David therefore pleaded with God for the child, and David fasted and went in and lay all night on the ground. 2 Samuel 12:16
You must learn to leave situations in God's hands when you cannot tell the outcome of an issue.
Sometimes you can get caught in situations where it appears as if you are in a no-win situation and no matter what happens, you will end up with a bad result.
In such cases, you must learn to release the situation to the Lord and rest in Him. King David dealt with such a situation when the prophet Nathan confronted him with the sin of adultery and the murder of his bodyguard — Uriah.
The judgment against David was that the consequence of his action would end in the death of the baby to be born out of the adulterous relationship.
David did not know what to do - no matter the outcome; it was going to be bad for him.
He prayed and fasted and just lay before the Lord.
He did not stand in prayer to claim any promise of God.
He just lay down in surrender, trusting the Lord to handle it in the best way possible.
Later when David heard that the baby was dead, he accepted the outcome and moved on with his life.
He trusted God with the outcome, and accepted the verdict without questioning God or getting bitter.
Like David, we must learn to accept God's judgment in every situation.
He is a loving and a righteous Father. All His ways are perfect. Even His judgments are inspired by His unfailing love.
Prayer: I thank You Father, that You are a righteous God. All Your ways are perfect. May You have Your way in me.
Scriptural Reading: 2 Samuel 12:1-23
