TAKE YOUR PLACE-2
1 Samuel 11:12 “And the people said unto Samuel, Who [is] he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? bring the men, that we may put them to death.”
1 Samuel 11:14 “Then said Samuel to the people, Come, and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there.”
1Samuel 11:15 “And all the people went to Gilgal; and there they made Saul king before the LORD in Gilgal; and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before the LORD; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.”
God doesn’t just pick a man and install him on the throne because of what he has today but rather because of what he has the capacity to become. That is why all through scriptures, you’ll see that most of the people God chooses always feels inadequate.
Look at men like Moses, Joshua, Saul, David, Solomon, Paul and the other Apostles. People even called the Apostles unlearned or illiterate yet God chose them.
People couldn’t believe that “common” fishermen, farmers, tax collectors and so on could grow to such an extent that they can be teaching sound doctrines to Teachers of the Law who has spent all their years in school.
Men like Moses told God he couldn’t speak. Joshua was dangerously afraid. Saul ran away. Solomon doesn’t even have any physical attribute to qualify him for the throne. Like Jephthah, their mothers didn’t enter their father’s houses through the proper channel.
It is not as if God doesn’t know what he was doing, it was simply because God is futuristic. He has already seen the end from the beginning. He already knows the capacity of the men he chooses.
Why most men eventually fails, is that many refuse to grow into the role. They didn’t grow to occupy their places. Put differently, they didn’t develop the necessary capacity and wherewithal required to maintain the office.
To be continued…
