There are a lot of Kingdom principles that we can extract from the life of David. One of the most prominent things is that David knew where his strength came from. When David was faced with problems, he inquired of the Lord what his next step should be (2 Samuel 5:19). That was his strength. 

But even though we read that David understood that God was the one who gave the breakthrough against his enemies (2 Samuel 5:20), sin came in. David started to measure his strength based on the number of men in his armies (2 Samuel 24:1-9), and pride started to shift his focus away from God. Too often, we place our trust in our own abilities and resources. That is why the Word tells us to “guard [our] hearts above all else, for everything [we] do flows from it” (Proverbs 4:23). 

David’s heart struck him, and he realized that he had sinned (2 Samuel 24:10). He humbly repents before God and admits his own foolishness. Whenever we realize that our trust is not in God, but in ourselves, we must come, like David, before God with a posture of humility. 

 “As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). Even if the world is falling apart around us, we must be a witness and point to our Provider, declaring, “Our trust is in Him!”
