DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Yesterday’s Victory is Vital for Tomorrow’s Conquest
1 Sam. 17: 32-37
David was not just a shepherd but a passionate one. The experiences of David in the field with dangerous animals that constantly put his life and those of the sheep in danger perhaps made him to develop a personal relationship with God – he knew God as One who cares, who protects and delivers from danger, who provides, and as God who fights battles. He recalled his exploits in the field while tending the sheep. It’s vital to remember our past victories and successes because they help to build strong faith for tomorrow’s uncertainties. Unlike what some people do, David attributed his past victories to God and as such, he recalled with a heart of gratitude. How grateful are you to God for His daily provision, protection, good health, divine healing, etc.?
Point of Emphasis: God is unchangeable; He can do more for you today than He did yesterday.
Prayer Point: God, give me a heart of gratitude; no longer will I take Your grace for granted in my life.
