Long ago lived a unique man named David. God ordained him to be an extra-ordinary servant for the Lord’s purposes. (Read Acts 2: 25-28)

Below you will find six realities that can make you a mighty man or woman of God. Be like a David, a mighty man of God, and read each statement below to be about the business of honoring your Heavenly Father.

  1. David said, ”I saw the Lord always in my presence.” Ask yourself if you are drawing closer and closer to God, moment by moment, rejoicing in His presence.
  2. David said, “He is at my right hand, so that I will not be shaken.” Can you claim that you are so very near to God that you live in awesome peace with Him?
  3. David expressed His joy in God, saying, “Therefore, my heart was glad and my tongue exulted.” Does your heart radiate joy and gladness, as you live daily praising His name?
  4. David embraced a divine confidence in Christ, as a way of life. Be sure your  day-by-day confession is, “Moreover my flesh also will live in hope.”
  5. David recognized that intimacy with the Lord brought about more and more wisdom in living life. He declared, “You have made known to me the ways of life.”  Make sure that you can say and embrace that above statement.
  6. David faithfully walked knowing that the joy of the Lord was His strength. Listen to His joy, and be regularly confessing, “You will make me full of gladness with your presence.”

            Pastor Jim Johnston in Tulsa, Oklahoma puts these truths in perspective, saying: “Joy is the emotion of salvation. We rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory (1 Peter 1:8). If you’re a Christian, the Spirit gives you soaring delight in Christ. His beauty and greatness thrills your soul. AMEN!
