In everything he did had had great success, because the Lord was with Him.
David had no position or status before. He was the youngest in His family, from the smallest tribe in Israel, and God chose Him (which is so like our God!). The Lord was with him and David was a great success! He had the ‘midas touch.’ He was well loved. He led well. He experienced victory after victory because of one solitary reason – the Lord was with him.
Gaining skills and insights is a very good idea, but they will not bring success. There can be a façade of success, but true to the core success only comes through having the Lord’s Presence present.
Father, may I fail at everything else first before I fail at walking with You everyday.
