Tears steamed up my ears when my teacher Pastor Steve Gray said these words about David Sunday February 25th;” Something snapped in David when he heard Goliath insult G-d. David was defending G-d’s honour.”
Those words pierced my mind. my heart, and my soul. Every Jew was given a piece of G-d’s soul at Mount Sinai.
My teacher added these words:” David’s motive was to save the honour of G-d.”
Followed by these gems: “Goliath stood there challenging us to a duel for forty days.”
Then my mind snapped. I thought about Moshe on Mount Sinai with G-d writing down the Ten Commandments for forty days. After the Golden calf went back up Mount Sinai to spend another Forty days writing down the Ten Commandments.
This was followed by Yeshua in the wilderness for forty days fasting and being tempted by Satan.
Then I saw the pattern of G-d. While Moshe was on Mount Sinai we Jews lost our trust and built the Golden Calf. G-d wanted to destroy us. Moshe changed G-d’s mind and thus we were saved.
Once again G-d sent David to change our history. We Jews were stuck between two kingdoms Sha’ul’s who lost the Rauch HaKodesh and David’s who now had the Rauch HaKodesh. And this was the very prophesy that Ya’akov spoke over his son Y’hudah that Yeshua would come from the house of Y’hudah.
G-d kept his promise. HaShem used David to set up Davidic dynasty. This dynasty gave birth to Yeshua. And this very act led to G-d answering our prayer Barukh ata HaShem Eloheinu, Melekh ha’olam.
G-d come down and entered into our world. G-d took the form of Yeshua the Jewish Messiah-the Moshiach.
Thus, Yeshua was tempted by Satan. It didn’t work and this set-in motion G-d’s plan for redemption.
I know this is long winded. When my teacher Pastor Steve Gray preaches these things are shown to me.
I hear you speaking to HaShem. Help me get rid of the carnal weapons and pick up your weapons L-rd. This is what David did. Get rid of the old weapons that are in me. Please teach me the new weapons you L-rd have given me.
This is such a great gift G-d gave us (me). G-d gave us (me0 the privilege, the gift to address HaShem directly in prayer.
The words of prayer powered by the emotion of prayer and directed by our thoughts of prayer what a powerful gift G-d gave us to change me and the world around me.
So, G-d we offer back to you the words you gave us in your Torah.
This is what David did in our prayer book Tehillim.
