Read and Meditate on 1 Samuel 16: 14-23
Here David was called and anointed as King from the Lord, but his time had not yet come to rule as King. Instead he was sought after to minister to King Saul, by playing his harp to alleviate the distressing spirit from Saul temporarily. We learn that David was anointed by the Spirit of God and when Saul would have the distressing spirit upon him, David would play the harp and Saul would become refreshed and well. (1 Samuel 16:23).
Have you ever asked the Lord to give you His Holy Spirit to dwell within you? If not, ask Him now to baptize you with His Holy Spirit, or fill you afresh and anew.
Like David, we as believers have the Spirit of God that is able to give refreshment to those spiritually dead around us. 1 Corinthians 3: 17 says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (freedom).” If King Saul can be impacted by David, how much more the lost around us?
Fast & Prayer Challenge: Pray for your heart towards the lost. Perhaps you have grown complacent, dull or lacking desire or zeal to share the love of Jesus, Ask God to renew a right Spirit within. Pray for a life of personal evangelism and divine appointments, and look for those opportunities the Lord will put before you.
Consider fasting for the salvation a loved one, co-worker, family member.
Take Action: Create a list of names of those lost that you know, and place it on your bathroom mirror, shower, or somewhere you can remember to pray for them everyday.
Share the love of the Spirit of God (within you) with someone who may not know Him.
Journal: Take time to journal to the Lord from the genuineness of your heart, and note any scriptures He speaks to you.
