2 Samuel 5:24 NLT: When you hear a sound like marching feet in the tops of the poplar trees, be on the alert! That will be the signal that the Lord is moving ahead of you to strike down the Philistine army.”
My dear friend in Christ, David was a very successful King during his reign over Israel. It is not news that he was greatly assisted by God Almighty otherwise he wouldn’t have been that successful. Looking at his life, you could see that he never went to war without consulting God. Also, he always recognize the fact that he was incapable of succeeding without help from God. It is one thing to be religious about seeking God’s help, it is another thing to actually acknowledge that you cannot do it on your own.
Many people seek God’s direction while having a second option on the table. David was never like that. Furthermore, when you succeed, do you immediately acknowledge that it was God who did it or do you quickly announce to others how smart you are? Look at what David said when he won the battle in
2 Samuel 5:20 “So David went to Baal-perazim and defeated the Philistines there. “The Lord did it!” David exclaimed. “He burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So he named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who bursts through”). “
I don’t know the battles of life that you are currently contending with. It could be marriage crises, financial crisis, business ideas, academic or even career issues. Allow God to go ahead of you. Learn to wait for the signal to proceed from the lord. Do not be in a hurry. Don’t ever imagine that God is wasting your time. He told David to wait for the sign and know that He has gone ahead of him to hand over the enemies to him. God will go ahead of you in Jesus Name and hand over your enemies to you. Amen.
Declare to yourself loud: I will wait for the Lord’s signal.
1. Oh Lord my God, go ahead of me and deliver me from my enemies, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
2. Please add your personal intentions.
2 Samuel 5:17-25
