Good Morning Warrior!
(2 Samuel 23)
“A Word of Wisdom to the Warrior!”
Text: 2 Samuel 23:3
“The God of Israel said,
The Rock of Israel spoke to me:
‘He who rules over men must be just,
Ruling in the fear of God.”
“A Word of Wisdom to the Warrior,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
In the last days of King David’s life God speaks to him this Word of Wisdom from the lessons David has learned in his Life With God; and God passes these Lessons Learned on to you and I as “A Word of Wisdom to the Warrior:
“He who rules over men must be just,
Ruling in the fear of God.”
We learn in verse 1 how David learned these Lessons:
First; he never forgot his humble beginnings as the youngest son of a farmer named Jesse - this kept him “small in his own eyes.”
Second; he allowed God to raise him up to the place God had for him; he didn’t Make it happen in his own strength.
Third; he rested Confidently in the anointing “God gave to him,” because he Knew God Himself gave it to him forever!
And Lastly; the Shepherd’s Heart he grew with God all along the way, made him the Sweet Psalmist of Israel, and the greatest king, among men, Israel ever had.
David was a “Shepherd King,” who paved the way for our Perfect Shepherd and Commander Jesus Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, and Son of David.
The first verse of the New Testament states:
“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:”(Matt.1:1).
Listen up Warrior! We too are “learning these lessons” as we walk with God in our Journey through life.
His map and “Lesson Outline,” is simple: “Follow Me and I’ll Make You To Become Just Like Me.” Jesus said it this way: “Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matt.4:19)
The Required Classes are:
First - DO Justly
Second - LOVE Mercy and
Third - WALK Humbly with your God.
God shows you and I these “required classes” in Micah 6:8
“He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?”
We walk with and imitate our Commander Jesus Christ the Perfect Model of a Servant King , and we “attend our daily classes” with Our Helper Holy Spirit the Perfect Teacher; and we Grow a Shepherd’s Heart so we can be a Servant Leader who rules over others with Justice, and with the fear of God.
This is also our prayer for those on earth who rule over us; that they will rule with Justice in the fear of God.
This Is God’s Standard Of Conduct For The Ruler; and Every Ruler Will Be Held Accountable To This Standard!
A Word of Wisdom to the Warrior is that “Classes Are Always In Session,” and Our Perfect Model and Perfect Teacher are Always with you and I to help us learn and practice and teach others what we are Learning:
To Do Justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly With Our God! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side
