2 Sam12:10 From this time on, your family will live by the sword because you have despised me by taking Uriah’s wife to be your own.


King David was a ministrel. An anointed one at that. He conducted deliverance for Saul without prayer. He only played music and the anointing of God upon his life sent demons away.

Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him( 1 Sam 16:23 NIV).

There is an aspect of King David’s story that is not commonly preached. It is common to hear about his conquests over Goliath and other enemies.

Most times, you’ll hear preachers talk about the sure mercies of David and how he was a man after God’s heart. All of these are in order and they’re worth telling.

However, there is another aspect of his life that put his family and unborn generation in trouble. The destructive seed of sexual immorality found expression in him. His unborn generation partook in the curse his actions attracted.

We are always quick to rebuke Solomon for marrying 700 wives and having 300 concubines(1Kings11:3) but he learnt it from David his father and he took it to the next level.

At the time of Absalom’s rebellion, it was recorded that David had 10 concubines (2Sam15:16) and in his conquests, he married more wives(2Sam3:2-5).

And unto David were sons born in Hebron: and his firstborn was Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; and his second, Chileab, of Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur; and the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital; and the sixth, Ithream, by Eglah David’s wife. These were born to David in Hebron (2 Samuel 3:2‭-‬5 KJV).

As people were hailing him for his conquests, he was marrying more wives. The devil saw that his third leg lacked control. He waited for an opportuned time to strike.

Satan arranged a day and time for him. He stood on the top of his house and beheld a beauty called Bathsheba. She was bathing. He did this sightseeing when kings were at war.

Unfortunately, he fell for Satan’s set up and he fell into adultery (2Sam11). It happened as planned. We don’t how long the enemy took to conceive and execute that plan but I’m sure it took him sometime after observing him over time.

The singular action of committing adultery made him progress into murder to cover up his heinous act. He attracted the curse of God upon his life and his family. In his lifetime, his own son played out a negative script because of the curse his actions attracted.

When he was about to die, those around him already knew that being around women revives him so they brought Abishag, a young girl to revive him(1Kings1&2).

That was how bad it was in the life of David. Thank God he had learnt his lessons, he didn’t touch her. Satan uses habits, attitudes and things people indulge in over time to rubbish them later.

A man can be anointed for conquest and territorial dominion yet what will eventually rubbish him may be growing with him unnoticed. Lord, what is that destructive seed growing with me as I journey to the top?

Beware of things you do that has no immediate repercussion. It is a set up for a total downfall at a time that matters most.

Stop nurturing what can kill you in the long run. The man God help is the man that is sincere to him in the place of prayer. If it is lust, take it to him now.

You and I need to be sincere with ourselves as we walk with God. We must get rid of those little foxes that spoils the vine. They may be little but they cause great harm.

PRAYER: Father, take me to your theatre room and operate upon my heart. Remove those destructive seeds I’m nurturing In Jesus name.
