THE EFFICACY OF RECOMMENDATION

READ: 1 Samuel 16:15-19

MEMORISE: Then one of the servants answered and said, “Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valour, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the Lord is with him” (I Samuel 16:18).


EXPOSITION:
Recommendation is to approve of a person’s ability and capacity for a particular task. One can be very good at what he/she does but most times, such a person needs the recommendation of some people whose shoulders he/she must stand upon to deliver. Without the needed recommendations, one’s skills and capability can remain untapped, redundant and unutilized.

A meeting was held in King Saul’s palace, concerning the evil spirit that troubled him at various intervals, it was then ascertained that the only solution to his predicament was to get a skilful player of the harp (I Sam. 16:16). Right there in the meeting, someone recommended David immediately for the job, and there was no going back or opposition to it. A man’s recommendation quickly became the palace’s decision, and that led to David’s first official visit to the palace to showcase and manifest God’s grace upon him. It might not have been possible without that singular act of recommendation.

Also in Genesis 41:9-41; an ex-convict (the butler) was the one who recommended Joseph to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams that no one else in the kingdom could do. He further convinced Pharaoh of Joseph’s capability, by narrating his own personal experience to him. This also led to Joseph’s freedom and ultimately to the fulfillment of his dreams and God’s glory from his life. Do not forget to excel in your God-given duty, and wherever you are placed, always do your best with humility and passion; someone who would recommend you later without consulting you is watching.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, raise men and women of substance and integrity that will recommend me for the fulfillment of Your presence for my life.

2. I shall not leave this earth without fulfilling my destiny and purpose in the name of Jesus
.
3. Lord, take away from me everything that disqualifies me from glorious recommendations.
