“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.”
Acts 13:22

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 exceptional.
Wasn’t ready.
Wasn’t recognized.
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!
Only you……

“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. ❤




img_3686“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolation he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭46:1-11‬ ‭NIV‬‬ Continue reading

Many hands together: group of diverse people joining handsCan’t we all just get along?

With so many personalities, mood swings and perspectives it becomes very difficult for us to adapt to others. There has got to be a way–an effective way. Jesus showed us the way with 12, so let’s evaluate that as a start. Then make our analysis on the people factor for different folks! Continue reading

Win Some and Lose Some

fist-fightI was watching the reality show “Blackzilians” during my gym run on the treadmill and found it quite intriguing. It caught my attention because one of the fighters said, “I don’t care if I lose 4 out of 5 fights, I just know that the fire is going to come.” They had to discuss the reality of loss.  He had a very positive perspective on fighting. It doesn’t always mean that you celebrate the victories, but that you also learn how to deal with the losses.  Don’t allow loss to make you quit and throw in the towel.  If passion is what drives you, not winning, then you should never quit because of a loss.

There was another guy scheduled to fight and he caught a seizure.  The whole team felt the impact of him being down. They had to find someone else in the team to step up and fight. As all the men stood, you see that there were so many.  I think what really brings success is having a team of good fighters put together.  Of all the men there, each will have a different gift, skill set, talent, speed, coordination, agility and strength. Does that mean that one is less than the other? What it means is that every person on that team has something unique about them in order to fight.  This makes each of them valuable in their own way.  For when one is not able to fight on that day, someone else can fight for them!
