The Spiritual Curriculum Vitae


1 Samuel 17: 34 – ‘And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock’.

Have you ever imagined that you would require a C.V. for the things of the Spirit? I also had never actually considered it until this moment. Since it is just a C.V. some of us are already ready to brag about being Christians for over 10 years and what not. But your Christian C.V. is not predicated on how long, but how well.

At the time of being anointed as future king of Israel, David is said to have been 15 years old. In terms of how long, he was not qualified for the honour. But, in terms of how well, he was must than qualified. At that age, he had killed the king of the jungle and a bear.

Not only had he defeated forces that were supposedly higher than him, David was advertised for his skill in music. In 1 Samuel 16: 18, the Bible records that one of the young men spoke up, “I know someone. I’ve seen him myself: the son of Jesse of Bethlehem, an excellent musician. He’s also courageous, of age, well-spoken, and good-looking. And God is with him.”

David wasn’t looking to become king when he killed the lion and the bear. He wasn’t looking to become king when the young man that told the king about him must have heard him play. He didn’t ask to be the only one with enough understanding of his identity in I AM THAT I AM. But he was.

A lot of us want to do exploits for God, but what are we doing with our hands? What are we doing pending God’s assignments for us? Here’s the funny thing, whatever we do pending God’s assignment is also part of the assignment. Because we would have been unable to perform when the big task comes if we had not gone through the process.
