Saul the first king of Israel lived during a special season in his nation. The age of the prophets had come to an end and the season of Kings was just about to dawn. The nation demanded for a king and nothing less would satisfy. Saul fit the part. He came from a noble family, had favour with Samuel, had servants, resources and received a prophecy to the same. He was a strong, tall, handsome man that stood head and shoulders above every other man.
This season was customized for Saul. This was his “Now” moment and he reached out to grab it without hesitation. He soon began to talk like a king and demand that people follow him without batting an eye. He mobilized an army and begun forming a government while his peers were still counting sheep. He was eventually accepted as the first king of Israel riding on the above facts without an election or anything else. This was his moment.
There are special seasons customized for everyone alive today. Your ability to identify those now moments is critical to attaining the success you need in life. Not every day is for everyone. There comes a time when everything falls into place to allow you to thrive and shine. A day will dawn with your name on it. A time comes when only you can fit the bill. Identify your moment as a time to seize your opportunity. “Now” doesn’t fit everyone every time. There are times made for others and some made for you. Don’t let your season pass without you attaining your destiny. Reach forth in your now and make it count. Don’t hold back or shy away. When your moment arrives step up to the platform and deliver the goods like no other. Don’t pass the ball in your crunch time. Make that shot that will forever change your situation.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Samuel 15:1-3, 15-16, 10:6-7
Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now, therefore, hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
Dear God, today I identify my special moment. Grant me the grace to attain those moments in my daily life. Even as I live, I am persuaded that this is my Season to shine brighter than my peers. I am thriving now more than I’ve ever thrived before in Jesus’ Name. Amen
