1 Samuel 16: 4 - 5, 11
Vs 4 - And Samuel did that which the Lord spake and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said comest thou peaceably?
Vs 5 - And he said, peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD; sanctify yourselves, and come to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, (excluding David) and called them to the sacrifice (emphasis mine)
Vs 11 - And Samuel said unto Jesse, are here all thy children? And he said there remaineth yet the youngest and behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, send and fetch him, for we will not sit down till he come hither.
What will be will be, whatever God has purposed concerning you; nobody can hinder or frustrate it. I used to think it was Jesse alone that forgot about David. In vs 4, Samuel consecrated the sons of Jesse. The seer did not ask if these were all Jesse's son? The prophet who discerned the coming of Saul at Zuph was completely oblivion of the fact that the anointed was not amongst the consecrated. (1 Sam 9: 15 - 16).
Beloveth, you may not be amongst the favourites for the exalted position, the discussion and gists in town may center around the Eliabs and Abinadabs, notwithstanding, our God who does not operate by human agenda will turn the table and organize your manifestation and coronation in the midst of them all.
The fact that both Jesse and Samuel had about 24 hours to discern, and remember that the anointed was not even invited, yet forgot is a pointer that man may err in their judgement but God never failed. He did not fail David, He will not fail you.
Contrast quickly the story of David and Joseph. While David was the one overseeing the sheep, Joseph and Benjamin were not allowed to be involved in shepherding by their father - Jacob. Alas, what the brethen of David thought was a burden became the preparation for David's enthronement - I prophesy, the Almighty will use every situation to work in your favour.
Every situation physically was pointing to the fact that David has been disqualified by both Jesse and his other sons. Samuel also would have anointed Eliab if not that the Lord showed up just in time. You may presently be forgotten and written off by men but the Lord who showed up for David 'Just in time' will show up for you. Every agenda from hell to deny you of your blessings are frustrated in Jesus mighty Name.
All that was needed was a gentle whisper from above to Samuel. The Lord spoke and disqualified all the seven sons. Their credentials and competencies were questioned and a verdict of 'not suitable' was delivered. This season, the Lord will speak on your behalf, disqualify every pretender and usurper collaborating with the forces of darkness to deny you. I do not know what God will do but I know He will frustrate them. In Egypt, there was no one fit for the Prime Minister role except Joseph because the Glory of the Lord that lifted Jacob also restrained every contender from manifesting. This Season, the Lord will restrain, silence and hide every contender to your next level.
Today, your Samuel will hear the voice of the Lord. I decree and declare, every Samuels, raised up by God to anoint you to your next Level, will arise, will be prompted by the Holy Spirit and locate you for fresh oil.
Finally, when David appeared in vs 12 - 14, 18 - everything; his height, size, completion, speech, inflection in his voice worked in his favour - beloved, everything about you will work together for God to settle you.
Your time for settlement is here. Divine settlement cometh in Jesus Name. Amen.
Shalom and Blessings!!!
