1Samuel 17:30 “And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.”
You can never meet Saul if you don’t walk away from Eliab! What makes walking away most times difficult is that some of the things we need to walk away from, are things that gives us comfort.
Acts 7:21 “And when he was cast out Pharaoh’s daughter took him up and NOURISHED HIM FOR HER OWN SON.”
Acts 7:22 “And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.”
Acts 7:23 “And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to VISIT HIS BRETHREN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.” (Emphasis mine)
Beloved, when I read my Bible, I use to wonder how easy it would be to do certain things. In our contemporary days, what happened to Moses is like a world renowned Billionaire taking an abandoned child in; adopt him, send him to Harvard University, giving him the best training under heaven. Afterwards, securing for him one of the best jobs under heaven.
All these were done for the child over a period of thirty nine years, only for him to wake up on his fortieth birthday and decided to “turn away” from all those comfort to be with his original parents in a slum in one of the remote places on the planet!
If you were Moses, could you have done that? How many people can walk away from a Palace to a slum? It is very easy to read it in the Bible and say Moses did well but in reality can you attempt it?
Friend that is the stuff of champions! Great men and women always walk away from something they love in order to gain something glorious and destiny fulfilling.
Our “Eliabs” does not necessarily have to be a man; it could be a well-paying job or career. It could be a place or even a habit!
