DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
David was Anointed
1 Sam. 16:1-13
Although David had been anointed as king over Israel, King Saul remained the political head. Saul no longer had the usual spiritual relevance and influence. The kingdom had been given to the man after God’s own heart. In the selection process, Samuel almost gave what belonged to David to his older brothers because they looked impressive to be considered for the kingship position. Human beings can only judge the appearance of men, only God sees the heart. Believers should be watchful in the spirit not to be carried away by our expectations of how God should do His work. The spirit of God came upon David immediately he was anointed by Prophet Samuel and his status changed in the spirit from that day. Oil is often used to symbolise God’s anointing and power, but not the anointing itself.
Point of Emphasis: You need to be anointed by God in order to accomplish great things for Him.
Prayer Point: O God release Your anointing upon me to fulfil Your mandate for my life.
