Summary: As a believer, I have Jesus Christ the King on the inside of me. Therefore, there is more to me than the eye can see.
Verse 7 says:
But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
It’s not what’s on the outside that counts; it’s Who is on the inside! There is a King inside of you and His name is name is Jesus Christ. He’s called the King of kings because the king in you has anointed you to king. The book of Revelation says this about those who are with the King of kings. It says He has called you to be called. He has chosen you to be chosen. And He has put faith in you for you to be faith-filled and faithful. The King has anointed you to be much more than the eye can see. There is potential in you. There is promise in you. There is purpose in you. You just need a preacher to let you know there is a King in you and Jesus Christ the King has placed greatness upon you. The King in you has anointed you to be a king too. If you are trying to decide on which church is the right church for you, make sure you find a pastor that is prayed up to fill up his horn with oil. And look for a pastor that is looking for the king in you so He can tell you that the King has anointed you to be king. The turning point in David’s life was when a preacher came to him and told him he was going to be someone special. I find it interesting that Jesse brought all of the boys except David. That let’s me know that even if I don’t look the part, I’m still anointed. Even if my earthly father rejected me, my heavenly Father has not. I’m still anointed. Even if there are people over me that are more qualified and more educated than me and have been in the position longer, I’m still anointed. David did not go through the sanctification process in verse 5 with his brothers, but he was still anointed. He came straight from the field for the priest to tell him he was anointed. You may have straight from the "hood", straight from the country; but you are still anointed. David still had the smell of goats and sheep upon him; but he was still anointed. You may have just come out of your sin. You may still have on the stench of whatever you’ve been in. Don’t go back in because you are destined to be more than you’ve been because you are anointed!
Verse 13 says:
Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
David was not the same after the preacher told he was anointed. The Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. Some you need the Spirit of the LORD to come upon you from this day forward. You need to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. If you believe there is a King in you that has anointed you to be a king, let Him pour His oil on you so you can have the Spirit of the LORD to come upon you from this day forward. The King wants to endow you. The King wants to endorse you. The King wants to bless you with His heavenly resources and supply. You can be filled with the Spirit from this day forward. You can be full of the Spirit from this day forward. It’s all a matter of believing and receiving what the King in you wants to put on you. If you believe the King in you has anointed you to be a king, there are some things you will do and some things you will not do.
