Absalom has stolen the kingship from David and David is being run out of town. David has a mix of fickle and faithful people in his life. In 2 Samuel 15, Absalom conspired for a rebellion, but people like Zadok, Abiathar, and Ittai pledged their support for David. However, one of David's counselors, Ahithophel, joined Absalom. We must remember that God is sovereign and He works all things out for His purpose. His plans will unfold and our job is to seek Him no matter the circumstances.
