Scripture: Acts 2:25-31, 34-35
Acts 2:25-30 is a prophetic word uttered first by one of those lowly individuals in the Old Testament. David was the lowest in his family. He was the youngest, and received all the unappealing assignments nobody else wanted. Everyone else got a large sheep herd while he received only a few. Large sheep herds meant they could kill lambs and eat well, because it would not matter if they lost one. But not David. He was a young man of great, great humility. In Samuel’s search to anoint a king, he had to pass over every older brother until Jessie brought David. Acts 2:25-31 says, “For David says concerning Him: ‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face, For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken. Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Hades, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.’ Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades,…” Verses 34-35 say, “For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’” Why does God choose the lowly? In order to show Himself great and demonstrate that He can make their enemies their footstool. He takes the lowly, transforms them and uses them to accomplish His purposes. May God cause us to arise and see our personal destiny with the eyes of faith!
