Daily Devotional (November-09-2022) THE SOURCE OF DAVID'S CONFIDENCE.
Scripture Reference: Psalms 27:1-2 - "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.”
This beautiful chapter of Psalm was written by David, a man who was either fighting, being attacked or being hunted and running away a large part of his life. He became king of Israel. Well, this was David's declaration and his testimony of confidence about God. David was a brave man; a man full of courage. He was not a quiet person.
David said the Lord was his light. It meant God’s presence caused him to see better, make fewer mistakes and not walk into traps and pits. David knew how to boast about God daily. He so knew the value of God's presence in his daily life.
My dear, value God’s presence. Avoid driving His Spirit away. Learn to boast about Jesus Christ like Apostle Paul;
"But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you."(2 Corinthians 10:13)
He also said the Lord was his salvation. It meant God being with him always resulted in him being saved (from things that could harm or kill him). God’s presence will save you from evil things. He so meditated and was conscious of God around him all the time.
He then said God was the strength of his life. It meant his life could not be crushed or torn by forces that destroy others. His ability to survive crises was because God was his strength. What is your source of confidence in this life? Is it in your family, house, marriage or in your money? My dear, build your confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ, and like David don't be silent about God's goodness but declare them to the world.
PRAYER - Thank you Heavenly Father, for you are my confidence and my courage. I don't walk in fear or shame about you, for indeed you are my light and my salvation. My trust is in you even from today in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
