“And David was prospering in all his ways for the LORD was with him.” 1 Samuel 18:14
I have been reading a book by Eric Metaxas about seven men who made a great impact during their lifetime. The first man that starts off his book is George Washington. It was inspiring to read about the strength and determination that he had. It was especially inspiring to read about when he had the opportunity to become king at the beginning of this great nation, but he refused. What incredible strength to be able to say no to such power.
Power can be really good and it can also be really bad. David, was a boy that knew where true power came from. When he faced Goliath, he recognized that the enemy’s power came from the weapons in their hands, the numbers of men on their side, and the size of their muscles. David also realized that his power came from the Lord. David knew that his God was with him and therefore he beat the enemy with a sling and a stone.
When it comes to talking to people about Jesus, it is so easy to forget that the Lord is with you. And yet, this is the most important thing to remember. He is with you when you are with Him! When you are afraid to talk to someone about Jesus; remember, He is with you! When you feel like you don’t know what to say; remember, He is with you! When you try and get rejected; remember, He is with you!
Knowing that Jesus is with you makes all the difference when you talk to people about Him!
My encouragement for us this week: 1. Say no to being king of your life. 2. Talk to people about King Jesus. 3. Remember, He is with you when you are with Him!
Have a Great Week!
If you are struggling to know whether He is with you, spend some time thinking about these couple scriptures and practice what they say: James 4:8 & 1 John 1:9.
