Very few people had the resume David had:
Some knew him as a shepherd.
David started very small. In the shadows, almost forgotten.
He had very high highs. And, very low lows.
His anchor was: ‘the Lord was with him”.
No matter what.
God will just be on whomever He chooses. And, whenever He decides to raise you up, nobody can keep you down.
Like you and me, David just got up on ordinary mornings. He set out, just like we do – no angelic visitations, lightening did not flash, thunder did not roll. The sun just rose ordinary like it always does. At the first glimmer of daylight, David jumped up out of bed on a mission to care for the sheep. As the morning moved, he found himself consumed with his daily duties such as strengthening those who were week, and healing those that were wounded, and, binding up those who were broken, and seeking out that one lone sheep that had wandered away. In the middle of his ordinary – God had a very specific plan for His child.
Then, there was a day, that a messenger showed up in the sheep field, and said, “David, Samuel’s at your dad’s place, and he wont rest until he sees you.”
And, when David went to Samuel, the oil flowed, David was the anointed and then he went right back to the ordinary mornings of the sheep field.
Why? Because, just like you, God chose Him. God chose the growth plan and the time. And, it wasn’t time yet.
Stay the course, DearOne. God’s ways are right. Your opportunity is coming.
“And then GOD answered: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.” Habakkuk 2:2-3 MSG
Your time is coming.
