Faithfulness and Calling
So, it’s very important to pay attention some things about David:
Characteristics of David:
Brave, skillful, warrior, knows how to express himself. The Lord was with him. (1 Samuel 16:14)
No one need be discouraged because of Goliath. I will fight against him myself.
Here we see how David’s determination influenced the people.
I can not raise my hand against him, because he is the anointed of the Lord.
David did not take revenge or pay attention to his men, he did the right thing even in the middle of suggestions.
Although the Lord is with us and society can see this reality, these points of David can guide us in our position as people of royalty (1 Peter 2: 9) in the Kingdom of God. It is not only the anointing of God or the position we have in society.
We see very important people in the world, in positions of government or owners of large companies that work with corruption and abuse and still have “success” in the eyes of the people. David was prepared where nobody saw him, with the sheep and fighting against bears and lions, before fighting against Goliath. It is not what we see, but the motivation of the heart and the call of God on each person.
In the kingdom of God, we are courageous people, with His presence, with gifts and talents, with all the ability to administer, govern well, using our power for the good of others. Jesus, who is our example, did the same thing: He was faithful. He administered the business of His father. He had confidence and trust in Him. He was determined. He fulfilled the work for which He was called. He honored the Father and the Holy Spirit. He showed forgiveness on the cross. He had a life of adoration and prayer.
- What is the motivation of your heart in your life?
- How do you relate with those who desire to do evil to you?
- How is your stewardship of the things that God has already put in your hands: work, family, finances, marriage, body, etc.?
- Are you understanding the preparation that God is doing right now in your life?
- How is your intimacy with God in comparison with Jesus?
Let’s meditate with Him, asking these questions and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the areas that should be changed, giving them to Him.
Father, I thank You for the conviction and revelation that You will bring through these questions. Increase in us courage to walk with You, and through the changes that will come. I am willing to be taught and transformed to walk in the position and call that You already spoke over my life, in Jesus´ name. Amen.
After having an encounter with the Holy Spirit through a dream in April 2016, Dayanna experienced the heart of the Father, leading her to walk in the revelation of sonship in radical way. Because of this, she started a project called “Royalty – You have a Purpose & Destiny” in stewardship of this truth. Dayis Jimenez
