Read: 1 Samuel 15
“Samuel then said, ‘You may be small in your own sight, but you are head of the tribes of Israel—Adonai anointed you king over Israel!’” (1 Samuel 15:17 CJSB)
Always, each must remember that God has anointed him and her to be perfectly, communally special. You are unique; and, even when you believe yourself to be small in your own sight, that does not change your yet-to-be-realized spiritual magnitude. God is always poised to build deep and tall. Among His children, the everlasting to everlasting God will never sound shallow depths nor disproportionately make one wider than the whole. The faithfully surrendered become invisible as they carry the Gospel to the uttermost. The plans God has for the parts are complimentary to the sum, as the sum vividly reflects the Face of God. Human epiphany is a product of asking submissive questions. “Who are You, Lord?” And, “Who have You anointed me to be?” And, “How are You respectfully fitting me with Your community?” To doubt, is to deny. To force, is to exist as one unknown to God. To submissively believe, is to find oneself in the atmosphere of spiritual conception, and gestation, and birth, and growth, and maturity. These are those visible to God. Always, in holy humility, surrender your sight to the stature God has anointed you to be.
