Topic: More Lessons From the Life Of David [Monday September 11, 2017]
Scripture: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Matthew 3:17
Thought For The Day: Rejection is often the birth place of distinction.
God’s utmost desire for His children is for them to please Him (Rev. 4:11). David was called a man after God’s Heart (Acts 13:22). Therefore, in order to please God on earth, it is necessary to learn and follow his footprints.
Yesterday, we looked at some vital lessons from the life of David. We saw amongst other things that rejection is often the birth place of distinction.
Today, other important lessons from the life of David are:
- The neglected among men are often the needed before God
David was not mentioned initially when Prophet Samuel came to anoint one of the sons of Jesse because he was neglected (1 Samuel 16), but unknown to those who rejected him, he was to become God’s choice for national leadership.
The lesson is: no matter how men reject you, God will remember you for a life turnaround.
- People tolerated by men are often celebrated by God.
David was also tolerated by his parents and brothers, yet he became God’s candidate for celebration.
Beloved, it does not matter how people belittle you, you shall be celebrated by the reason of the Anointing.
Remember this: Rejection is often the birth place of distinction.
- Ask God for a fresh anointing of His Spirit on your life.
Make up your mind to please God with your life.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for a fresh infilling of Your spirit and power. Help me to please You with my life in Jesus’ Name.
