Then the Philistines once again made a raid on the valley. Therefore David inquired again of God, and God said to him, “You shall not go up after them; circle around them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall go out to battle, for God has gone out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” So David did as God commanded him, and they drove back the army of the Philistines from Gibeon as far as Gezer. I Chronicles 14:13-16
Here’s the lesson: 1. When faced with great opposition the first thing I should do is ask God what my next move should be. 2. I should listen and follow instruction carefully. 3. Give God the credit because the victory I experience belongs to Him.
Until I learn these very important steps, I will not walk in the victory God wants for me. I must rely on Him, always. When I begin thinking I can do it alone, I will end up lonely. When I am dependent on Him, I remain hidden in him, surrounded by His glory and victory is assured.
Whatever I face, I will face it with You, Lord. I am never alone, You are always with me according to Your Word. You said that if I seek You I will find you so I’m seeking You with all my heart, soul and mind.
Your Words were, “Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open to you.” It’s You who desire to give good gifts to me and I desire to ask for and receive them. Every good and perfect gift comes from You, Lord, so I give You thanks for direction, for wisdom and guidance.
Today is going to be the best day ever because You will be glorified in all I do, all I say, all I type. Victory belongs to the King and I stand with Him.
