The Power of Commitment

David’s commitment to serve King Saul in a very harsh environment is just amazing. David’s gifting made a way for him to serve in the Palace. When he got there, it was nothing close to what he signed for. As he played the harp & Lyre, his life was threatened by the very King he was serving. There were eleven attempts to kill him but by God’s grace he survived. No one can thwart God’s plan for your life no matter who they are.
The amazing thing was that David never quit serving, he was committed to his assignment. The question is, why didn’t he quit?

1.He knew the “why”.
He understood his purpose of his assignment. When you know your purpose in the place of your assignment, you don’t stop being committed.

2.He was a man of Prayer.
He spent many hours in the Lords presence. It is in prayer we find comfort, strength, peace, direction, wisdom and counsel. You will stay committed to God’s purpose if you are constantly in prayer.

3.He found a destiny helper.
David service and commitment was made possible because he found a destiny helper in Jonathan, King Saul’s son.
Life can be tough when you are walking alone.
Find someone who is real that you can share your heart and also they are willing to help you.
Jonathan was David’s destiny helper.
We have many destiny killers around us, find a destiny helper.
May the Lord give you the tenacity to stay committed even in harsh environment like David.

Samuel 19:1-3
Saul told his son Jonathan and all the attendants to kill David. But Jonathan had taken a great liking to David 2 and warned him, “My father Saul is looking for a chance to kill you. Be on your guard tomorrow morning; go into hiding and stay there. 3 I will go out and stand with my father in the field where you are. I’ll speak to him about you and will tell you what I find out.”
