I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite,
“Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him.” 1 Samuel 16: 18 KJV
God’s ways are not our ways;
We discovered that God did not directly give the above description of the qualities HE had seen in David through Samuel.
Instead, it came from a “servant” whose name was not even mentioned in the Bible.
This is a lesson for leaders God watches and uses whosoever obeys Him. Heaven will be full of surprises.
Whose son are you?
Are you indeed born again? We call you brother or Sister, but God knows who you are. If you are not His son, He knows.
What skills do you have?
You are born with talents and potentials, but you must develop yourself.
David from this account was just put in charge of the sheep, but he developed his skills. He was the 8th child, seven brothers were preferred before him, but that did not deter him from his destiny.
The dictionary defines valor as “strength of mind or spirit that enables somebody to encounter danger with firmness, personal bravery.”
The Bible says as a man thinketh so is he.
David had great thoughts about himself, which became manifested.
Are you talented? Add bravery to your talents and become who God has purposed you to be.
Today don’t hide your abilities be brave about it.
You don’t know who is going to give your testimony in the right place or using today’s parlance God is about to put in a proper word for you
Indeed, God is watching.
