“And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father’s house. Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.” 1 Samuel 18:1-3
If God has connected you to a particular grace, it is because there are some things you cannot do for yourself but the grace will do it for you.
Jonathan and David were connected in a special way and they loved one another. Jonathan was instrumental in helping David survive the attacks on his life from King Saul.
Jonathan should have been able to stick with David throughout the course of life, and he would have survived and even thrived. Instead, Jonathan died by his father’s side in battle.
Sometimes, God connects us to certain people for a reason. It is our connection to them that blesses us. It was Ruth’s connection to Naomi that made her great, it was Lot’s connection to Abraham that made him wealthy.
Sometimes we tend to forget what our connections have done for us, and we can begin to imagine that we accomplished things in our own might.
If you married your wife when you had nothing, don’t get a little money and begin to undermine her. You have forgotten what her connection to you has brought you in life.
The Bible always tells us to remember. This is because God knows that we have a tendency to forget.
Do not forget yourself and abandon a God-given connection. It is a major risk to stay connected to people God is disconnecting you from. It is also a major risk to disconnect from people whom God has connected you to!
Prayer: Lord, grant me the grace to discern my destiny connections and not to cut myself off from your blessings. In Jesus name. Amen.
