God had amazing plans for David’s life but unfortunately no one saw the amazing potential God put in him.
When Samuel visited his family to choose a king, his father literally forgot about him! Samuel had to press Jesse if there was anyone else! Crazy right.
His brothers didn’t see a thing.
(1 Samuel 17:28)
And then David was brought before king Saul because of the way he spoke about Goliath. He was fearless and courageous. But even then, king Saul didn’t see what God saw.
“And Saul said to David, You are not able to go to fight against this Philistine. You are only an adolescent, and he has been a warrior from his youth.”
1 Samuel 17:33 AMPC
“You are not able to go to fight”
He didn’t even know David and what he had gone through till that point. But he told David, he couldn’t fight the giant!
Man saw nothing when they looked at David but God saw a mighty warrior and that meant everything.
I touched on a bit of this in my previous post, we need to be careful who we allow to define who we are. God is the true source and He knows who we really are.
You need to break free of words, ideas and other people’s perceptions of who you are that have kept you living below your true potential. It’s clear from David’s story that no man really knows your true potential. They may have an idea but they don’t know the full potential God has put in you.
But breaking free can only be done by the power of God. You need the Holy Spirit to come in and reveal the true picture of who God created you to be and He will if you ask Him.
As you take the step be assured the Lord is with you. He desperately wants you to know who you really are. He wants you to know and experience the amazing things He planned for you more than you will ever know.
