One day Jesse said to David, “Take this basket of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread, and carry them quickly to your brothers. And
give these ten cuts of cheese to their captain. See how your brothers
are getting along, and bring back a report on how they are doing.”
1 Samuel 17:11-13
David was obedient to what his
father told him to do, which lead him to a victory that began his
journey to King. What if we were obedient to our Father, Jesus when he
tells us to move, go, or stand still? What if we didn't allow our own
frustrations and selfish agendas to keep us from being obedient? I know
that sometimes when God gives us instruction we may not understand it's
purpose, but that's when we must rely on our faith in God and strength
in the Lord to be obedient. Your faith will give you peace and your
strength in the Lord will give you endurance to finish the journey.
Romans 8:28 says"for all things work together for the good of them who
love God and are called according to His purpose." We must remember, we
have no control over our lives, so why not put your trust in the ONE who
has control over everything and has already promised us, through His
Word that all things will work for our good. So no matter what lets
choose to relentlessly be obedient to our Father.
Many of us are familiar with the story of David and
Goliath however the life of David and how the Lord used him, is a
testament to who Jesus is. Where's David, is a call for believers to
share the gospel of the Lord with others, to strengthen each other
through the word, and encourage each other through testimony.
