Position Yourself As King

Daily Devotional

I Samuel 17:25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s house free in Israel.

Before you can become king in your environment, you must position yourself as such. David was anointed to be King; however, he did not just sit back waiting for the passing of Saul to be then crowned King. Instead he seized an opportunity to position himself as King. And there was no better opportunity to do that than killing Goliath. Take note that in principle what David did to position himself as King was to solve a problem for the King in his environment.  With that accomplishment he was not only thought of highly by the King but also by the people. They started to sing Saul has killed his thousands and David his ten thousands.

You can follow in the steps of David Following in the steps of David you to position yourself for greater success in your field. Start by identifying a leader/king in that environment and help them to solve a problem.  Problems are opportunities to show greatness. 

Life Application: Help the leader in your field of work to solve a problem.

Prayer: Dear Lord, you have given me power and authority on this earth. Help me to position myself to flourish in the environment you have placed me. Give me humility however to not usurp those who have been placed above me but to instead honour them. In Jesus name, amen.
