WEEK 3- September 25, 2022
Story of David: 1 Samuel 16:14-23
Kinder Box: “Y” Verse
Mystery Bag: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Read 1 Samuel 16:14-23. Last week we learned about how Samuel anointed David to be Israel’s next King. We learned that God’s Spirit was with David in a Powerful way. Even though David didn’t take over as King, this was the beginning of God doing an amazing work to making a Shepherd Boy into the King of Israel. In verse 14 we see that God doesn’t just give David His Spirit, but He takes it away from Saul. Instead of having the Spirit of God, a tormenting spirit came and filled Saul with depression and fear. This caused Saul to have a need, a need to have relief from this spirit. Saul’s servants saw this and came up with the idea that music would help him. And who did they find? None other than David! Let’s look at the description of David. He was a talented harp player, brave warrior, man of war, good judgment, and God was with him! God was in control of David’s life! He put things in David’s life to help him be the perfect choice to help Saul with this problem he was facing. And doing this, put David in the place God needed him to be so that one day he would be King of Israel.
This story shows us that we can trust God with our lives. We may want to complain about how many brothers and sisters we have or how many we don’t have, or what school we go to or don’t go to, the friends we have or don’t have, or many other things that we face. When we do this, we are saying that we don’t trust that God has a good plan for us. That God doesn’t see us and love us or hear our prayers. The Bible says God is a faithful God, that He does love us and care for us. The Bible shows us a God who has a plan for our lives, and He is in charge of all of what you like and don’t like about your life. If we truly trust God with our lives, we will choose to thank Him for all the details knowing that He has a reason and a plan. We can choose to believe that God is working out everything in our lives for the good!
