Topic: ATTEMPT GREAT THINGS FOR GOD 1

Bible Reading: 1 Samuel 16:1

📖1….”And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.”

Message:

🔥The dealings of God with man, are projected from the future of every man, by the exclusive power of God to declare the end from the beginning…Isaiah 46:10. This means that God doesn’t deal with man according to the man’s past, neither does he relate with him according to the present state of the man, but according to the man’s future. This future is known only by God because He is both spiritually retroactive and proactive. It was this pattern of fellowshipping with man, that prompted God to reveal to Abraham in Genesis 18:17-21, what he was going to do in Sodom and Gomorrah; because He knew what Abraham would do in the future…Gen 18:17 & 19.

🔥🔥So, the sending of Samuel by God to the house of Jesse to anoint one of his sons as king in Saul’s stead, wasn’t because Jesse merited it at that time, but God saw in the spirit that he would merit it in the future. God saw that Jesse was going to live his life strictly for the welfare of Israel. Jesse had eight sons, but only seven were mentioned in 1 Chro 2:13-15 (Eliab, Abinadab, Shammah, Nathanel, Raddai, Ozem and David), and two daughters (Zeruiah and Abigail). Because of his love for Israel, Jesse boldly enlisted his three eldest sons into the army to fight for God’s nation…1 Sam 17:13.

🔥🔥🔥The question for us that believe in God today is, who can risk his eldest sons, or all his sons for God, in exchange for no expectation from God? I want to presume that apart from David, all the other seven sons of Jesse must have been in the army, and the unnamed one in 1 Chro 2:13-15, possibly died in one of the battles without a child, hence his name was omitted. Even the three sons of Jesse’s daughters (Zeruiah and Abigail), were also in the army. They were Joab, Asahel and Amasa. Beloveth, Jesse merited producing Israel’s greatest king, because he attempted great things for God.
