Recently I hit a wall…..and no matter what I did…I couldn’t GROW beyond where I was….It was so frustrating…even depressing….and you know what that wall was….My SELF ESTEEM.
God showed me he was calling me to this (hand higher in the air) …..but I only see myself being here( lower)…I couldn’t see myself doing what God was calling me to do…and because of that I couldn’t keep growing… ___
1 Samuel 16:12-13 ESV
…And the Lord said, “Arise, anoint him, for this is he.” Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers. And the Spirit of the Lord rushed upon David from that day forward…”
The Calling of God will never be realized in your life until you come into agreement with it.
1 Samuel 18:17-19 NIV “Saul said to David, “Here is my older daughter Merab. I will give her to you in marriage; only serve me bravely and fight the battles of the Lord.” …But David said to Saul, “Who am I, and what is my family or my clan in Israel, that I should become the king’s son-in-law?” So when the time came for Merab, Saul’s daughter, to be given to David, she was given in marriage to Adriel of Meholah.”
PRIDE is thinking you know more than God
What David’s FAITH could OBTAIN…..his IDENTITY could not CONTAIN – Dale Mast, “And David Perceived He was King”
Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV “For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
2 Samuel 5:11-12 NIV “Now Hiram king of Tyre sent envoys to David, along with cedar logs and carpenters and stonemasons, and they built a palace for David. Then David knew that the Lord had established him as king over Israel and had exalted his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.”
GODS CALLING ON your life is significant. .and nothing can hold YOU back from becoming everything God has called You. to be…..except for one of two things…
● .if YOU think YOU know more than God…or
● when you buy into the lies of the enemy spoken
