How many of us can think back of a time that God has done something in our lives that we undeservingly received? If you can't, well ... How about your salvation? That's the ultimate gift to someone undeserving. Anyways, because I love worship and I love exploring David's life the most and here is what I've found in a nut-shell when it comes to this topic.
1. David was an illegitimate child - he basically have no family rights
2. He was purposefully left out when his dad was asked to bring all his sons - David cannot be included in the equation not because he's the youngest, but also because he's illegitimate
3. David was the smallest of all - In everyone's eyes, David won't last a minute out on the battlefield.
4. He spends most of his times in the field with sheeps - No one really knows him nor would have any experience in battle.
But God took all that ... used it for His glory ... and promoted David to king. God loves to use those that's willing to be used. He doesn't need a counsel to tell Him how good you are, how experienced you are, how many bible schools you've attended, etc .... He just need to know that you are willing and able. God chooses the unqualified, to demonstrate His successes.
I've been feeling very down lately, very tired of waiting. Sometimes it feels like I'm doing nothing to help the family. I've told myself to be practical, logical ... miracles do happen, but just not where I'm standing. Then I looked at David ... it's not about how well we can do things, but it's how available we make ourselves to be. Well, I'm still considering whether I'm called to full-time ministry right now. One day when you don't see this blog anymore, well that's when I've decided to move on. In all decisions that we make and in all that we do, remember this ... God chooses the unqualified, to demonstrate His successes. Something good always turns out for those who make themselves available to Him. God is Amazing!!
God Bless y'all!
