Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1Samuel 18:1- 19:7)
“Walking in the Reality of God’s Presence.”
Text: 1Samuel 18:14
“And David behaved wisely in all his ways, and the LORD was with him.”
“Walking in the Reality of God’s Presence,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. We can have the Knowledge of God’s Presence in our mind - yet not have the Experience of God’s Presence in our Life! Experience surpasses Knowledge because Experience becomes our Reality and Confidence! The Warrior’s Reality is God’s Presence is with them at all times! When we walk this way we will live intentionally; according to our values and beliefs as an ambassador of Christ.
This is how King David lived! The Lord was with him because David’s heart was with the Lord. Whether in obscurity as a shepherd boy or publicly as a Giant killer; David Walked In The Reality Of God’s Presence. He lived intentionally, according to his values and beliefs. In some of his last words King David defined the criteria for a Servant Leader:
“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.” (2Samuel 23:3).
Listen up Warrior! We are each expected to rule over our heart first before we can rule over others. We rule ourself and others in “the fear of God,” when we Walk In The Reality Of God’s Presence. He sees, feels, hears, and talks with us.
Whether people loved him or hated him David “behaved wisely in all his ways, and the Lord was with him!”
Here’s some ways we can develop this “Reality:”
Ask your Helper, Holy Spirit to help you:
Commit yourself to “Live” Your Faith in Jesus Christ; and stop comparing yourself with others.
Set goals, make time for God every day; Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with Him.
Stay Focused on this, and learn from other godly leaders. Failures are a necessary element in the learning process so don’t get discouraged - repent and learn like David did!
And trust and obey Holy Spirit as He works in you both to Will and to Do of His good pleasure.(Phil.2:13).
Walking In The Reality of God’s Presence will radically change our life and the lives of others we lead! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
