1 Samuel 13:14 (NLT): But now your kingdom must end, for the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart. The Lord has already appointed him to be the leader of his people, because you have not kept the Lord’s command.”
Kwame really wanted to ace this interview. He was nervous, it was his first major interview. So, to aid his preparations, he signed up for the “Acing It Like A Pro” webinar hosted by an HR consultant.
During this training, Kwame was taught all kinds of skills and etiquette. He was trained on how to open and shut doors properly, how to be polite to all staff he encounters, how to hold the gaze of the interviewer in a way that is not aggressive but assertive, he was taught how to exude confidence while giving a handshake.
Kwame was also told questions to anticipate, one of which is the infamous, “Tell us about yourself” question.
God once had an opening for which he interviewed prospects/candidates.
The then holder of the position was quite a looker; he was heads and shoulders above everybody, literally. He had started well, self-effacing, unassuming, humble, and courageous. But then, once he got the job, his head got bigger, his ego bloated, and he became too big for his shoes. Now God was on a lookout again, and he put the vacancy out.
What He did was he contracted his prophet to carry out the recruitment exercise and…Oh Boy! Did he almost miss it! You see when the interview was on, Samuel was so impressed with the CV of Eliab, that he muttered under his breath, “This must be him”, he felt he had found a worthy replacement for Saul, one with an imposing physique too, that way the royal clothes will require little or no adjustment at all. But he was called to order, because, when God puts a vacancy out, he’s not going to be impressed with the arrangement of your CV, when He asks, “Tell me about yourself”, He doesn’t expect a long-winded effort at blowing your own trumpet; He just listens to hear your heart say, “I’m available Lord, I’m at your service”
Like Jesus: “Then I said, ‘Look, I have come to do your will, O God—” (Hebrews 10:7a NLT). He looks for one of whom He can say “‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart [conforming to My will and purposes], who will do all My will” (Acts 13:22 AMP)
Do you want to serve Him? Go into today preoccupied with doing His will and carrying out His programs…His and not yours.
