THIS SERIES: THE SEARCH FOR SIGNIFICANCE
The good news is that God has a habit of choosing the people that others pass over:
God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--
and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,
so that no one may boast before Him.
[1 Corinthians 1:27-29]
The youngest of eight, he was seen as so little consequence in the eyes of his family, that when Samuel invited Jesse’s family to a special sacrificial meal, David wasn’t included! [1 Samuel 16]
But David had learned a thing or two out on the hillside, looking after the sheep. He had learned that he was an individual of worth in the Lord’s eyes; that in partnership with the Lord he was any man’s equal; and that he did not need to wear any other man’s clothes—physically or metaphorically
[1 Samuel 17:38, 39].
Take some action today...
Get quiet in the Lord’s presence. Read Psalm 139:1-18,
(in the Voice translation), slowly and carefully.
This is what David learned—listen to what the Lord says
to you through it.
