Samuel Anoints David as King
Topic: UPCC Passage: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
Stop mourning and start moving (vs 1-5)
- Sometimes, we have to be shaken up by God
- Sometimes fear can prevent us from moving
Choosing with your eyes? (vs 6-7)
- Our eyes deceive us. Let’s not make decisions without consulting God’s will
- Also our past and our feelings deceive us
- We look at the eyes but God looks at the heart
Choosing a heart for God (vs 8-13)
- In our current culture we don’t know how to wait, so waiting on God is very difficult
- God will do his plan is his time
Let’s Live It
- Are you actively pursuing God’s calling?
- How do you judge/how do you make decisions? By what looks good or what God says is good?
- What are you doing to actively cultivate a heart for God?
