Nothing But 100% by Pastor Melissa Scott

There is nothing wrong with riches; it is whether or not you look at those as your possession or whether or not you are the Lord’s completely and wholly, and alert to that which God would give as an opportunity to share in His Kingdom. Nabal missed it.

Let me tell you, God is going to do something with this church. Some of you are aware of the great things God has done and without that foundation and platform we could not go from here, but God has only just started. I want you to know that. And the true King gives the same opportunities today.

In 1 Samuel 23 there is another personality. He is nothing like Nabal; rather, he has come to symbolize friendship. His name is Jonathan. Remember, God is communicating the eternal with the drama of these lives. Jonathan didn’t doubt David’s kingship. Jonathan was the son of Saul, so in the natural he was the true inheritor to the kingdom. He had to take quite a step within himself not to resent David, but he didn’t resent David: he loved David.

Pastor Melissa Scott continues, he recognized that David was the true king. He wanted David to be the king. He even expected to be in the kingdom when it came. When David needed help, Jonathan was always running there to help him.

As a good man he was hard to beat. He himself abdicated in spirit what he had in the natural a right to claim. He went to David one time when David was in trouble and said, “You are the true king. You are going to be king. The Lord is going to make you king and I will be next unto you.” That was not pushing himself up but putting himself down under the true king that God had anointed.
