1 Sam 16:1-3
Now the LORD said to Samuel,"How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons." 2 And Samuel said, "How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me."But the LORD said, "Take a heifer with you, and say,'I have come to sacrifice to the LORD.' 3 Then invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do; you shall anoint for Me the one I name to you." NKJV
A sacrifice could only be offered in the temple. But when Jesse became the standard, the order, the benchmark and the model that God needed for the earth he converted Jesse`s house to a sanctuary—a holy place of worship. When God was looking for a king he sent Samuel to Jesse`s house. Dear friend, let your house become God's need for the earth.
How long will you mourn for Saul? Refuse to mourn over past disappointments. Maintain the attitude of no shrinking back, do not be intimidated by hardness and build fortified
mentalities that prevent fragmentation. Having done all stand and build until your house becomes God's need for the earth.
The escalation of a crisis signifies the increasing proximity of the kingdom…..be encouraged and stand out.
