Take a risk and help


1 Samuel 29:1”Then they told David, saying, "Behold, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and are plundering the threshing floors."


It is imperative that I give the background of the above verse and this chapter very crisply before I delve into the subject which would be pure missionary call, if you are looking for ‘bless me’ message then skip this.  People of Keilah were in dire need for help to save them from the hands of the Philistines who were plundering them, therefore they seek the help of David.  Why David? Because he was the anointed one of God!  David was like a ‘Savior’ in this chapter. He did not emotionally take decisions, he enquired the Lord if he should go, the Lord said, ‘go’.  However, the David’s men were apprehensive about this and they said, ‘why take risk?’ (verse 3 - I have simplified it)David again checked with God and God gave the green signal.  David wins but something else happens, the people of Keilah were ready to surrender David to Saul because Saul threatened to attack them again.


So, what is the lesson we learn here: we need to take risks and help people, true leaders do not stay in safe zones but would not hesitate to face dangers to help others, even though people may not be grateful for the help received; yet, we need to have the heart of Jesus and help people anyway, never expecting anything in return. This message comes to people who are serving the Lord in some capacity: Youth leader, church leader, women’s group leader…whatever, when people come to you for help, it is because you are God’s chosen one and you are called for such a season as this.  Arise leader!


During this COVID 19 period, anointed children of God are to be a light in the darkness, you were not redeemed, cleansed and baptized to hide inside a bushel.  Despite running from pillar to post with the devil chasing him ceaselessly; yet, David had the true spirit of a leader and he stands brave to help people in need.  We are running free school for the poor, with schools closed for very long period, my heart was broken and we were looking for ways to help the children who do not have the facilities to attend zoom classes.  Besides giving the students groceries, we wanted to help them in their studies, parents were pleading me to help them, so we took a step forward to help them.(with lot of risks involved)  Are you being of some help for God or are you having fun during this lockdown?
