“Then Saul said to David, “May you be blessed, David my son; you will do great things and surely triumph.”” (1 Samuel 26:25).
Dear friend, the Lord has a wonderful promise for you today. It is from 1 Samuel 26:25, “Then Saul said to David, “May you be blessed, David my son; you will do great things and surely triumph.”“ Yes, this is the blessing the Lord has for you. He says, “May you be blessed My child.” You will accomplish great things and you will surely prevail. Saul blessed David with these words but Saul hated David in his heart. Saul went after David to kill him. As he was approaching David, when he saw him face to face, he blessed him instead of killing him. This is the blessing of the children of God. When we love the Lord with all our heart, He will make even our enemies to bless us.
The Bible says in Proverbs 16:7, “When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.” When a man’s way pleases the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Yes, David was a man after God’s own heart. God testified about David saying, “He is a man after my own heart. He does everything I want him to do. He obeys Me and does My will in a perfect way.” This is the testimony concerning David from the Lord. David’s ways were so pleasing unto the Lord. That’s why God made his enemy to bless him.
When our enemies hate us or are so jealous of us and say abusive words against us, we literally hate them isn’t it? But instead of hating them, if we bless them and pray for our enemies, the Lord will bless us even more than our enemies. We read in the Bible, “The war between the house of Saul and the house of David lasted a long time. David grew stronger and stronger, while the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker.” (2 Samuel 3:1) Yes, David grew stronger and stronger. This is the blessing God has for you too. You will become stronger and stronger. You will certainly prevail. You are a blessed person. Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time (1 Peter 5:6). May the Lord prosper you and bless you at the right time. You will do great things and you will succeed.
Loving Heavenly Father,
Bless me today according to Your promise. Let me become stronger and stronger day after day. Let my inner being be strengthened by Your Holy Spirit. Restore everything that I have lost. Bring back everything into my life. Make me do great things for You.
In Your Name I pray, Amen.
