October 8, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- DIVINE CLUES FOR A DANIEL – 1 Samuel 17:55 – 18:5
God always gets you ready and gives you a clue. Divine success always leaves a clue. Watch the people that God arranges you to fellowship around regularly. When people leave an impression on you, it is a sign to you because God takes you to meet people that you are going to hang around later on, or gets you to a level that you are still going to occupy ahead of time just to get a taste and a feel. People that are going to enter into ministry already have a sense of that. People that are going to be in the wealth side of the kingdom have an idea of that.
For example, David was going to be king, but God had supernaturally arranged that through the battle with Goliath, Saul would notice him, and Saul brought him to stay with him. So as a 17-year old boy, he was already in the palace; but he was not there to be carried away with all the things in the palace, he was there to learn how not to behave when he becomes the king.
When you get around where you are going to stay permanently, your greatest enemy is the spirit of familiarity. Once that spirit assaults you, you will miss the purpose of God bringing you close, which is to cultivate a sense of awe and deep-seated respect. Once you begin to have wrong attitudes around sacred things, you are going to lose divine access. Remember, as a Daniel, you are God’s choice and you must never lose sight of who you are.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to correctly identify the divine clues You send my way for my destiny journey and deliver me from every spirit of familiarity in Jesus’ name.
