    Finding God's Will

    When you make a decision, how do you know you are choosing to do the right thing? In this message, Dr. Stanley explains why we have trouble discerning God’s will and how sin affects our ability to walk in the path He has chosen for us. He also encourages us to discover the Lord’s will through reading the Word of God, praying faithfully, trusting our heavenly Father’s sovereignty over our circumstances, and listening to the wise counsel of others.

Facts Found in the Book of 1 Samuel

  1. Revolution brings great cultural change. First Samuel is a book full of revolution and change. Here is recorded the transition of leadership in Israel from the judges to the kings. Three men played prominently in this transition: Samuel, a prophet and the last judge; Saul, the first king; and David, the king-elect, anointed by God to succeed Saul.

    Tradition says that Samuel wrote both books, however his death is recorded in 1 Samuel 25:1, so others must have been part of the writing process. First Chronicles 29:29 refers to books by Samuel, Nathan, and Gad, so it is possible that all three men contributed to the books of 1 and 2 Samuel.

    The most obvious connection Jesus Christ has to the men of 1 Samuel is through King David. Christ's family descended from the line of David - Matthew 1:1. Romans 1:3 calls Jesus "the seed of David." The multitudes in Jerusalem recognized Him as the "Son of David" - Matthew 21:9. David, the lord of an earthly realm, was the forerunner of Jesus, the Messiah and Lord of people's hearts and souls.

    The only way human leaders can be sure of maintaining their own humility and the well-being of their people is by recognizing the lordshp, or leadership, of Christ in their own lives. Christ admonishes His disciples in John 15:5, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."

    Jesus--King, Leader, Son of Man, descendant of David, One who was truly after God's own heart. When He came, He brought a revolutionary way of living, for He brought us a way to walk with God.

    God Bless,

    Dan
