Why David Had To Leave Saul.

Hello everyone, I would like to share something the Lord laid on my heart.

David was a shepherd boy who confronted and killed Goliath. King Saul adopted him and brought him into the palace to work with his soldiers. Saul witnessed the slaying of Goliath. He saw the incredible skill-sets David deployed to annihilate the enemy of Israel. He saw how through David’s act of bravery Israel won the battle and their enemies fled in terror. He saw the potential for greatness in David. From what the women sang after the battle he knew that David was made for great things in Israel.

Saul gave David a high position in his army. Made him the head of a unit, even gave him his daughter to marry, but Saul had no plans of ever allowing David become all he was capable of becoming. As long as David remained small, as long as he remained a servant working for Saul, as long as his dream did not clash with the kingly ambitions of Saul, he was welcome in the palace.

God’s plan for David was to become king, not to be a servant in Saul’s palace. David could never become a king as long as he remained in Saul’s palace. David had to leave Saul before he became all that God planned for him to be.

Saul became the albatross in David’s way. He became the one who blocked David from his greatness. Saul had become the enemy and if David wanted anything meaningful to happen in his life, if he wanted God’s will to be done in his life, if he wanted to see his dream become a reality, David had to leave Saul’s palace.

Saul’s palace represented success for David. He was a shepherd boy who was promoted to rub shoulders with the rich and powerful in the palace and could have started thinking that this was the ultimate for him. He had access to powerful people in the country, however if he wanted to fulfill destiny he had to leave Saul because Saul would never allow him become a king.

Who is the Saul in your life? Saul would never let you rise. He will never let you shine. He will reserve certain opportunities for himself alone and let you eat the crumbs of success which fall off his table. Saul will never allow you be the best you are capable of becoming. Saul would make sure you never become anything of value on this earth. As long as you remain with Saul you will remain an underdog, a servant, a slave. Continue reading

Do Not Stay In Your Lane.

Hello everyone. How are you doing?

When someone tells you to ‘Stay in your lane,’ you should ask yourself these questions:
Does this person know you well enough to make this statement?
Was that person present when God gave you your assignment?
Is that person now monitoring your life as if he or she would reward you for what you do right or punish you for your errors?
When you step out to pursue something new, when you dare to pursue a dream, when you break out of your mould to do something different with your life, there will always be people who who think it is their God given assignment to keep you in the place where they think you belong. Continue reading

Understanding Grace and Gifts.

Understanding Grace and Gifts.

We all won’t be millionaires. We all won’t own big businesses and corporations. We all won’t start big churches and ministries. To think we shall is to live in delusion. To teach it is to perpetrate a lie. Unfortunately many people have been sold that lie and try to live it with great frustration.

The media plays on human greed by telling us stories about super successful people, stirring desire for money and achievement in us. However, the truth is that no matter how much we long for such success, if we don’t have the grace and gift combination to attract that level of success, we won’t have it. It is that simple. Whoever tells you that God wants us all to be millionaires is telling you a lie. It is just as erroneous as saying that giving of money to a church or ministry will make you rich. Yes, it makes someone rich, but it is definitely not you doing the giving; it is probably those doing the collecting. If you want to attract money in your life, do what normal people do: work and invest for it.
