David was simply walking in his gifts as warrior and fearless leader. But this angered his mentor, Saul, so that Saul sought to kill David. He pursued him, plotted against him, sent men to spy on him. Simply because David was being who God called him to be.
Saul represents the enemy of our souls in this story. He is infuriated when we simply walk in our God-given gifts. The enemy sees the strength and power within you. He sees your potential. He knows you have authority over him. So he plots against you, threatens you, lies to you.
But we do what David did when Saul threaten him. We worship. We declare our unfailing trust in our unfailing God. We rest assured that in Him we are victorious. In Him we are loved and accepted. In Him we have refuge.
Whatever the enemy tries to throw your way today remember, he is afraid of you. So worship from a place of victory. The battle is rigged. You win!
“You are my source of strength! I will wait for you! For God is my refuge. The God who loves me will help me; God will enable me to triumph over my enemies. As for me, I will sing about your strength; I will praise your loyal love in the morning. For you are my refuge and my place of shelter when I face trouble. You are my source of strength! I will sing praises to you! For God is my refuge, the God who loves me.”
Psalms 59:9-10, 16-17 NET
