Anointed for your call
In the book of 1samuel 10, the Israelites asked God to give them a king over them. God is the only king and there is no king before Him or after Him. But the people insisted on the king to lead them in battle.
God agreed and chose a king for them. God spoke through the prophet Samuel and selected a king for them.
But before Saul was chosen as king , He couldn’t become king with His old heart.
He couldn’t lead God’s people with his own heart. He was anointed and chosen by God.
1 samuel 10: 6
At that time the spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person.
Its God that will change you into a new person and your old ways and the old people will be unfamiliar with it. Your past cannot carry this blessing. Your old thoughts cannot carry this new blessing. The spirit of God will change your mindset, your heart. The way you think, feel and see things. Because if you are your old self you will question every move, you will seek man’s opinion than Gods.
You need God’s spirit to do God’s work.
Then he said to me, “This is what the LORD says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.
1 samuel 10: As Saul turned and started to leave, God gave Him a new heart, and all Samuel’s signs were fulfilled that day.
If God has spoken concerning your call, your purpose , be assured that It will surely come to pass. And He has given you what it takes to accomplish His plans. And thats why He has released the prophecy over you.
You didn’t choose yourself, He chose you. As long as you continue to walk in His will , your time will surely come.
Be assured that the prophecy spoken over your calling, your purpose will come to pass.
When Samuel prophesied to Saul, some of the prophecy was about instructions which Saul had to obey , in order for the word God has spoken over His life to come to pass.
1 samuel 10:7
And let it be that when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands ; for God is with you.
Not everyone will be happy with the prophecy concerning your life. Not everyone will agree with the prophecy coming to pass. And not everyone will qualify you. But that’s ok because God is the author and finisher of your faith. The beginning and the end and He has qualified you.
Some people were not happy with Saul becoming King
Not everyone will recognise you and believe you have changed. Those who have seen your old ways will be unfamiliar with your change. People will question whether its really you.
You will be surrounded with those with the same vision. God will connect you with those who have also been transformed and walking with Him.
1 samuel 10:26
26 When Saul returned to his home at Gibeah, a group of men whose hearts God had touched went with him.
Glory be to God.
