What People Thought of David and What God Thought about David

Before the battle between David and Goliath, David's first message from his family members went something like this:  "When Eliab, David's oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, "Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle."

According to Eliab, David's family member, David was the wrong person, at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

Perhaps David's dad also believed the same...that's why David was not present for the anointing of the new king of Israel.  What an opportunity!!  This beats winning the sweepstakes, lottery, or any game show winning by far!!  We are talking becoming historically the king GOD has chosen to be king over HIS PEOPLE Israel, down in history, written FOREVER.  This was needless to say, an important event!!  But was David present?  No!  He wasn't considered by his family to be the right person, so when the right thing, came at the right place, at the right time, David wasn't present.  But God.  But God had already chosen him to be king over his people Israel.

According to David's family, David was the wrong person, at the wrong place, at the wrong time.  You know the rest of the story.  David, anointed by the prophet Samuel, conquered Goliath and later became king of Israel and ancestor to the King of kings and Lord of lords, FOREVER KING JESUS.

So listen:  You may think you are the wrong person or just the right person at the wrong place, or the right person at the right place at the wrong time.  But listen, God is all you need.  One dollar with God can do more and go further than 2 billion dollars from the pocket of any Billionaire that has ever lived.  The truth is God needs nothing but His grace to accomplish what He has decreed.

So Put Your Hope and Your Trust In The LORD, God's People 

Look at 1 Samuel 17:28

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
