MORNING DEW: 12-11-2018
TOPIC: DAVID, THE MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 17:38-40
Saul put his garments on David, set a bronze helmet on his head, and put armor on him. David strapped Saul’s sword over his garments and tried to walk, but he was not used to the armor. David told Saul, “I can’t walk in these because I’m not used to them,” and then took them off. He took his staff in his hand and chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook and put them in the pouch in his shepherd’s bag. He approached the Philistine with his sling in his hand.
KING SAUL PUT HIS GARMENTS ON DAVID
King Saul, after interviewing David, put his garments on him. He also set a bronze helmet on his head, and put armour on him.
It was a personal garment for King Saul. It was not for David. David wanted to be original.
Originality is the best option. Trying to be who you are without faking is the best way of becoming successful in life. When you are trying to be who you are not is deception, and all liars will enter the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8).
David wanted to be different. If indeed those garments could protect one in battle, or could make one win a battle, why didn’t Saul send them himself to fight Goliath?
David took his staff and took five stones, put them in the pouch in his shepherd’s bag. He was ready to go.
When you have the Supreme God as your Father you don’t fear of giants, you don’t fear of lions, you don’t fear of intimidations.
When you have God you have everything. David didn’t want to join the group that believe that God cannot do certain things. David wanted to prove to the people that God was with them. God being silent doesn’t mean He is absent.
Stop trying to be someone else and be yourself.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, help me to be original, in Jesus’ Name!
