“Now go and say to my servant David, ‘This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has declared: I took you from tending sheep in the pasture and selected you to be the leader of my people Israel. I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have destroyed all your enemies before your eyes. Now I will make your name as famous as anyone who has ever lived on the earth!
- David’s story begun with him tending sheep. By the time God was through with him, David became the leader of Israel, God’s people..
“Now go and say to my servant David, ‘This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has declared: I took you from tending sheep in the pasture and selected you to be the leader of my people Israel.
- God was with David, wherever he went and always destroyed David’s enemies.
I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have destroyed all your enemies before your eyes.
- God’s warning is fundamental – sin is enticed when we do wrong, however we are called to resist and reign over it. Sin is given human-like characteristics.
Now I will make your name as famous as anyone who has ever lived on the earth!
Our doubts about our future are oftentimes the byproduct of our insecurities and the perceived inadequacies of our beginnings. The truth is, your beginning does not determine your end. God does!
David came from a simple beginning! He begun life as a shepherd boy, the youngest son of his father. Yet through his walk with God, he was selected and progressed from the pastures tending his father’s sheep to the a palace, leading Israel, God’s chosen people. David was also confident in the assurance that God would always take care of his enemies. Through this, he was assured victory and the promise that he would be famous. We all know David, so obviously God kept his promise!
Don’t focus on your beginning. Focus on God who has the ability to shape that humble or small beginning into a big and life-changing future and end.

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
