For a while, I’d been on the thought,
“Why did God say that David was the man after His own heart?”
“What made David earn that title?”
“How can I earn it too?!”
I found out:
1 Samuel 16:23.
David had confidence that God was with him. When he was brought before the king to play for him to relieve the king of the torment of the evil Spirit.
Whenever people put us in positions where we are needed. We must have confidence that God is with us and because of that alone, we can do whatever task is ahead of us.
1 Samuel 17:26.
David takes God very serious. He automatically disliked Goliath because he thought he one should be so arrogant as to challenge God. So he stood up for God.
In that same way, we must take God so serious as not to let anyone talk just anything about our Father, but have authority to stand up for God and his Word because we know that it never fails.
1 Samuel 17:45.
David always got God involved. Despite his anger at the words of the giant, David didn’t just let a mindless anger consume him, but anchored on the assurance that God was going to give His name the victory and chose to rely solely on God as his comeback to Goliath.
We must base all our weapons on the Word of God. God himself assures us that He cannot lie. So, in our haste to resist the enemies of the mind today, as stress, depression and anxiety, we must be equipped with God’s Word for us His children.
Always repeat to ourselves until it’s embedded in our minds, so that in faces of problems, we throw them against the enemy as our anchor.
