Yeah I Said it (10-29-11)

Lessons learned from 1 Samuel 

You don't have to always utter words to pray to God...He hears your heart (1 Sam 1:13).

God's timing is perfect...we just need to trust and have patience (1 Sam 1:20).

"The sons of Eli were worthless men. They did not know the Lord." (1 Sam 2:12) /// integrity matters.

Talking about something and doing something or completely different. (1 Sam 2:22-25).

"Samuel was ministering to the Lord." (1 Sam 3:1). /// This is where godly leadership begins.

Only God saves. No system or resource can save us. (1 Sam 4:3)

"Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground" (1 Sam 5:1-5). /// No idols can stand before or compare to Jesus.

"Samuel judged Israel all the days of His life." (1 Sam 7:15) /// faithfulness matters

"We also want to be like all nations" (1 Sam 8:20). /// being like everyone else isn't always the best thing to do.

"There is a man of God in this city" (1 Sam 9:6) /// People knew about Samuel's character and reputation. People are watching you.

"I have faithfully walked before you from my youth until this day." (1 Sam 12:2) /// Your testimony matters.

"Saul was still at Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling." (1 Sam 13:7) /// people will follow your lead

"The Lord has sought out a man after his own heart." (1 Sam 13:14) /// Your heart matters to God.

"It may be that the Lord will work for us." (1 Sam 14:6) /// Step out in faith and see how God will come through.

"Do all that is in your heart. Do as you wish." (1 Sam 14:7) /// when you are following Jesus you have freedom and grace.

"He has worked with God this day." (1 Sam 14:45) /// By faith we participate with God in what He is doing.
"For the Lord see not as man sees." (1 Sam 16:7) /// I need more Jesus vision.

Past experiences shaped David's current situation(1 Sam 17:36-37). May the situations you are going thru today build you faith for tomorrow.

David didn't wear Saul's armor (1 Sam 17:38-40). You got to be yourself.

"Jonathan loved him as his own soul." (1 Sam 18:1) /// Thanking God for my friends and praying for new ones.

"David had success in all his undertaking, for the Lord was with him." (1 Sam 18:14) /// Having God on your side matters.

"David weeping the most." (1 Sam 20:41) /// saying goodbyes are never fun.

"Jonathan told David" (1 Sam 19:1) /// Good friends warn you with the harsh truth.

"And about 400 men went up after David, while 200 remained with the baggage." (1 Sam 25:13) /// we all have a role to play
