God is Preparing You
David, part three

Odvcs001.wmf (82826 bytes)God was not with King Saul anymore because King Saul had turned away from God. King Saul was a troubled man. Oh, if he had only taken his problems to the One Who said, "Let not your heart be troubled" (John 14:1). King Saul should have trusted in God.

Muels012.wmf (3718 bytes)Saul looked for someone who could play beautiful music to comfort him. Someone told him of a shepherd boy who could sing and play on the harp. Can you guess who that was? It was David! David had a reputation as the sweet psalmist of Israel. David might have thought no one saw him, no one heard him, no one cared, but not only was God watching, others could see him, too! Do you do your dishes, your homework, your chores, your jobs for the eyes of God and men? Do they take note of your lovely work and your wonderful attitude? Keep doing them well and they will notice in time.

Do not despise or hate the little duties of life. It is often in these things that God builds character and makes boys into men and girls into ladies. Be faithful and dependable where you are. "Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, and He will exalt you in due time." God is preparing you for your tomorrow. His setting and situation and design for you are perfect. He makes no mistakes. "All things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).

Read about David in the service of King Saul in 1 Samuel 16:14-23.
