A reminder for today
David continued to succeed in everything he did, for the LORD was with him. (1 Samuel 18:14)
I guess success is something all of us seek and eventually wants to see in our lives, whether it is at work or at home or maybe it is in exercise. No matter what area in your live you dedicate time to, you want to see results. David continued to humbly follow God and God was with him, and this made David very successful and very popular.
My dear friend, I believe that without God we are struggling in vein. When God is part of you and everything you do is to glorify Him, success is automatically the result. When we follow God and seek His ways we cannot go wrong. It is a natural stumbling block to desire more and more. This is where greed and lust and all those tools that the enemy so easily uses to cause our downfall comes into play and with that comes arrogance and self-idolising.
Saul’s own greed drove him to jealousy and hatred, but David’s humble love for God made him successful. When God is for us, who can be against us. When God moves in you there are no limits to what you are capable of. When God is with you, you can do anything. My dad always said that if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. Today I know that if you put your mind to it and your faith in God you can accomplish anything. There is nothing that God cannot do through you and you must not forget that.
When Saul realized that the LORD was with David and how much his daughter Michal loved him, Saul became even more afraid of him, and he remained David's enemy for the rest of his life. Every time the commanders of the Philistines attacked, David was more successful against them than all the rest of Saul's officers. So David's name became very famous. (Verse 28 – 30)
God is with you, my dear friend and that makes you unstoppable. Don’t give up and don’t lose heart. Keep your eyes on God and faithfully and patiently trust Him.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
