The Lion, The Bear, The Giant And The King

The Lion, The Bear, The Giant And The King—The LION could not prosper against David because David kept God in the supreme position in his life, in his thoughts, in his consideration.  David had to put his harp down and sing his praises out of breath while running toward the lion to do battle with the lion. The BEAR could not prosper against David because of the supremacy of God in David’s life. The GIANT could not prosper against David even though he came against David with the deadliest of weapons. KING Saul could not prosper against David even though he had supreme authority in the land. God’s supremacy was far greater than Saul and his army. “Yet God is my king from of old, Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.” (Ps.74:12, NASB)

THE LAW OF GROWTH AND INCREASE

God’s Word is working in us to improve us and increase us (Col 1:29). His Word is in you. His Word is a seed. A seed does not exist just to be a little round thing snuggled up in the ground. A seed exists to sprout, to push up out of the ground, to grow a stalk and put out leaves and blooms so that it may produce fruit and that fruit is meant to be of benefit to others. God’s Word is a seed in us and it is apples-on-treegrowing in us (Lk 8:11). A seed cannot stay as it is, it must increase (Jn 12:24). There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace…(Isa 9:7). The seed in the parable of the sower is the Word of God (Lk 8:11) and because the Kingdom government of Jesus cannot stay the same but must increase, that seed of His Kingdom must increase in us. It must increase in each of us so that it can affect our families, our churches, our communities and our nation. That’s why the seed is growing in us.
