Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 13 April 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: The God-First Mentality As Displayed By David
TOPIC: The God-First Mentality As Displayed By David (Seeds Of Destiny 13 April 2023)
SCRIPTURE: As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? Psalm 42:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One secret behind the massive destiny of David was his God-First mentality.
David was one great Scriptural personality worthy of emulation. God Himself testified of David as a man after His Heart. David was a king, priest, prophet, psalmist, fighter, military general, instrumentalist, demon-caster, Goliath killer, etc.
Now, one secret behind the massive destiny of David was his God-First mentality.
David was the reference king of Israel. Jesus Christ came out from the root of David. David, without a doubt, was the most important king Israel ever had.
Now, look at the testimony of David’s addiction to God in Psalm 42:2:
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
Psalm 63:1-2 also tells us about David’s heart for God,
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
David was no doubt, a man of unparalleled addiction to God.
There is yet another Scripture that reveals the devotion and dedication of David to God:
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4
David was a man whose heart and soul panted after the living God; a man who sought God early; a man whose sole desire in life was to dwell in the House of the Lord to behold the beauty of the LORD. No wonder till today, David is celebrated both on earth and also in heaven. God put him up because he put God first.
Remember this: One secret behind the massive destiny of David was his God-First mentality.
- Make up your mind to put God first in all you do.
- Refuse to let your passion to die.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to have and maintain an undying passion for You. Help me not to be spiritually lukewarm Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
