Nothing to Prove

"I HAVE been crucified with Christ. No longer I live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved and gave himself for me." (Gal. 2:20)


Paul knew an alignment must exist in the spirit realm for him to operate in the supernatural.


He understood that his outward position was an expression of his inward possession.


Paul knew he had no point to prove.


THE FOUR Hebrew sons knew there were no voids in life. (Dan. 1:1-15)

So, they took permission from the chief of the eunuchs not to eat the foods dedicated to idols.


They had no point to prove than be holy.

THE FACT that evil and good are the end users' products means the user determines the end product.

 

We determine the end product

As good users, we give meaning to life when we live as the salt of the earth.

When we thrive as the light of the world, we illuminate the world around us. (Matt. 5:13-16)

Moses brought light to the children of Israel when he returned as the deliverer. (Exod. 4:29-30)

Joseph brought hope to his people when he revealed his identity. (Gen. 45:12-14)

Wherever we find ourselves, God wants us to give hope.


HOPE lights up the room—and when we give hope, we give life.

Jesus gave hope to Martha when he said: "I am the resurrection and the life." (John 11:25)


David gave hope when he told the king that he would fight Goliath. (1 Sam. 17:31-33)

The light shone in the darkness, and darkness could not comprehend. (John 1:5)

The light shines in darkness and darkness cannot comprehend

EVERYONE loves a redemption story.

No wonder when David killed the champion of the Philistines, the women sang his praise.


Saul has slain his thousands and David his tens of thousands. (1 Sam. 18:7)

However, Saul lost his cool because he considered their song insulting.


WE CARE more for our possessions with which we hope to make our way in the world than with thoughts and dreams, which tell us who we are in the world – Eugene Peterson.

Saul was more concerned about the throne, so he kept an eye on David. He was more concerned about the gift than the giver.

He was afraid of David because God was with him. (1 Sam. 18:12)


TO WATCH David, he made a proposition.

I'll give you my eldest daughter, but you'll have to prove yourself by fighting my battles. (1 Sam. 18:17)

Saul does not know you have nothing to prove when God is with you.


The time came, and Saul gave his daughter to someone else.


WHEN Michal - Saul's other daughter, fell in love with David, the king sent his officers to convince him to marry her.

However, David rejected the offer because marrying the king's daughter was costly.

Tell David, 'The king doesn't want any payment for the bride except one hundred Philistine foreskins to get revenge on his enemies.'

When David heard this, he felt it was acceptable. So, he and his men struck down two hundred Philistines and got their foreskins.


Then, Saul gave Michal to him. But Saul was more afraid of David. (1 Sam. 18:22-30)


Final Thought


DAVID had the promise and the favour of God but did not realize that he had no point to prove.


The presence of God proves everything.
