Fresh Hope – 3rd October 2020

It doesn’t matter what you’re doing right now, it’s what God has planned for you that matters.

David was a shepherd boy with a job that to some people would have been boring. Looking after sheep day in and day out. Yet God saw something great in David, He saw a willingness to be FAITHFUL in what he was doing and LOYAL to who he was looking after.

Faithful and loyal are two qualities that God loves. You can be faithful without being loyal and you can be loyal without being faithful…BUT when the two go hand in hand, that gets God’s attention!
David was faithful in the mundane, he dealt with anything that threatened his sheep (he killed a lion and a bear) .. he in turn took on a giant, when everyone else ran and he became a great King. 
Today, you may feel your lot in life, your job, your day in day out, is pretty unimportant. Don’t think that. God is watching. 

When I started by saying it doesn’t matter what you’re doing right now, it actually does. Because God is looking at your day in day out, He’s looking at your heart and attitude, He’s looking to see if you’re being faithful and loyal with that which has been entrusted to you right now. 

David could never have probably dreamt his future, when he was sitting on a hillside from dawn till dusk and we don’t know what God has in store for us. So what you’re doing right now, isn’t what you always will be doing, as long as you stay faithful. God was watching David and preparing a great future for him and God is watching you!
