This is it. In this episode, we will bring the remarkable story of David’s life to a close. Like all men, David’s long life had a time limit attached to it by God. His days were ordained by God, with both a beginning and an end. And while David’s life was particularly spectacular and marked by incredible accomplishments, what truly set his life apart was his relationship with God. It is the one consistent theme that flows throughout. That, and David’s humanity. In 1 Kings 2:10-12, we will learn that David reigned for 40 years. That’s a long time at the top. But he had to go through a lot to get there and, even after he ascended to the throne, things weren’t always easy. But through it all, God was with him. As a boy tending his father’s sheep, David knew what it was like to have God beside him. And the same was true when he found himself running for his life and hiding in caves. God was consistently, faithfully at David’s side, teaching him, preparing him, disciplining him, and molding him into the king he had appointed him to be.
