I Samuel 16:1-13

Topic: What God has for you, it is for you

No matter what you are going through in this life, just know this one thing:

What God has for you, it is for you.

You may not have everything that you desire or need right now. But just know and believe this one thing:

What God has for you, it is for you.

It doesn't matter of you are young or old, black or white, rich or poor, educated or not; just know and believe this one thing:

What God has for you, it is for you.

It doesn't matter if you are single, married, divorced or widow;

What God has for you, it is for you

And whatever God has for you, you don't have to lie to get it,

You don't have to steal to get it,

You don't have to cheat anybody to get it

You don't have to politic to get it,

You don't to deceive anyone to get it,

You don't have to argue or fight anyone to get it because what God has for you, it is for you. Instead of you battling someone to get what God has for you, you need to pray and let the Lord fight your battles, and let him bring it to pass.

You see, what God has for you may not come to you when you want it to come. It may not come today, next week, next month or this year. But just know and believe this one thing; what God has for you; it is for you, and it will come to you in God's own time.

But in order to receive what God has for you, you have to be the position to receive what God has for you. And to put yourself in the position to receive what God has for you, you ought to read and do what Psalm 37:3-5 says, "Trust in the Lord and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."

Yes, what God has for you, it is for you.

Now, in these passage of scriptures of I Samuel 16:1-13, we see the little boy David receiving what God had for him: that is the anointing to be the next king of Israel after King Saul. At this time in these passage of scriptures, if you would read I Samuel 15, King Saul had been rejected by God to continue as king over Israel because of his willful disobedience. So God sent the prophet Samuel to Bethlehem to make a sacrifice to the Lord and to select and to annoint one of the sons of Jesse to be the next king of Israel.

Now, the reason why David received the annointing to be the next King of Israel was because his heart was right with God. And that is good lesson to learn right there. And that lesson is that if you want to receive what God has for you, you have to make sure your heart is right with God. To have your heart right with God, The Lord has to be the center and the head of your life. You have to be one who trust and obeys the Lord. You have to be one who worship and serve the Lord with all your heart, and with sincerity.

But David almost missed out on the annointing to be the next king of Israel because of what his daddy Jesse had done. You see, when Jesse received word from the prophet Samuel that he was coming to Bethlehem to annoint one of his sons to be the next king of Israel, he took all of his sons to meet Samuel with hopes that one of them would be chosen and annointed to be the next king of Israel his sons. Jesse took all of his sons except one to meet Samuel. The one son that Jesse left behind was David. Now when Samuel arrived in Behtlehem to meet Jesse and his sons, Jesse had all of his favorite seven sons to pass by Samuel, thinking that one of them would be annointed the next king of Israel. He had the first son, Eliab to pass by Samuel. And Samuel almost annointed Eliab, the first son he saw because he looked handsome, he looked tall, he looked muscular, he had broad shoulders, he had a clean hair cut, he was dressed in a sharp suit, he looked physically fit. Eliab looked like he had the potential to be a good king, But the Lord intervened and told Samuel no because God told him, "Look not on their countenance, nor 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. man looks out on the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart."
