David’s Armor 10-28-19

Good day and praise the Lord for another wonderful day on the path that leads to him. We take it one step at a time. This message today is for all those that want to give others the job of praying for them so that they can go on about what they are doing. You can’t just rely on someone else’s angel; it’s time for you to get one of your own.

Today’s Prayer

Father, You are so good. Your plans are bigger than we could ever imagine. You always honor Your promises. You know all about parenting and prodigal children, so you well know what parents go through. Your love knows no bounds, and You always look at our hearts, not necessarily our appearance (although we know we must abstain from “the appearance of evil”). Because You love us, You will discipline us and Your Holy Spirit will convict our hearts and speak to our minds to keep us in line. That’s how we know we’re Your children. We know that You can change us and make us more like Jesus, if we will agree and not fight against Your will. We are willing Lord. Mold us and make us into those precious children and Christian lights that You would have us be. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray and give thanks, Amen.

Let’s eat.

David’s Armor

In the book of first Samuel we find the story of David, the young shepherd boy. He heard the challenge from the Philistines to send someone to fight Goliath. No one volunteered to fight except David. King Saul reluctantly agreed and offered David his armor. David put on the weighty equipment, but quickly figured out he couldn’t fight in this heavy armor.

David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. “I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off. – 1 Samuel 17:39

God equips each of us in such a way that is unique to our strengths and abilities. David was trained as a shepherd to use another weapon. For David, it was a slingshot. David showed great maturity in realizing he could not be effective with Saul’s armor.

What are the gifts and talents God has given to you?

Have you ever tried to accomplish a task with tools you were not trained to use?

God allows each of us to develop skills that are unique to our life. He will not call you to use someone else’s tools.

However, this is only half of the equation. These talents must be mixed with faith. Talent alone is not enough. Faith alone is not enough. It is only when the two are combined that God’s power is released and manifested in the physical realm.

Mix your unique gifts with faith today; you will be surprised at the power of God that will be manifested. If you are not familiar with this particular story, go to the bible and read 1 Samuel 17, it will clarify things for you.

Quote of the Day

Here is the great secret of success. Work with all your might; but trust not in the least in your work. Pray with all your might for the blessing of God; but work, at the same time, with all diligence, with all patience, with all perseverance. Pray then, and work. Work and pray. And still again pray, and then work. And so on all the days of your life. The result will surely be, abundant blessing. Whether you see much fruit or little fruit, such kind of service will be blessed…
