Are you hiding amongst the Baggage? 1 Samuel 10

Standard

You no longer have to hide!

You no longer have to hide!

I’m not talking about Michael Kors or Coach! I’m talking about the things of old. I have been told twice that I am a new creation and although we all are; it did not sink into my spirit until I read 1 Samuel Ch. 10. In short, Israel wanted a King and even in their rebellion God gave them a king. King Saul was His anointed and appointed. When Samuel informed Saul of his new appointment he prophesied to him and said, 6 At that time the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person.

God had chosen him, anointed him, placed His spirit upon him, and gave him a new heart. But, watch this! As Samuel began to present the new king. Verse 22 reads: And finally Saul son of Kish was chosen from among them. But when they looked for him, he had disappeared! 22 So they asked the Lord, “Where is he?” They could not find Saul. And the Lord replied, “He is hiding among the baggage.” Are the people asking, “Where is he?” “Where is she? Even the King was hiding among the baggage. There are still times in my life when I run like Saul and I hide among the baggage. I hide behind fear, guilt, shame, insecurity, rejection, hurts, and pains. Are you hiding behind any baggage today. The truth is, God has chosen us, anointed us, placed His spirit upon us through salvation, and has created a new heart within us. There is no need to hide anymore! Verse 23 says, So they found him and brought him out, and he stood head and shoulders above anyone else.

If you know anyone like Saul today, please help bring them out through encouragement, prayer, and compassion. God’s Kings and Queens no longer have to hide among the baggage. We’re free through Christ Jesus!!!!! Hallelujah! Amen!

Counting it All Joy,
Minister Lucas
