Have you ever gone online to Monster.com or another website in search of a job posting?
Has your heart started to race as you come across a particular job title, company, or description of responsibilities that excites you…only to have your heart come back into your chest and insecurity sink in when you come across the educational and technical qualifications?
Either it be through a season of job hunting, establishing relationships, or even fulfilling the call of God in your life…at one time or another, we have felt overlooked and disqualified.
In 1 Samuel 16, a little boy named David must’ve been going through the same emotions: his father’s house will produce the next king over God’s people, but when the roll call for his father’s sons is announced…his name is left out. Little did David know that being left out by man was the perfect opportunity to be selected by God.
Verse 13 shows us the heartbeat of this devotional: in every moment that you may be overlooked by man, it is imperative to remember that out of the masses, you’ve been handpicked by God.
Be encouraged today.
Your résumé may not be perfect. Your technical skills may not be excellent (yet). On paper, the person next to you may seem more qualified. But guess what? I would rather be chosen by Jesus than qualified by man.
