“Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: ‘I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have raised up a young man from among the people. I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him. My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him. The enemy will not get the better of him; the wicked will not oppress him. I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries. My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted. I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers. He will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.’ And I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth. I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail. I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure.”
It is clear as we read this that God knew David by name. He understood David’s heart and mind. He knew David’s enemies. He had the plans for David’s life laid down before his birth. Incredible!
And yet, God has the same for us. He knows our names, plans, talents, circumstances, even our friends and enemies. He wants to use it all for His glory. We get to be a part of His work.
There is nothing that is beyond His reach. There is no enemy stronger. He is our Rock and our Savior.
We come to You, Savior, and thank You first for the gift of salvation. We also thank You for the gift of Your plan for our lives. You are an amazing God.
