David

So i have had an extremely relaxing week! It was much needed after last week for sure! I started reading a commentary about David. You might of heard of him…he was that scrawny little Shepard boy who slayed that ogre jerk Goliath. Anyways, the commentary is by Charles Swindoll, i love the way he writes. I had never read anything by him before but i am going to start reading his stuff for sure.

I ‘ve picked up on some really cool stuff on David in my reading the past few days. The people GOD used in the Bible and the ones he continues to use today is strategic for sure. Three of the reasons GOD chose the little Shepard boy were…

1.Solitude- We really need to learn life’s major lessons alone before we can trusted with great responsibilities. David was definitely stuck in solitude. i don’t know about you but when i think of something fun and exciting, herding my pops sheep doesn’t come to mind. He was out in the middle of nowhere and had to fend for himself. And i mean if you cant stand alone with yourself you are most def gonna have some deep inner conflicts.

2.Obscurity-Men and women servant leaders for GOO are more often then not unseen,unknown and un- appreciated. Servants who are willing to accept this and aren’t demanding the spotlight are they ones that will stir some things up dude!

3.Monotony-Being faithful in the insignificant and routine daily tasks of life Christ calls you too!The true test of where your heart is at is how you act when you are all alone and not a single person is watching…

1 Samuel 17:34-35

But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it.

(SOLITUDE,OBSCURITY,MONOTONY)

peace and love
