Focus Chapters:

  • Proverbs 25-29

 

Standout Verse(s):

Proverbs 25:6-7 NLT

Don’t demand an audience with the king
or push for a place among the great.
It’s better to wait for an invitation to the head table
than to be sent away in public disgrace.

 

Observation (s):

  1. When you are anointed don’t rush the process to get amongst the great.

    Don’t demand an audience with the king
    or push for a place among the great.

  2. Trust that the process that God is taking you through will end with you getting an invitation to head the table.

    It’s better to wait for an invitation to the head table
    than to be sent away in public disgrace.

Application:

I hate to wait particularly when I know that I am anointed. However, I was recently reminded of something. David was anointed king and then sent back to the field, as a shepherd. He did not leave the field until a recommendation was made to King Saul and he was sent for. Even then, despite his anointing, David did not get the recognition that his anointing deserved until he kill Goliath and started leading Israel into battles. Later on, much later on, he became king, fulfilling the calling that God’s anointing had placed on his life.

Can you imagine the reaction if David had headed to the palace the minute he was anointed? He would have probably been mocked or killed! He would never have had the seasons to prepare for battling Goliath, through his battles with the lion and bear who came for his father’s sheep. Even if Saul had let him live, he would probably have never gotten the chance to fulfil the purpose that God had set out for him or had the opportunity to enter the circle and gain the respect and loyalty of his peers, making his transition easier, when his moment came.

Do not be preemptive and force for a place at the head of the table. Trust the purpose that God has placed on your life and the process that He has set out to get you to it. God’s way is definitely worth the wait!

Let your eagle SOAR!

image

About a year ago someone hugged me tightly and said, “You know what you remind me of? An eagle! Girl, go forth and whatever you do, spread your wings and soar!” At the time I didn’t think much of it but as I sit back and do some introspection, I can truly say that God has been demonstrating to me how to unfurl and use my wings.

One thing I have learned is that God allows every incident in your life to happen to teach/prepare you. A few years ago I had a bad case of stage fright whenever I spoke in public. I also felt that my ability to write had been nullified. I was left empty. But this is something you need to know. Sometimes, when God intends to bless you, He slowly empties you. He begins to remove any impediments to your blessing. Only then will He begin to fill you up.
