This morning we get a look at David’s last words and see what it is to speak by the Spirit. We also see what it means to go to battle in the power of the Spirit. It would be a foolish thing to go to battle without soldiers and weapons. But when David decided to he just had to know how many men he had who could go to battle, he was showing a lack of faith in God’s ability to fight for His people. And a plague was in the making. David’s repentance and costly sacrifice give us an example to follow and a glimpse into the future of God’s people. Poet warriors who speak and wage war in the power of the Spirit of Truth – that is our calling.
