David’s power didn’t come from the sturdy walls of his fortress city or the strong arms of his mighty men. His strength didn’t spring from the natural realm but from a supernatural reality: He became more and more powerful because the Lord God Almighty was with him. God was David’s power source (see 1 Samuel 16:11–13).
Maybe you’ve sought power through positions, possessions or people. But you can be fired from a job, forfeit your property and lose the favor of people. Those sources of power are temporary, insecure and disloyal. God is the only sure power source.
