October 22 , 2008 - Devotional: I Know What You Said But...

"Now the Lord said to Samuel, 'How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel.
Fill your horn with oil, and go, I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided for Myself a king among his sons'.
And Samuel said, 'How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me.'
But the Lord said, 'Take a heifer with you, and say, 'I have come to sacrifice to the Lord'.'"
(1 Samuel 16:1-2)

I KNOW WHAT YOU SAID BUT...

When the Lord sends you He's already prepared the way. He has seen all the obstacles, anticipated all the problems...it is a done deal!

All it requires from us is faith - faith not in ourselves, or our circumstances, or our bank account, but faith in the Lord God Almighty.

God clearly told Samuel what to do - Stop mourning for Saul, get your jar of anointing oil and go to the family of Jesse whom I will show you who I have chosen to become Israel's next king.

Samuel and my response was, "But Saul will hear", or "If I tell them that God loves them they will reject me!" or "What if they won't listen?" or "My money won't make a difference, that person has lived on the streets for years."

You will notice a "BUT" on God's part in today's Scripture.."BUT the Lord said, 'take a heifer with you.'
.It may seem He wasn't listening to Samuel's concerns but on the contrary He didn't skip a beat in His plan to build Samuel's confidence in Him.

It was like He was saying, "Go, I've got it all under control, I love you, I won't forsake you, just trust me, I don't lie and I have a great plan for you, one specifically designed by Me tailor made for you."

God has a plan for you my friend, a plan drafted in love, a plan devised before the creation of the world. You're name is in the Title - You are the main character - You are in the credits of a love story, written, produced, directed and starred in by God.

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
