The gospel of Matthew begins by calling Jesus the son of David, indicating His royal origin, and also son of Abraham, indicating that Jesus was an of the family of Israel – God’s first family; both are stock phrases, in which son means descendant, calling to mind the promises God made to David and to Abraham. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genealogy_of_Jesus#:~:text=Matthew%20begins%20by%20calling%20Jesus,to%20David%20and%20to%20Abraham.
We have heard/read/know of the testimony of king David. Being slight of build, he was sent to tend his father’s cattle. Being hated for his prowess a spear was cast to smite him twice and Saul hurled the javelin, saying to himself, “I’ll pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice. 1 Samuel 18:11. Saul sought-after David in rage https://www.enterthebible.org/Controls/feature/tool_etb_resource_display/resourcebox.aspx?selected_rid=614&original_id=29
Reading and meditating on the story of David peels away layer’s displaying God’s will and purpose. Humanly inexplicable, simply pray God’s will into being in your life.
Dear Lord, I believe that You uphold the creation by the strength of Your mighty power and Your great wisdom, and that in Your Word You have laid out all that we need to live godly lives that are pleasing to You.
I desire to do Your will oh God, and I pray that I may serve You in the manner that You require. Lord, in humility of heart I admit that I can do nothing of myself, but only as You give me Your sufficient grace, Your wisdom and Your strength.
Help me I pray, to live each day of my life in holiness and righteousness, in humility of heart and with self-control. Help me to walk in spirit and in truth and to do only those things that I have heard from You, through the Word of God and the gentle promptings of Your Holy Spirit in my inner soul.
May I look to You and not to the ways of the world. May I grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus, and may I apply myself diligently to pursue You greater plans and purpose in my life, willingly accepting correction, eager to forgive others and enjoying sweet fellowship with You day by day. This I ask in Jesus’ name,
Beloved I pray for you, in the battle of life may you begin to wax stronger and stronger till you become a champion and may your enemies become weaker and weaker until they are thoroughly destroyed in Jesus’ name. Amen.
