All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their commander. About four hundred men were with him.
1 Samuel 22:2
1 Samuel 22:2
Do you seem less or lower on the social ladder than the people around you? Are you just getting out of jail, a bad relationship or serious sickness that has hindered you? Are you bankrupt, living from paycheck to paycheck, homeless, fatherless or motherless? Does it seem you are of no use to anyone?
Well rest in the fact that God uses people who are less attractive intellectually, physically and financially to do His will. You don’t have to be a scholar, a tycoon or a socialite to be of service to The Lord.
Look at the list of qualifications possessed by these men who came to David and were made ready for the greatest era of The Israelites. They were in distress, in debt and discontented. But yet they were valuable to David.
You are valuable for the service of The Lord. No matter what your situation is. All you have to do is want to serve The Lord from your heart and he’ll do the rest.
To God be the Glory for Him looking way back to the end of the line, reaching down to the bottom of the pile and going to the darkest areas of our lives to bring us forward for His service.
Matthew 19:30; Philippians 4:12-13; Matthew 5:3; Luke 4:18
