Do you feel the power of the Holy Spirit living within you? What does this power feel like?
God’s Word tells me that David and his army took back Jerusalem from the Jebusites. “And David became more and more powerful, because the LORD Almighty was with him.” 1 Chronicles 11:9 David was obedient and, as a result of that obedience, God was able to fulfill his plan for David and establish him as king.
Isn’t that what you and I want? Not to be king. But don’t we want God to be able to use us for his purposes? We want God’s dreams for us to come true.
I had the opportunity to visit the City of David in Jerusalem several years ago. (pictures) It’s very hard to try to describe what it felt like to stand within the ruins of David’s palace, looking down over the rooftops of Jerusalem.
It’s amazing to know that my God was David’s God.
The Alpha and Omega.
The Beginning and the End.
God was with David in Jerusalem. God’s power was in David, helping him to obediently fulfilled his purpose on earth. When David’s purpose on earth was done, our Father God brought him home.
God was also with me – when I was in Jerusalem and every day. The power of his Holy Spirit lives within me, helping me to fulfill my purpose. I’m still here because I’m not done yet. When my time is up, Jesus will walk with me into heaven, my forever home.
