From Shepherd to King

Watch the full teaching here

November 27, 2016 // While people look at the outside, God looks at the inside. The nation of Israel did not see David as a king like they saw Saul. However, Saul's heart was distorted, contrasted to the solid heart of David. Saul's son, Jonathan, could see the greatness of David, but Saul was constantly hostile towards David. Saul underestimated God's plan for David much like the world underestimated God's perfect plan for Jesus. Finally, after 14 years of training under Saul, David was ready to be the king. We all need someone in our lives who believes in us. Has God used a hostile person or situation in your life to mold and prepare you? 1 Samuel 16:10-13a; 14-15; 18:10-12
