On my way from Yola town to Jimetà I sighted a herdsman tending to his cattle far away in a vast empty land. Everyday I see them but this particular one caught my attention. The herdsman was not attractive in any form, his clothes were looking dirty and was so little when compared to the cattles he was leading. Quite an intereting scene though.The funny thing is wherever he directs his cattle they follow him showing that leadership is not by size.
As I thought about this I remembered David in the Bible. That must have been his lifestyle,obscured in his environment, nothing to attract you to him, alone in the field with his sheep guiding and protecting them. He was faithful in his work not minding how unattractive it was, obviously there are no rewards,he was consistent in his job taking the cattle to the field every day, doing what he knows how to do.
But when God needed a man to lead Isreal,he choose none other but David who was already doing what he wants to be done. When God wants to distinguish a man ,it comes from what he is already doing. He said I will bless the works of your hands,it doesn’t matter whether you are being paid already or not.
For those of you waiting for a special miracle ,find something and engage yourself with it cause that is where God will bless or favor you. There is always a time for little beginnings ,start from where you are. You create your season to shine when you start doing something for yourself.Find yourself and God will definitely locate you just like he did to David in the midst of obscurity and brought him to limelight.
In whatever you are doing God is watching you,observing every attitude of yours towards your work.When he is looking for a man to bless he will definitely select those who were found diligent in their work.
Don’t let yourself be found wanting.
You are the best.
