When man curses you for following God (David is in the right and Shimei is in the wrong here by the way) then you will be blessed by God. Once again David entrusts himself to God’s care vs. taking matters into his own hands. Jesus did the same ("not my will but yours be done") and we must learn to do the same, otherwise you are going to be a very unhappy person!
When you have a high view of the sovereignty of God then you will have a very real view of your sin and of your own inadequacy, and you entrust yourself to the mercy of God that much more!
In Prayer Today:
Praise God that He is in control when you are not.
