Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head. David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. “I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off. This is one of the most important Tests of Walking in your Destiny. This is the Test of not trying to wear someone else’s armor, aka the Test of Believing God for who you are. So much of the time, Christians don’t recognize our calling, we don’t see ourselves as gifted or talented. We have to know who we are in Christ, that we matter, that we perfectly fit into the Body of Christ, that we have purpose, that we have destiny! When we are out of position we get to looking around, wishing we were someone else or at least have their gifts, you know what I mean, that desire to prophesy like he does, or to have the courage to teach and preach like she does, if only I could quote the Word like so and so, or pray like him! If only….we get so caught up wishing we had what they have, we don’t recognize and practice what the Lord has given us for his Kingdom! The enemy loves to keep us always striving to be who we are not, that way we will not flourish in who we are! We must quit comparing ourselves to other believers, you are not going to do something or be just like anyone else EVER! We are unique! Embrace the new creation! Exercise, practice activating the gifts the Lord has given you. Take your place in the body, there is a real rest in that! Don’t try to wear another’s armor also speaks of trying to build relationship with the Lord through other’s revelation of Him. We cannot lean only to other’s sermons and teachings to know the heart of the Lord, listening to other’s revelation of God and His Word should compel you to begin to know Him in a personal way. If we are not digging for ourselves, seeking Him first in our lives, experiencing first hand His love for us, then we are living a kind of fake Christianity. So, quit comparing yourself to others, coveting their gifts and talents, and just press in to the Lord, He teaches us who we are! He formed each one of us and has a plan for our lives and loves us! Who could ask for anything more!
