Topic: You Need A Helper, Deliverer 2 [Monday 22, August 2016]
“And it came… that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul” (I Samuel 18:1).
When David the shepherd boy was to move to another level in life, Goliath appeared. Just as David killed Goliath, God ordained you from the foundation of the world to kill Goliaths. Goliath stands for obstacles. But the truth you must keep before you is that, after David killed Goliath, Saul took over. Saul is symbolic of satanic restriction. Saul is worse than Goliath.
You know why? Saul has the POWER, the MONEY and the INFLUENCE. Every stage of your life has different obstacles that you must overcome to be able to move on in life towards realizing your dream. You are probably feeling helpless because there apparently is nobody you can run to for help. Saul was ignorant of the salient fact that David was serving the God that has the whole world in His hands.
Otherwise, he would have known that he was not going to be able to conceal or stop David anyhow. The same thing applies to you. Anyone or any obstacle that wants to humiliate you to a level below God’s placement will not succeed. God will send you a helper – even from your enemy’s camp! “And it came… that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul” (I Sam 18:1).
Jonathan was not only Saul’s son, but was the heir apparent. He was David’s best friend because God had ordained it that he should be David’s helper. His only dream was to make David great, rather than a successor to his own father, Saul. Your helper is not going to compete with you. Some people who usually want to help you are actually after your secret? God will raise genuine helpers for you.
When God raises a Jonathan for you, He will use your secret to complement you and show you the way. When that Jonathan comes, he will lift from you that burden which is too heavy for you. It is not God’s desire for you to carry a heavy burden.
FURTHER READING: I Samuel 19:10-24.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: My father, reveal to me the secret of my enemies against my life in Jesus’ name, Amen.
WORDS OF WISDOM: God can use even your enemies to bless you to ensure that your dream comes to pass.
