“So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?” And the Lord said to David, “Go up, for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into your hand.”” 2 Samuel 5: 19
Let the celebration resound! David has been made king over Judah and Israel. God’s promise to David has been fulfilled and David is walking out his divine destiny. All should be well, right? Well, David’s enemies, the Philistines (Remember Goliath?), heard about his coronation and decided to make war against him.
But, what did David do? Did the new king try to assert his intelligence or prove his capability? No. David asked God what to do and God gave him a strategy, and a promise of victory!
David learned what we must learn: everything is not a piece of cake after we say “yes” to God.
“Many times we say “yes Lord” without thinking or considering the consequences. But, as we begin to walk out our yes we realize that it is not as easy as it sounded, or as spiritual as we thought it would be. Then comes the grumbling and the murmuring and the complaining… — The Shift
David did not run from his troubles, and neither should you! He went straight to the One who made him King. Today, you can run straight to God who has anointed and appointed you and ask Him what to do. Grumbling and complaining will make things harder for you. When you say yes to God, He has everything you need to make it. Tap into His infinite resources and wisdom. He is with you!
