David is an Icon for Victorious Living
I can identify with David on many levels I’d rather not. However, I am grateful God chose to share David’s defeats with us. Otherwise, we might have thought David was perfect. Shying away from his story, thinking we could never attain the same relationship with God, we would have missed out on the powerful truths his life shows us. Truthfully, it was David’s ugly sin that drew him closer to God and brought about his greatness.
Though he failed miserably time and time again, David always came back stronger.
David’s life exemplifies the courage needed to get back up again. There are many lessons to learn when taking a closer look at the life of King David. In his new book, author and pastor, Jimmy Evans, helps us hone in on ten of the most important lessons the Bible has to teach us.
Recently, I read ‘I Am David: 10 Lessons on Greatness from Israel’s Most Famous King.’
Honestly, I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Here’s what Amazon has to say:
“HAVE YOU HEARD GOD’S CALLING TO GREATNESS? HAS THE ENEMY TRIED TO STEER YOU AWAY FROM HIS VOICE?
Greatness is carved into every person’s DNA.
You may be unsure about your calling, or you may think that your failures have disqualified you from God’s plan. King David was a world-renowned ruler—hand-picked by God Himself—yet he made many mistakes. Still, this man understood his divine call to greatness, and you can too.
In this book with included study guide, Jimmy Evans shares 10 important lessons from the life of King David. You will learn how to:
• RECOGNIZE GOD’S CALLING ON YOUR LIFE
• DISCOVER THE STEPPING STONES TO GREATNESS
• AVOID DETOURS AND DISTRACTIONS
• REDIRECT YOUR PATH AFTER MISTAKES
• HELP OTHERS DISCOVER THEIR DIVINE CALLINGS
GREATNESS IS NOT BEING PERFECT. IT’S BEING WILLING TO — USE YOUR GIFTS FOR GOD.” *Description taken from Amazon.com

And, here’s a little snippet:
Sacred spaces and getaway places are necessary for the victorious life we all desire. Creating solidarity with God in the sacred space of everyday life costs us greatly. Undeniably, the desire to be strong and courageous lies within us all. No one wants to experience defeat on an ongoing basis. So, how do we create the sacred space where God can show up and show out in our lives?
