The other sons were soldiers. But only David was anointed to be GOD's main servant, main warrior, his main man, his apostle of the time, the spiritual and physical leader of Israel.
Only David was not fearful of the giant Goliath.
It doesn't matter how small, poor, uneducated, poor speech, poor grammar, or insignificant that we might seem to ourselves or to other humans. Our Great BIG GOD can and will use us in VERY BIG ways if we are willing to submit fully to Him, surrender our previous lives, and follow Him fully.
Remember that Moses was not a good speaker and needed his brother Aaron to speak for him sometimes and to assist him.
Luke 1:46-56 Mary was a young virgin lady in a time when women were not considered significant or important in ancient middle eastern culture. Today, she would be considered just a minor child. But GOD used her in a VERY BIG way! She was humble & GOD fearing woman. But GOD exalted her.
Luke 14:7-11 Don't seek fame or power. Don't exalt self.
But rather humble self. Then Jesus will in time exalt eventually.
Daniel 4 (Entire chapter) King Neb became prideful. Forgot the source of his power.
Jesus humbled him, brought him low for 7 years, as an animal/beast.
Trump will be brought low and humbled!
He quoted & praised a person who said that Trump is like a King of Israel and like the 2nd Coming of GOD!!!!
As much as I love Trump, we must all proclaim that he has reached a similar level of vanity that Satan had/has, and that Assad has, and MUST repent!
Daniel 2:19-21 Daniel said that GOD brings up kings/kingdoms AND brings them down.
Ezekiel 17:22-24 Trees in this parable = kings/leaders as we saw in Dan.4
NOT ONLY presidents/kings & governments will be brought down and replaced, but also ministers/preachers ministries/churches.
Who would have ever heard of Sir Lancelot Brenton and remembered his name to this day, if it hadn't been for this translation of the Gk Septuagint? ONE MAN alone, with the help of The Holy Spirit, who translated the GK Septuagint and created a translation better than the KJV.
Who would have remembered the name of Paul, except for his work for JEsus? If he had never gotten saved, NONE of us would know who Paul was.
Who would have ever imagined JESUS choosing pastor tim? Who would have ever heard my name in the middle east, or Asia, or Africa? NO ONE! GOD could have chosen someone famous, rich and powerful. But instead, He chose to use the lowly.
That shows the power and mercy of GOD upon the poor and the lowly, the underdog, the black sheep of the families, the cast outs. Those that no one else wants. GOD chooses.
