This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Transcription:

Today I want you to know that God can take a simple role and position you with it for greater.

Sometimes we see our role as simple and miss the fact that our role is very purposeful. This was surely the case with David’s life. After David had been anointed king by God, he would fulfill various roles that did not resemble a king.

For example, David often played the harp for Saul because as the spirit of the Lord left Saul, he went into bouts of deep depression. Therefore, David would play the harp for him to soothe his mind.

In another instance, David was a shepherd boy where most of his life’s work was tending sheep. In fact, there was a time when all David did was go back and forth between playing the harp for Saul and tending sheep. Meanwhile, David’s brothers appeared to have a more prominent role as they served in the army.

However, one day David’s father sent David to the battlefield to bring lunch to his brothers. It was this moment and all of those moments prior that seemed so simple that positioned David perfectly for one of the greatest accomplishments of his life: defeating Goliath.

Although you might feel like you’re in a simple role that’s not necessarily leading anywhere, have faith that God is leading you to greater and cling to my favorite Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
