Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1Samuel 18:1 - 19:7)
“Behaving Wisely In All Our Ways”
Text: 1 Samuel 18:14
“And David behaved wisely in all his ways, and the LORD was with him.”
David was no longer a Shepherd boy taking care of the sheep for his father; now he was a national hero, a giant killer! In all this fame and the songs of praise the people sang about him, David was STILL a poor and lightly esteemed man “on his own eyes.” How can a man at the height of National honor and respect remain “small in his own eyes?”
By “behaving wisely in all his ways,” walking in the fear of God, as a man after God’s own heart, Growing A Shepherd’s Heart!
The Lord was With David and therefore the people saw the Love, the Wisdom, and the Peace of God in him.
Because David’s heart was right with God in the field with the sheep, it was right with
God when fame and popularity came; his Shepherd’s Heart was Still Growing!
Listen up Warrior! Our Fear of God Will Always Deliver You and I from the fear of man! The Warrior walks in the reality of who God Is and who you and I are.
Almighty God of Wonders, Perfect Love, All Powerful, All Present all the time everywhere at the same time; and He is Omniscient, He Knows All Knowledge. That’s Who Our Commander Jesus Christ Is! Ooooh Rah!
Who are you and I? You and I are dirt PLUS God. Yes, we walk in a “dirt suit,” everywhere all the time! Paul explained it this way:
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”(Gal.2:20).
In other words, Jesus Christ lives in this “Dirtbag”, and this life that you and I live as Warriors of God we live by Faith in the Son of God Who Loves You and I - and He Proved His Love For us by laying down His Life for us at the Cross as Our Good and Perfect Shepherd!(John 10:11).
It is Our Commander’s Shepherd’s Heart that is growing in you and I my fellow Warrior. As we meet with Him every morning for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner we are reminded of How Awesome and Thrilling He Is, and the fact that He knows you and I perfectly and Loves us unconditionally “Keeps You and I Small In Our Own Eyes!”
This is the Power and Wonder of A Shepherd’s Heart that causes you and I “To Behave Wisely In All Our Ways;” and Almighty God Is With You and I At All Times! Walk in this Truth Warrior! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
