Scriptures: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
Before we get into this lesson realize this: God has a blessing just for YOU! What God has for you, it is for you! Its not dependent on your position in life: young or old, rich or poor, educated or not, single or married. You will not have to lie, steal, cheat, politic or deceive someone to get it. The blessing God has for you will come your way in His time!
You may not have everything you desire at this time, but a blessing is coming your way! Lets look at your scriptures from the book of Samuel: Samuel has come to anoint a son of Jesse to be the next king and Jesse calls all his sons, except David. Jesse did not want David around, but the prophet had a question for Jesse: "are here all thy children?"
God's blessing is not based on: other people's feelings about you, how people treat you, or if people ignore and overlook you! God's blessing is for you!
Samuel said to them we will not sit down until David shows up and when Samuel saw David the Lord said "Arise, anoint Him, for this is He." David was the one God had chosen and the anointing awaited his arrival. No person or situation could keep him from God's blessing.
God has a blessing just for you! Nothing and no one can stop it! But we must keep our hearts right with God, because soon we will arrive at our destination of blessing! "Samuel anointed a young shepherd to be the next king of Israel and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David."
