2 Samuel 22: 18-20 He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me; For they were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my support. He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me.
He delights in you! God delights in YOU! It doesn’t matter where you have been, where you think you are headed or what your struggles are God loves and delights in you and would love to deliver you from it all.
This is part of David’s song to God and he spoke with confidence when he said that God delights in him. There are times when David says things that you could get the opinion that he was maybe a bit full of himself, but he was the king and he did have many accomplishments but when you really look at all he says over and over God gives the glory to God for all he did. David made mistakes just like anyone else but he knew God well enough to know and believe that God’s promises are true and if God said he forgave him, David moved on and put defeat in his past he didn’t let it affect his future in any way. God could deliver David and give him victory because David was always ready to move forward in his life.
What are you hanging on to? I really get tired of hearing people say, “well, that’s just the way that I am.” We are fortunate enough to live in a day where we know that Jesus died on the cross for that, “just the way that I am” attitude! There is no excuse to live in defeat or discouraged because of your past! Today is a new day and if you will allow God to deliver you from those thoughts of defeat He will because He delights in you and wants you to live life to the absolute full degree He created you for.
What is your strong enemy? (Identify it now and ask God to deliver you from it) Who hates you? (Well, Satan does because he fears you; he knows God has a plan for your life and he is afraid of what affect it could have on his little disgusting kingdom) People also have a way at times of kicking you when you are down. (Allow God to lift you up and show you off as the strong woman you really are.) Pray and ask Him to day to bring you into that broad place of freedom because He truly does delight in you!
