2 And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.
3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.
4 And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?
5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.
7 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.
8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.
11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
13 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.
14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
15 And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.
16 Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.
17 And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me.
18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.
19 Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep.
20 And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul.
21 And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.
22 And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favor in my sight.
23 And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
No plan while accomplishing the will of God!
If you are going to start a worldly project, you must first set the steps of your project,
you have to assess it,
you must also having a budget.
In the salvation way it is not like that!
God start on naughty. He called David and anointed him as a king of Israel from the watching Father’s flock.
The same way for everyone called to respond at His will and it still is alike today.
From Samuel 16 verse 1-7
The scripture said that all seven Jesse’s sons had passed by before Samuel but God didn’t allow Samuel to anoint any one except David.
When Samuel saw Aliab he thought that surely the Lord’s anointed was him. But the lord prevented Samuel to not consider his appearance or his height for He had rejected him.The lord doesn’t look at things like man. Man looks outwardly but the lord looks inwardly. .Samuel saw Aliab’s beauty ,height and his appearance, thinking that he was the one God wanted to anoint. That is how people have to deceive themselves.
Remember when Isaac was older decided to bless his first born Esau before he died. He thought that Esau deserved that blessing because hi was the first born, was cunning hunter of wild game what was against the will of God. The will of God was upon Jacob.
Briefly, looking for the position, the situation is to stand against the will of God.
God had called his servants and still be calling them for his work.
If God had called his servants and anointed them by the oil through his prophets like Samuel, He calls and anoints today his servants by Holy Spirit.
This anointing is not made by the human hand. It applied to that one who heard the true Gospel, recognized his true image and performed the true repentance for having the forgiveness of sins. He receives that anointing as gift of the Holy Spirit.
Into the church, people look after someone’s work, good behavior thinking that they found the righteous in their sight, but not at the God’s one. sight of God.
Truly there is a process to be anointed by the Holy Spirit:Hearing the Gospel; Believing it; Recognizing his true image of sinner; Repenting and getting the forgiveness of his sins.
1 Samuel 16:14-23
The scripture spake about David at the king service that evil spirit was coming upon king Soul and tormented him. Thus the king attendants said; Let our lord commend his servants to search for someone who can play the harp when the evil spirit from God comes on him to bring him better, what was vain except David played music.
He sang with anointing from God and the evil spirit which tormented Soul fled. Without anointing nothing can praise God .
Let’s conclude by this holy passage from the book of Romans:
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that loveGod, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God‘s elect? It is God that justifieth.
God bless you.
