Text: 1 Sam. 16:1-13.
If I have a job opening for just one person, and I ask you to give me someone for that job, who will you give me? I can bet that the first person that will come to your mind is someone that you know either from your family or your circle of friends. If I was in your shoes, I will do same too. So do not take it out on Jesse for doing what he did.
Jesse fielded his sons that where close to his heart. The ones he believed were familiar to him. The ones he felt were the best.
As I was studying that passage, I observed that Jesse did not call David by name while telling Samuel about him (David). He was not as popular as his brothers as he was always in the field attending to his father’s sheep. But God by-passed the popular sons of Jesse and chose the unpopular one.
Read this: your face might not be on the billboards around the city, nor your name popular, but do not conclude on yourself yet. There is something God has put in you that will make you popular and renowned. Just keep at what you are doing and when the time is right, God will make you known.
Notice that David’s name was only mentioned after he was anointed. Up until now, it looks like no one knows you are existing in your family, workplace or even church. You try to do the best you can and yet, when it is time to be recommended, no one remembers you. Do not be dismayed my friend, you are the next to be located. There is an anointing that brings about announcement, and I pray God to release it on you today, in Jesus name. Amen!
