Back on Track

Read 1 Kings 1:1–53

“Everyone makes mistakes.” But can a person fail so dramatically that his or her life is ruined?

Bathsheba may have thought so. One night with David changed everything. Her husband was dead. An illegitimate son was conceived and then died. Later, Solomon was born, and David promised him the throne. But, Adonijah claimed to be king. Bathsheba and Solomon could be executed as threats to the throne. It looked like David was going to forsake her and Solomon. But David followed through on his promise, and Solomon became king.

“I will surely carry out this very day what I swore to you by the Lord, the God of Israel: Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne in my place” (1 Kings 1:30).

Perhaps it seems your life has been ruined by mistakes you have made. God will be true to His promise to forgive. What’s more, He will place your life back on track.

Prayer for Today: Forgive me, and place my life back on track.

Quicklook: 1 Kings 1:28–40

  • TV Versions of End Times Don't Line Up with the Biblical View
