Adonijah, David’s second son, proclaimed himself king; however, he was not God’s choice (1Kgs 1-2).
Then he said, “You know that the kingdom was mine, and all Israel had set their expectations on me, that I should reign. However, the kingdom has been turned over, and has become my brother’s; for it was his from the Lord.”
We need to let God pick the leader(s) even if they aren’t the most obvious choices to us.
