaty. Hong Kong has an identity crisis too. For the conflicts to be resolved, please pray for a resolution of the identity crisis of the Hongkongers.
