Have you ever read this part of the Bible, “And as the women danced, they sang out: “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.” (1 Samuel 18:7, BSB) Have you ever wondered what battle this was for, or been amazed at what David did? Okay, now let’s talk about our own lives and situations. Have you ever danced and sang like those women because you were amazed at the victories God brought to you or others? If you have and will continue to do so, then hear this…
King David slain tens of thousands, yet, Jesus destroyed the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, once and for all! (Hebrews 2:14, Hebrews 10:10)
That’s why the Apostle Paul reminds us again and again: Rejoice!
If you know and believe the Word of God, you should have no reason not to rejoice! Rejoice in all circumstances! (Philippians 4:4-8)
Maybe you are weary and have burdens? Come to Jesus who can give you rest.
Maybe you are facing a storm in your life or in your mind? Seek Jesus who can calm the wind and waves for you.
Maybe you need wisdom or understanding? Ask Jesus who can give you the Advocate to help you and be with you.
Maybe you are in a place where you are struggling with life or death? Then follow Jesus who can give you life, and life abundantly.
Why are you downcast, why do you worry, and why do you fear? Is Jesus not enough for you? Did He not have enough power to save you and rescue you? Do you doubt the love He has for you, or don’t believe the demonstration of love He had made for you? He chose to submit to the cross and destroy the enemy’s work rather than call down the thousands of angels to save Him from the agony of the cross.
My dear friends, Jesus has full authority everywhere on heaven and on earth. Do not look at Him and continue to be frightened and amazed saying, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him!” (Luke 8:25, NIV) It is time to fully know that He is the Lord of all lords!
