Topic: The Messing Up For A Rising Up
Today Thursday September 14, 2017
SCRIPTURE: And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons. 1 Samuel 16:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anytime a “Saul” messes up, there is a “David” God has prepared to come up
Saul was a man God picked out of nothingness and made him the first king of Israel. God fought battles through him but later, he became proud and disobeyed God to his own detriment and destruction. What a tragedy!
Then, one day, God told Samuel not to mourn anymore for the disobedient Saul but to get up and anoint another person that would take the place of Saul. David was anointed to take Saul’s place as king.
Beloved, I want you to know that anytime a “Saul” messes up, there is a “David” God has prepared who to come up. For every case of messing up by one person, God is arranging a rising up of another person because God cannot be stranded.
There was a man God told to start the work of a Ministry but he kept procrastinating. After many years of disobedience, he eventually decided to visit the city where God sent him for the ministerial work, there, he met the greatest: another person had started a Ministry with the same name God gave him years earlier and was already established and flourishing in the land.
Beloved, God cannot be stranded. Make up your mind not to be replaced in your generation.
Remember this: Anytime a “Saul” messes up, there is a “David” God has prepared to come up.
1. Make up your mind not to be a reproach to God on earth.
2. Be obedient and carry out God’s Divine instructions.
PRAYER: O LORD, help me not to end like Saul. Anoint me to become a man after Your Heart, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
