1 Samuel 16: God’s ways are not our ways


  • Samuel’s mourning
  • David’s anointing
  • Saul’s demon


The overarching truth that we can write over this next chapter is, ‘God’s ways are not our ways.’ At several points we find ourselves confronted with a God who does things very differently to us. We come to the chapter of David’s anointing. We have been drawing out the end of Saul’s reign and finally come to the one God promised to choose. We will look at the three main characters and how God works in their lives, at Samuel’s mourning; David’s anointing and Saul’s demon.
