Key Text: 1 Samuel 16:17, 21
So Saul said to his servants, “Provide me now a man who can play well, and bring him to me.” So David came to Saul and stood before him. And he loved him greatly, and he became his armor bearer.
David’s ascent to the throne was not as a result of any political training or military accomplishments, he gained access to the palace through his exceptional skill in playing the harp; he plays so well that demons tremble.
What comes to your mind when you see successful people and great influencers in positions that are totally unrelated to their training, disciplines or backgrounds? Becoming successful is not necessarily a function of a particular personality, skill or discipline: it’s actually a function of diligence.
Do you see a person skilled in his work? He will take his position before kings; he will not take his position before obscure people. Proverbs 22:29 NET
Joseph became Prime minister in Egypt, not because he was a trained Economic advisor, but when it comes to the issue of dream interpretation- you cannot beat him. Nehemiah attended to the king’s food, and became a governor of his people. Peter was a great fisherman; yet he became one of the greatest “Fishers of Men”, Deborah was a lady and a prophetess but was able to rule Israel for over forty years.
There is no skill that doesn’t qualify for kingship or success; it is people with no skills that are disqualified.
Being the best at whatever you do or are gifted at is no longer a matter of choice if you must succeed. God will use your skill today as the key to unlock the real greatness inside of you and with it grant you access to your kingship.
In whatever you do today, determine to be nothing less than the best.
Find your own “Harp”, play it well until the doors of your kingdom fling open.
You will rule.
Prayer: Father, Help me find the real keys to unlock the doors to my kingship today.
