So he sent and brought him in…And the LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”…And so it was…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.

1st Sam. 16: 12-23

David understood spiritual authority. He didn’t try to usurp the king’s throne even though he knew he was anointed for it. He exhibited this and more attributes during his service under King Saul.
Goal: where you are doesn’t define where you are going. When people comment on who they think you are, they are merely describing what they see. Don’t make it your definition. Peter began to sink when he started seeing more of his environment than his destination. Work yourself out of your present position on the job. If you only do what you are paid to do, you’ll keep getting that amount. Work from the future.

People person: learn to work with people publicly that you won’t socialize with personally. God sometimes blesses us via people we don’t even like. Increasing capacity in this facet is seeing situations not just in black and white but in shades of grey.

Way forward: God won’t send you to a job as a problem solver if you would add to the problem yourself. Nobody promotes someone who causes confusion and chaos amongst colleagues.

Team Hermit: work with everybody whilst becoming involved with nobody. If the enemy can limit you to a clique, he can limit your usefulness. Your creativity may be bigger than the clique you are in. Come out of the box if you want God to enlarge you.

Royal Chant: there should be the shout of a king on your inside at always, a place in your heart for God especially when it seems all hell breaks loose. Like David, get artistic when “Saul” gets sarcastic. When you keep your song near you, the devil gets miffed.

Perception: down the line, David knew he had to thread with caution as he saw that he was becoming envied by his boss. He applied wisdom in his behavior and didn’t lose sight of the one that put him there. (1st Sam. 18:14)

God gave us a principle in creation by resting on the seventh day after six days of prior work. The rest is well deserved only when you can look back at what was done and call it “very good”. Give your best. Fit the profile.
