SURRENDER

David’s Loss of a Child – 2 Samuel 12:16-24

“David begged God to spare the child. He went without food and lay all night on the bare ground. The leaders of the nation pleaded with him to get up and eat with them, but he refused. Then on the seventh day the baby died. David’s advisers were afraid to tell him. ‘He was so broken up about the baby being sick,’ they said. ‘What will he do to himself when we tell him the child is dead?’ But when David saw them whispering, he realized what had happened. ‘Is the baby dead?’ he asked. ‘Yes,’ they replied.” 2 Sam. 12:16-19

STEPS OF SURRENDER

  1. 1. ACCEPT WHAT CANNOT BE CHANGED

“David said, ‘I fasted and wept while the child was alive, for I thought perhaps the Lord would be gracious and let the child live. But why should I fast when he is dead? Can I bring him back again?’” 2 Sam. 12:22-23

  1. 2. REMEMBER IT’S NOT THE END OF THE STORY

“I will go to him one day, but he cannot return to me.” 2 Sam. 12:23b

  1. 3. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF

“Then David got up from the ground, washed himself, put on lotions, and changed his clothes.” 2 Sam. 12:20a

  1. 4. REFOCUS ON GOD THROUGH WORSHIP

“Then he went to the Tabernacle and worshiped the Lord.” 2 Sam. 12:20b

“I tried to understand all this, but it was too hard for me to see until I went to the Temple of God. Then I understood…” Psalm 73:16-17

  1. 5. DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE

“After that, he returned to the palace and ate.” 2 Sam. 12:20c

  1. 6. KEEP ON LOVING EVEN IN YOUR PAIN

“Then David comforted Bathsheba, his wife, and slept with her. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon.” 2 Sam. 12:24

“We know what real love is because Christ gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16
