.....DO AS OCCASION SERVE THEE...
1 Sam 10:1, 6, 7 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the Lord hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?
And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as occasion serve thee; for God is with thee.
Insight and Highlight.
When God is with you, you can do as occasion demands.
It is power to do as occasion serves you.
After Samuel anointed Saul, Saul was given immunity, impunity and an unrestricted access to do whatever occasion expects or demand of him.
In other words, Saul could do whatever his hand finds to do.
There were two conditions that were attached to this.
These conditions found their foundation on the anointing that Saul received.
The first condition is that Saul will wait for the coming on the Spirit upon him.
Saul passed the test, he waited, the Spirit came on him, he became a changed man and he prophesied as Samuel said, 1 Sam 10:10.
Second condition was that, Samuel's word to Saul that Saul could do whatever his hands found to do was an open door to Saul that God was with him.
A man of God is privileged and often does something that though may not look right to others but are acceptable to God.
When the disciples received a new life by Jesus' breath on them, Jesus told them in John 20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
Here, Christ was saying that a chosen of God could impute sin on a person and may ask God to refuse someone's prayer. He may possibly tell God to retain or use a person's sin against him/her.
In other words, a man known of God, whose ways please God can send you to hell or heaven.
This was the power in Moses when he told God concerning Korah Dathan and Abiram and their conspirators, .....Respect not thou their offering:...
Moses called for God's judgment.
He said, If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the Lord hath not sent me.
By Moses' request, God answered him and he sent them all to hell! (Numb 16:1-34.
It further tells us that the man of God could not do anything if God is not with him
It is a question of though he claims to be on God's side, but is God on his side?
Saul's misfortune began on his first assignment. Samuel told him when he was anointed to meet him at Gilgal. Saul was impatient, 1 Sam 10:8, 13:8, 15.
His failed God, and He regretted he made him king, and this led to his final dethronement.
God was willing to be on his side, but he was not willing to be on God's side.
When we are not on God's side, He can not be on our side.
If you want to do as occasion serves you, be on God's side.
Call to Word action.
The man of God can do as occasion demands of him and occasion can work as he demands.
1 Sam 12:17 You know that it does not rain at this time of the year during the wheat harvest. I will ask the LORD to send thunder and rain today. Then you will realize how wicked you have been in asking the LORD for a king!”
The Christian clarion duty.
Whichever way, danger or honor, crooked or straight, high or low, the one chosen by God is guaranteed God's backing.
Lord, grant me Kingdom privilege to do as occasion demands of me and let occasions work as l demand of them, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
