October 6, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- WHAT YOU ARE CHOSEN FOR AS A DANIEL – 1 Samuel 17:15-30
The way God works with His people is that when you meet what you are anointed for, something will be stirred up in your spirit. What is making people afraid must be stirring something in the chosen man.
When David came to the battlefield in 1 Samuel 17, everyone who heard Goliath was not ready for him. They were not prepared for Goliath though they were facing him. All the Israelites in the army of Saul including Saul were not chosen for Goliath. They were not ready for Goliath so they couldn’t handle him.
Although they carried weapons, every time they heard Goliath’s voice, they were scared. It struck terror in them and they pulled back, but here was David who came into the field bearing cheese and other provisions meant for his brothers. It was then that Goliath stood up to speak and David heard him. Something rose inside him – this is a sign that you are anointed for it. It may be a job, it may be an opportunity, an offer, or anything. Once you begin to see those signals, then you should begin to get ready. There is nothing as shameful and tragic as to meet your day and not be ready.
The brothers of David were not ready for Goliath because they were not chosen for Goliath, but David was prepared for him. All the preparations of David in fighting the lion and the bear met the purpose and he was ready for his day. Will you be ready for your day?
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to consistently walk in the accuracy of my preparation so as to be ready for my day in Jesus’ name.
