These are my Answers to BSF Bible Study questions for People of the Promised Land Lesson 17 Day 2


2 Samuel 5:1-16

3. At Hebron, the leaders of all twelve tribes of Israel made David king.

They said,

  • We are your relatives.
  • Even while Saul was king, you successfully led our military. The Message says, “you were the one who really ran the country.”
  • God said to you, “You shall be the shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall be prince over Israel.” (From 2 Samuel 5:2 ESV)

God sent Samuel to anoint David as king many years before men crowned him king.  It’s believed he was between 12 to 16 years of age. (1 Samuel 16:11-13)

The spirit of God fell on him strongly and remained on him throughout the long wait.

God’s spirit empowered David with courage and strength to face and kill a giant, lead many successful battles, and survive Saul’s relentless murder attempts.

4. David’s attributes

In Acts 13:22, Paul writes this, “After removing Saul, he [God] made David their king. He testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do’” (ESV)

  • Humble – He made a covenant with the leaders.
  • David had faith in God
  • Faithful to God and to Saul
  • Obedient
  • Fearless
  • Respected by both kingdoms of Israel and King Hiram of Tyre
  • Blessed by God

5.  David remembered his calling.

The Spirit of God remained on him.

He sought God for wisdom, direction, strength, comfort, forgiveness, and protection.

My purpose – glorify God

Just last week, I began reading a book called A Million Little Ways.* The following quote sums it up:

“I don’t believe there is one great thing I was made to do in this world. I believe there is one great God I was made to glorify. And there will be many ways, even a million little ways, I will declare his glory with my life.” A Million Little Ways by Emily P Freeman
