Welcome and thanks for reading.  Last week we read that there are a few times when God calls people to a
specific task or assignment.  These people are set apart as prophets and apostles.

Let’s review a scripture that Christians mistakenly use as proof that God has a specific task or assignment for all
people.

Psalms 32:8  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;  I will counsel and watch
over you.

After examining this scripture in its context, Psalms 32 is a dialogue between God and King David.  In
Psalms 32:7, David says “You are my hiding place, you will protect me from trouble and surround me
with songs of deliverance.  In Psalms 32:8, God responds to David “I will instruct you and teach you
in the way you should go;  I will counsel you and watch over you.”

Psalms 32:8 does NOT refer to all people.  This scripture is pointed at King David.  God choose David and
his dynasty to be his royal representatives.  He was the Lord’s servant.  God anointed David and
adopted him as his royal “son” to rule in his name.  Through him, God made his people “the Israelites”
secure in the promised land and subdued all the powers that threatened them.  David was a PROPHET.

As we mentioned above, only a few people have a specific task or assignment set out by God.  These
people are set apart as PROPHETS AND APOSTLES.

Next week, we will read another scripture that confuses Christians concerning God’s plan for all people.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
