As we read God’s Word, thoughts are given, ideas are brought out, and a pathway to our purpose removes any doubt about victory. In the previous passage, David prayed after he found out God gave him a purpose. That purpose was to build the temple and it drove David to carry out what God wanted.
Reading today in 2 Samuel 8, God gave David victories wherever he went as many nations with great influence in the Mediterranean world succumbed to David. He steamrolled his enemies like an NFL running back. He struck down his enemies like a great baseball pitcher striking out each batter. With the spoils of war, David dedicated silver, gold, and bronze to the Lord.
God gives a purpose to his servants in various ways as they work together for victory. What role will you play on His team? See yourself as God sees you; someone worth so much to the team that He sent His son to die on the cross for you.
Prayer gives us a chance to have an open exchange with God who believes in us and is interested in our future. He gives us a plan but it is up to us to fulfill our obligations towards the attainment of that plan.
This day with You Lord, help us to focus on Your plan for us. Help us to be organized towards reading Your Word, collecting ideas, and being affirmed by prayer like David was in building the temple. We each have a great purpose so help us follow Your way to fulfill that great destiny which overflows with blessings. We are not alone and we have available the power of the Holy Spirit to help carry out our purpose in our daily walk along the path. In Jesus name we pray … amen!
Amen! “God gives a purpose to his servants in various ways as they work together for victory. ”
So thankful for the victory.
Thankful for your encouraging and uplifting post. Reminds me of Jeremiah 29:11.
Thank you for your kind words. God’s blessings for a day filled with His presence!
