Remembering Who You Are, Who God Is, and The Promise
34 David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, 35 I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. 36 Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” 1 Samuel 17:34-37
When you’re walking with the Lord and chasing after the desires of your heart with Him, you will come across some who think you can’t do it. David sure did. After David was questioned by his brother, Saul, and probably everyone who saw him for wanting to fight Goliath, he remained faithful to the destiny on his life: that he is to be a King and conqueror for the Israelites.
Remembering who you are is essential for overcoming the lies of the enemy. Remembering who God is and His power and authority is essential for trusting Him with the desires of your heart. And remembering the promise and the prophetic words spoken over your life is essential for aligning your heart to God’s will.
Hearing God through the desires of your heart is a constant journey, and it’s one that the enemy will regularly attempt to interrupt. God is going to call you to things that look out of your reach, and things that to the world, look impossible. But when you know who you are, and you know Who you belong to, your response in the face of doubt is “The Lord who was faithful to do it before, will be faithful to do it again.”
Today’s Prayer: Lord, show me what You think of me. Remind me of the desires You’ve placed on my heart and of your never-ending faithfulness.
Today’s Challenge: Write a declaration, specific to this season, to declare every day until you see your promise fulfilled. Include scriptures that touch on your identity, God’s character, and the prophetic confirmations you’ve received.
