One of Christ's titles while here on earth with a human, physical body likened to ours was "son of David". He was sent to bring many sons to glory; through our belief in His death for our sin, and our receiving Him into our heart by faith, Believers are grafted into the vine of Israel.
We also are "sons of David" in a spiritual sense. The promises given to David are also ours. As we read and study the Psalms and the promises of Christ to His seed in the new and old testaments (new and old covenants), we can, by faith, claim the blessings, the promises, the very Spirit that rested upon Christ in its entirety.
While reading today I came upon Psalm 18:46-50. It says ~
" The LORD liveth; and blessed by my Rock;
and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me."
"He deleivereth me from mine enemies;
yea, Thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me;
Thou hast delivered me from the violent man."
"Therefore will I give thanks to Thee, O LORD,
among the heathen,
and sing praises unto Thy Name."
"Great deliverance giveth He to His king;
and showeth mercy to His anointed,
to David, and to His seed forevermore."
We can claim, and declare His deliverance against the enemy, the violence that surrounds and encompasses us today; and on any given day in the future. We are the spiritual seed of King David. If we are in Christ we are declared to be kings and priests before our God.
In the midst of our enemy, whatever or whoever it may be; debt, health issues, lust, debt, depression, lack of faith or violence, we can declare as this verse in Psalm says, IN THE MIDST OF OUR ENEMIES, that we are victorious over each and every issue that tries to defeat us as we represent Him on this planet.
The promises of God are as sure as the fact that the sun came out of its chambers this morning. As certain as we are that God will blanket the planet with darkness this evening at sundown and as the stars and moon bring forth their light, God's promises to the seed of David (THAT'S YOU AND ME!) are secured on the earth and in the heavens.
Christ, the seed of David, sitting at the right hand of the Father intercedes for us in every circumstance. He will bring us through the fire, through the valley, and we will skip over our mountains in His faith and by a full revelation of just how encompassing He is in our lives.
He who has promised is faithful and true! He is not a man that He should lie!
God, give me a daily revelation of just who You really are!!
