today's reading.
1 Samuel 16:1-13   The Lord said to Samuel, "How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go. I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have provided for myself a king among his sons"...

the blog.
The account of David being anointed as the next king is one of my favorites because it shows us an incredibly faithful Samuel. What a great model Samuel provides for us when it comes to listening to God and trusting Him. Here's what I noticed. Samuel's trust in God wasn't moved or shaken by grief and disappointment (vs. 1 "How long will you grieve over Saul. . .?"), by fear (vs. 2 "If Saul hears of it, he will kill me.") or by uncertainty (vs. 6-13, God choosing David from Jesse's sons). I am thankful for this look into Samuel's life and for his example in a difficult situation. 

So what did you see about trusting God from 1 Samuel 16:1-13? Was there something Samuel did or said that you found helpful? Tami
