COME OUT OF THE CROWD!
1 Samuel 17:26-32 (32) – And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. (KJV)
Read: 1 Samuel 17
“Come out of the crowd” means to be different, unique, and outstanding among others. In verse 8 of today’s Bible reading, Goliath boasted, “Choose a man to fight me”, and fear gripped the entire nation of Israel so that no one could move around for days. But the young and vibrant David stood out from the crowd to confront Goliath without armour and eventually kill him.
The world is in a time where nations are constantly faced with Goliath. There are ongoing economic, leadership, financial, security, and spiritual oppressions against the people. Therefore, the case of David presents a push for this generation of God’s children to arise and take their stand against all forms of Goliathic activities.
How can God’s children come out of the crowd?
1. Be an ambassador for Christ: In a corrupt society where immorality is paramount, be unique in your conduct. Through this, the nations will know you are of God.
2. Be vibrant and make an impact: Spread the good works of your Father in heaven. Preach the gospel and help the needy.
3. Be prayerful and fearless: Let holiness and prayer be your arsenal. With these, you will be confident to confront and conquer.
Beloved, the result of standing out from the crowd is that God can count on you. This makes you the envy of others, just as David became king and enjoyed God’s presence. My prayer for you is that you will continually wait on God and reflect His glory to the world, in Jesus’ name.
Hymn: Standing on the promises of Christ my King – Russell Kelso Carter (1886)
1. Father, please empower me and make me a divine solution to my world.
1. I receive divine grace to be sold out, encouraged, and always standing out for Christ, no matter the circumstance.
2. I decree! Henceforth, where others crawl, I walk. Where they walk, I fly higher and overflow with blessings and irrevocable favour.
3. Please pray for me!
YOU SHALL REACH THE TOP, AND THE WORLD SHALL COME TO YOUR RISING.
