Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward. And Samuel arose and went to Ramah.
1 Samuel 16:13 NASB
We often remember David’s great deeds, like slaying Goliath. And although he was a brave young person (killing a lion and bear), he accomplished much because he was anointed and filled with the Spirit.
The same Spirit of the Lord is available to us today, the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that it was better for Him to leave because He would then send the Holy Spirit.
The help that the Spirit of the Lord gave to David is now available to every believer who asks.
When I’m doing things under my own power, I need to stop and let the Holy Spirit empower and help me. Have I asked Him to fill me?
This is as simple as closing my eyes and praying. Sometimes, I need to be patient and wait for the Lord. But the Lord promises to never leave me.
Lord, thank You for the Holy Spirit. Help me by allowing me to understand the leading and power that the Holy Spirit offers me.
