Read: 1 Samuel 16: 1-23
“So, Saul said to his servants, “provide me now a man who can play well and bring him to me” (1 Samuel 16:17).
Preparation of Circumstances: The last area is the preparation of the circumstances that will usher you to the place of your assignment. God began preparing the circumstances needed for David to emerge as king when He rejected King Saul as king over Israel, due to an act of disobedience on his part. Next, He set David up to fight with Goliath. Then He began training him for life in the royal court by setting up work for him there as the King’s armorbearer. “So, David came to Saul and stood before him. And he loved him greatly and became his armorbearer… And so, it was, whenever the distressingspirit from God was upon Saul, that David would take a harp and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him” (1 Samuel 16:21 & 23).
Similarly, preparation of your circumstances will be part of God’s plan to get you to the place of your assignment. God is busy working behind the scenes of your life to prepare the circumstances that will enable you to emerge and succeed in what He has planned for you. He has information known to Him only. Your circumstances may look bad now, but be encouraged, because God may just be preparing you for your assignment.
Refuse to allow what you see dictate what you believe. Do not judge by what your eyes see, but by what you hear in the spirit. Do not label any occurrence in your life as a coincidence or happenstance. God is for you. He is already ahead of you rearranging the circumstances to favor you. You must be sensitive and totally submissive to His leading, else you may get discouraged and give up even before you begin.
As Jesus (The word) works in you to change your character, the Holy Spirit is bringing about His fruit to bear in your life. Develop your competence and track your circumstances. In the fullness of time, you will emerge in the place of your greatness.
