And David had success in all his undertakings, for the Lord was with him.
1 Samuel 18:14
This David is the man who became a mighty King of Israel. God called him a man after his own heart. David never lost his zeal for God. He sinned in many ways, but never failed to turn to God for all his needs, especially his need for forgiveness.
When we maintain our faith in God and turn to him for the forgiveness of our sins, we too, become men and women after God’s own heart. It was David’s faithfulness that pleased God.
Even into old age, God promises that the faithful have great success in all they do for the kingdom, for success comes from the Lord’s strength, not our own. And if you are no longer sure how you can serve, remember, “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” James 5:16.
St. Paul, MN
Heavenly Father, thank you for your constant love and forgiveness. In Jesus name, Amen.
Reflect: Pray for others, knowing God’s power is present in your prayers.
