When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, “Surely YeHoVaH’s anointed stands here before YeHoVaH .”
But the YeHoVaH said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. YeHoVaH does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but YeHoVaH looks at the heart.”

Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “YeHoVaH has not chosen this one either.” Jesse then had Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, “Nor has YeHoVaH chosen this one.”  Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “YeHoVaH has not chosen these.”
So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?” “There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.” Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.” So he sent for him and had him brought in. He was glowing with health and had a fine appearance and handsome features. Then YeHoVaH said, “Rise and anoint him; this is the one.” So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of YeHoVaH came powerfully upon David. Samuel then went to Ramah.”
” 1Samuel 16:6-13

I love the Cinderella story. One of its lessons is if we develop the right spirit of humility, no matter how remote and covered we are, one day YeHoVaH will lift us up. Looking at the story of David, he was least expected for kingship by his family. When Samuel asked, “Are these all the sons you have?”  David’s father response was,  “There is still the youngest,” “He is tending the sheep.”

The two words David’s father felt would disqualify David were the very words that qualified him,  “”the YOUNGEST and he is TENDING SHEEP.”” YeHoVaH is asking me to tell everyone listening or perhaps your are reading this message, if you feel insignificant, feel small, and people laugh at you that you are too young, and tending sheep because they think you are too feeble to be a warrior. Don’t be discourage, one day YeHoVaH will create an opportunity YOU ALONE FITS IN PERFECTLY.  Tending the sheep is no weakling, that career is not weakling, that small church is not weakling.
    One thing we must do when we at the backstage of life activity, and nobody attach importance to our lives is to keep the right heart (the heart that loves YeHoVaH) and humble heart. If our heart is right no matter where life hides us YeHoVaH will promote us. YeHoVaH found David, YeHoVaH will find you! That shoe is made for you alone, the enemy may try to hide it, but because its your turn, the devil has no voice over your enthronement.
