The hand of God. It’s impossible to see. Or is it? In 2 Samuel 17:15-29, we are given a wonderful lesson on the ever-present reality of God’s hand in the lives of men. He is always there, whether we can see Him or not. He is always at work, whether we realize it or not. And David was about to experience, yet again, the sovereign will of God, orchestrating events in such a way, that His power could be sensed even though His presence remained unseen. Sometimes, the best way to recognize the hand of God is through hindsight. It is after the fact that we get the clearest view of His handiwork. In the midst of the storm and in the heat of the battle, it can sometimes feel as if God is nowhere to be found. But when given the opportunity to look back, we can see His unmistakable fingerprints on all that has happened. The question isn’t whether God is at work, but only how.
