Good morning everyone. As I woke this morning, a question popped into my spirit so I’m going to ask it of you; what are we going to do with the day we are being presented with? Here’s a thought; what if you spent this day just being grateful? Try it and you will find that your life will be miraculously changed. I was lead to scripture and I will share my revelation with you but first we will pray.

Today’s Prayer

Father, so much of our suffering is brought about by our being out of harmony with Your will, but there is a quantity of suffering which is necessary for our spiritual growth. Oh Lord, remind us that even then, You are in the midst of it, sufficient for our strength, and that the beauty of the morning can be appreciated because of the darkness of the night. Sorrow is ever making channels for joy! Let us learn to praise You always. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Preparation for Greatness

He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. – 2 Samuel 22:35.

The bible tells us that David was a mighty warrior, and God described him as a man after His own heart. God took David through a training ground that could be considered cruel and unusual punishment by people of our day and time. God chose him at a young age to be the next king, yet King Saul, who was ruling at that time rejected him and hunted him down. David was a fugitive for many years. He had uprisings in his own family, and he had relationship problems. He had a life of extreme ups and downs. He certainly didn’t have a life free of problems; he made mistakes. He was human like all of us, yet he learned from his mistakes and repented when he failed. This was David’s training ground; it made the man that God could use. Without these hardships, it is doubtful David would have accomplished what he did.

Toward the end of David’s life, he recounted his relationship with God. It is a sermon on God’s ways of dealing with a servant leader.

”It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me Your shield of victory; You stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn” (2 Samuel 22:33-37).

God was David’s source for everything. God gave him the ability to achieve the many extraordinary things in his life. It was a lifelong training ground that moved him from one plateau to another, often dropping into a canyon of despair and hopelessness from time to time. These are God’s ways. They drive us deeper and deeper into the heart of Him who has prepared a way for us.
This leads me back to the question of the day and the answer. Every day of our lives, God is molding us for His purpose. Let God take you to the heights or depths He desires for you. He never promised smooth sailing during the trip, but He did promise to be the captain and companion along the way.

Quote of the Day

Pentecost gave me the key to the Scriptures. It has kept my feet in all the slippery places of all sorts of criticism. The things that are stumbling blocks to so many are stepping stones to me. The inexplicable becomes plain when we recognize the presence and law of the Spirit. It balances scholarship, and gives discernment beyond all human learning. Indeed, learning without the Holy Spirit blinds men to the realities of divine truth. The man who thinks he can know the
Word of God by mere intellectual study is greatly deceived. Spiritual truth is spiritually discerned.
