KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 20:31 KJV” For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Wherefore now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die”.
(Read 1 Samuel 20:1–42)
At the beginning of the new moon or month, King Saul had a meal or feast with the elite persons in his kingdom. King Saul expected David to be at the feast so that he would have the opportunity to kill him. David planned with Jonathan to escape. Saul had rebelled against God and was set on killing David so that his son Jonathan would be king. When Jonathan managed to cause David to escape, Saul got mad with his son and said, 1Sam 20:30 KJV “Then Saul’s anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion, and unto the confusion of thy mother’s nakedness? “Saul was so outraged with his son as a result of this, such that, he attempted to kill him with a spear. (1 Samuel 20:33)
There are some ministers who have fallen out of the will of God. They are ready to do anything to get their evil desires to pass. They will tell lies, manipulate, and do anything possible to get their evil desires fulfilled. This kind of thing can also be manifested in the life of any person who has dethroned the rule of God from his or her life. One may bear the title that he or she is a Christian, yet in practice he is far from being one. He would do everything to achieve his evil desires, yet would claim God is blessing him.
What is the meaning of life? Life is all about revealing the glory of God in you. It is about doing and achieving that which pleases the Lord. Revelations 4:11 KJV “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Anything you do that does not please Him is a rebellion against God and a destruction of your very life. Those who live for God’s pleasure are His delight and He will do everything to reveal His glory in them. Don’t be a self-willed minister. You must be without blemish.
I am a servant of God committed to reveal His glory in me. I do only that which pleases God. My life is extremely blessed. God is with me and I am highly favored.
Galatians 1:15 KJV “But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:”
2 Samuel 5:10 KJV” And David went on, and grew great, and the LORD God of hosts was with him.”
