Stronger and stronger

2 Samuel 3:1”There was a long war between the house of Saul and the house of David. And David grew stronger and stronger, while the house of Saul became weaker and weaker.”

When God starts pouring down His blessings on you then you need a giant vessel, such would be the overflow; however, God cannot bless a vessel with a hole, there are prerequisites that needs to be fulfilled in order to receive blessings from God.  God’s Word, God’s ways are passé today, it’s all about how smart, astute, skilled, hard-working, computer- savvy, experienced and technically trained you are, very few rely on God and church for success in their life. The empty church and empty Christians are proof for this. Listen to today’s teaching very carefully and set right your life.


When I went to pray for a family who were going through severe problems, sickness and other major issues, they continuously kept asking me why they were going through such problems, this family had disobeyed God and had done intermarriage for their children with family of other faith. Did they not know it was wrong? Oh, yes they know; however, people justify their sins, is it not?  They do not go to church, pray or read the Bible; yet, they kept asking me the reasons, I told them, ‘your disobedience has brought these curses on you, so set right your life and stay away from idols.’  Do you think they agreed? Never, they got upset with me, people expect to hear ‘magic words’ like next year everything would be ok. How? Unless you rectify nothing is going to change. Is anybody listening? Moses said ‘the Lord is angry with me’, read: Deuteronomy 3:26"But the LORD was angry with me on your account, and would not listen to me; and the LORD said to me, 'Enough! Speak to Me no more of this matter.”  You know what, the common phrase that we hear today is ‘why is God angry with us’ but here we see Moses confess‘the Lord was angry with me.’ Amen. God expects that from us.


The above scripture talks about the house of David getting stronger and stronger, because despite his flaws, David repented and sought forgiveness from God and made all efforts to live upright and obeyed the commandments of God.  Read his words: “Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the paths of your commands, for there I find delight.” (Psalm 119:33-35) This is called a humble and teachable spirit! You know when you love God then obedience becomes easy because we don’t want to lose God at any cost – suffered enough.  Right!


I mean there’s so much to write about David’s passionate love for God, his obedience and his efforts to get his life right before God, despite his weaknesses.  On the other hand, the stubborn, rebellious, disobedience of Saul brought the downfall of his entire family.  When the leader errs the entire ship capsizes! Caveat!
