“And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.”
Unnoticed …. is a notice to God.
It is funny how David was a young child, last of the batch, leading and loving God unnoticed!
Not even his family noticed him.
He surely wasn’t favored.
Wasn’t even really remembered!!!!
I mean his own father brought out “all the sons” right?
—1 Samuel 16:10—
He showed the best of the best.
The finest of his fleet, not little ruddy David!
Nope, not that one!!!
But God said, “THAT’S THE ONE!”
Wow! How awesome God is. When everyone is passing you by, even those you love so much. Family. Friends. Fellowship.
You are nowhere but God is looking at you…
That’s the one!
Yeah! Him! He has MY HEART!!!!! I love him!
I need him! I choose him! I select him! I appoint him and anoint him now so everyone can see. I am making him favored, exceptional, ready, recognized and someone to always remember.
All those that didn’t wave at David in the field.
Didn’t say good morning, didn’t say good night.
No hello, no goodbye, no how are you.
They passed right over his feed.
Again and again for 16 years of his life.
What a strong stamp of rejection they were placing over him. Until he recognized who he was IN GOD! I can imagine David saying:
“I don’t want your armor Saul!
That’s you gear!
I don’t want your crown Saul.
I don’t even want your crowd or the “glory” that follows of people!
But God I want. And I will be more undignified then all. I know what it is like to be unnoticed. I know what it is like to be passed over profusely and disgustingly!
BUT GOD! That is where my victory is at. So I am going to worship Him like madness!!! I am going to give him then my heart… Let’s see. He notices that about me.”
God took notice of the one who was unnoticed!
And made him the most passionate king! The one even with the weakness because God appointed him PRIOR TO THE GREAT BIG FALL!
Wow! Only you God!
“But now your kingdom must end, for the Lord has sought out a man (little David in the field) after His own heart. The Lord already appointed him to be the leader of His people, because you have not kept the Lord’s command.”
1 Samuel 13:14
Isn’t it nice to know that there is One that will never leave you unnoticed. ❤
