Last night in prayer meeting, I read from 2 Samuel 15 & 16. King Saul had disqualified himself as God’s first appointed King of Israel… so God commanded His prophet (Samuel) to fill a ram’s horn with oil… and go pour that oil (representing the Holy Spirit) on Kings Saul’s replacement (David, son of Jesse). Here are a few key verses from this story…
Samuel never went to meet with Saul again, but he mourned constantly for him. And the Lord was sorry he had ever made Saul king of Israel. (1 Samuel 15:35 NLT)
Now the Lord said to Samuel, “You have mourned long enough for Saul. I have rejected him as king of Israel, so fill your flask with olive oil and go to Bethlehem. Find a man named Jesse who lives there, for I have selected one of his sons to be my king.” (1 Samule 16:1 NLT)
When they arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!” But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:6-7 NLT)
So as David stood there among his brothers, Samuel took the flask of olive oil he had brought and anointed David with the oil. And the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David from that day on. Then Samuel returned to Ramah. (1 Samuel 16:13 NLT)
After I read those verses, God spoke to me. Really, He did!
Here is what God said to me, “Many who were great yesterday will not be great tomorrow. I am the Lord who promotes specific people at specific times for my eternal purposes. Just as I was sorry for ever appointing Saul as King, I am sorry for appointing many leaders who have gone astray in this hour. My horn is filled with oil and I am looking for David! I am not looking for people with outward beauty or extra-special talent, but I am selecting people with right thoughts and intentions. People with HEART!”
Then He honestly said to me, “Chuck, I have chosen you because of your HEART. In their own pride, others have disqualified you because of reasons that didn’t matter to me. You have been through the fire and you’ve come out with your HEART intact. You still care about people. You still love me in the rarest way, compared with many people from your generation. You still have faith. You still have humility. You still have love, and compassion. Therefore, I am pouring my oil on you… and the difference will be noticed by everyone! The Spirit of God will come upon you more than before. This is my promise to you this night!”
Dear friends, this promise to me is also an open promise to others who have been through the fires of life, but still have God’s HEART. Stop complaining about all the years that have passed you by. Guard your HEART. Don’t misinterpret the times of testing, Don’t become bitter with the people who have misunderstood you and misrepresented you. If you guard your HEART, and God pours His oil over you, there is nothing and no person who will ever be able to keep you from becoming what God has promised to MAKE YOU.
This is cause for celebration! Think about it, add your comments, and invite your friends to join the discussion.
