Daily Devotional: Your Family Background Notwithstanding
Memorise: And Saul answered and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou so to me? 1 Samuel 9:21 KJV
Text: 1 Samuel 9:17-21
Your star will shine out of obscurity because by divine visitation, God will give you a testimony that will humble those who have despised you due to your root and family background. God is not going to work by number or your level of earthly blessedness. He sits in heaven and will do whatsoever pleases Him. I pray it will please the Lord to elevate you to a height that will announce your glory to the whole world.
The story of Saul who was anointed the first king in Israel is must read and a wholesome lesson for those seeking greatness. God took Him from the least family in the tribe of Benjamin , gave him a change of heart and equipped Him with the right spirit to rule His people. Getting to the top is essentially a function of divine favour and grace. Your family background notwithstanding, if you will obtain favour from God this day, your story will shock your mockers and household enemies. You need God to be great regardless of your certificate or earthly connections. Saul was only connected to God’s anointing and He began to reign and rule over Israel. Ask the Lord to deliver you from fruitless labour by giving you room to shine out of that darkness and failure. Ask for a new life that can only come when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Reject the idols of your parents and stop sacrificing to demons. The glory of your rising can only come from above. Let God help you and your life and family will never remain the same.
Prayer Point: Father, please deliver me from every fruitless labour. Take me from this present location and set me up on high far above failure and all forms of poverty.
