Nov 1 Devotion: Never Mind What Others Think or Say!

I Sam. 16:10-13– Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.

11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.

12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

Far too many Christians live a defeated life because they walk in fear of what others may say or think about them! The Bible says; “the fear of man bringeth a snare”. May we stop living if fear and start living unto Christ!  –Pastor Doug Foster
