ODM DAILY 22 September 2022 – HE WAS ANOINTED THREE TIMES – 2
TOPIC: HE WAS ANOINTED THREE TIMES – 2
Remember that the anointing of Judah is the anointing of acceptance. David received the anointing of acceptance; Saul on the other hand only received the anointing of appointment (1 Samuel 10:27). The third anointing was for David to inclusively be king over Israel because the nation was DIVIDED at that time! Now the question is: Why did David have to wait seven whole years before sitting on the throne as king yet he had already received the anointing of appointment via prophet Samuel?
It actually took Jesus Christ thirty years of preparation, and He executed the job in only three years. For David, it was seven years of intense preparation, full of temptations all of which David overcame. He was successful in his kingly rule because he had acquired the character of a king! THE DELAY WAS BECAUSE DAVID HAD TO UNDERGO DRILLING AND PROOF EXERCISES TO BE FULLY TRAINED AND STRATEGICALLY FIT FOR THE POSITION. He had to be approved of both God and men.
To be anointed means God has seen the heart in you, but character is only acquired. Jesus too underwent drilling and proof exercises after which He was crowned King of kings! When God delays, He is TRAINING YOU FOR A GREAT TESTIMONY AHEAD! In Exodus 13: 17, God led the people not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. Wow! He led people through a LONGER ROUTE instead of A SHORTER ROUTE! So, when the journey seems longer and your prayers are delayed, just look up and trust Him! He knows the way and He has the plan! Hold on and hold out! You will never end in shame!
