Joel Osteen 5th February 2024 Daily Devotional
Joel Osteen Devotional 5th February 2024 – Today’s Word with Joel & Victoria Osteen. Read Monday Daily Devotional Message by Joel Osteen.
Therefore Saul sent messengers to Jesse, and said, “Send me your son David, who is with the sheep.”
1 Samuel 16:19, NKJV
When King Saul suffered from bouts of depression and spiritual attack, his staff told him he needed a young man named David to play music for him and it would help him feel better. The Scripture says that Saul sent the message to Jesse, not to David. That’s significant because Jesse was the very one who left David out in the shepherds’ field when Samuel came to anoint one of his sons as the next king. Jesse had discounted him, overlooked him, thought he wasn’t talented enough. Imagine Jesse seeing the king’s officials at the door calling for the son he didn’t think would amount to much.
God sees you. Others may push you down, but God will lift you up. Others may leave you out, but God will call you in. Others may ridicule you, but God will vindicate you. Just do as David did and keep being faithful in your shepherds’ field; don’t complain or slack off or talk badly about someone. Be your best when no one is watching, and promotion will come knocking at your door.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You have given me gifts and a calling that no one can take from me. Thank You that You are taking me through a preparation process and will lift me up and vindicate me. I believe that I will pass the faithfulness test of being my best and get to where You are taking me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
