David through the Scriptures shows that everyone who God calls to be His children have to follow the journey of the chosen. All who God calls to labour in His work must undergo a series of episodes, without which there can be no hope of service in the work of the Kingdom. Through the life of four men – Joseph, Moses, David and Paul – David shows that all were mightily used of God because all went through God’s pattern! They were called, had a preview of ministry, were then demoted, and went through a wilderness before then being promoted. This message is a great encouragement for all who perhaps felt that they were once called, but have not seen the full fruit of that calling.
