"Well, yes, there’s the runt. But he’s out tending the sheep." I Samuel 16:11 (TM)
Yep, that was David – the runt. That’s who God chose as King of Israel: the runt son of an insignificant family in the backwater town of Bethlehem. God makes a habit of using the youngest, smallest, poorest, least educated, and handicapped to become his representative. I believe that one of the enemy’s greatest weapons is self-doubt:
- I’m not gifted
- I’m not smart enough
- I not wealthy
- I’m not anything special
Don’t be deceived. You are just who God is looking for. Remember the runt David.
