There is power in the supernatural workmanship of how our Father created you, beloved family!!! To step out into life and try to be somebody that you are not made to be is like being an actor on the stage – it is a learned behavior or performance of being based upon a script written by someone else. To be that continually would be exhausting because it is not divinely natural and to live in that way of life would be to forever miss out on the pleasure of being the divine Masterpiece of the YOU that our Father created you to be!!! The world would forever miss out on the divine contribution of YOU into the world also!!! A good example of this is found in the story of David when he was presented with the opportunity to let God work through him with what God had invested into him to slay the Philistine giant for God’s people. David presented his qualifications to King Saul in this way:
Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by the hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear, this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them. The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.
Despite David’s divine experience and ability, as he was getting ready to go, King Saul sought to write the script of how David should do the task as it is written:
“Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.” Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head. David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them.
The result for David:
“I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off. Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and with his sling in his hand, approached the giant.
The result for David:
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.
1 Samuel 17 NIV
I want to encourage your heart, precious one, that our Father has created each one of us unique and has given us life experiences to prepare us for life where he has us!!! David gave a new idea a try, but found his victory in trusting in the Lord to guide him personally in the best way for him. Not all the ideas of others are beneficial in life, but they do give us new experience as we reflect on them of what does and what doesn’t work for us!!! The moral of the story is that the Lord must be our guide in life and just because others make suggestions to us, it doesn’t mean that it is right for us in life!!! We can consider suggestions or Godly counsel, but let us always seek Jesus to guide us and go with what He puts in our heart as right for conquering life!!! Be YOU with Father with you confidently – it is the divine for victory!!! Much love to you wherever and however Father has you going for victory today!!! YOU and He can do life divinely as He is calling you to do today!!! Me and Father, too!!! WOOOHOOO!!! It’s going to be exciting adventure as we follow our Father where He leads us!!! I’m proud of you for going with Him into life, strong and courageous and confident in being the divine you with His help with you!!! Never will He leave us nor forsake us as we journey with Him!!! Bless our sweet Father for being our helper!!! 🙂 I love the journey through life on His shoulders!!! He is our hope and realization of victory that we can rely on as we experience life as this song says here.
