  2. 2. Christmas program December 18 2
  3. 3. Saul was seeking his daddys donkeys, but found a kingdom. 3
  4. 4. 1 Sam 9:18 ThenSaul drew near to Samuel in the gate,and said, Tell me, I pray thee, where the seershouse is. And Samuel answered Saul, and said, I amthe seer: go up before me unto the high place; forye shall eat with me today, and tomorrow I will letthee go, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart. Eat with me today, and I will answer all your questions tomorrow. 4
  5. 5. We have to be willing to wait on Gods answer to our questions, our needs, or for understanding. God always has the answers that we need, And He has the right person to help us. What God says do. 5
  6. 6. 20 And as for thine asses thatwere lost three days ago, set notthy mind on them; for they arefound. And on whom is all thedesire of Israel? Is it not on thee,and on all thy fathers house?Saul set out to find his daddys donkeys, and the man of God said, "They are found." But he found much more: He found a kingdom. 6
  7. 7. We never know what God may bring our way,when we are faithfully doing the day to day things that are our lot in life. 1 Be where you are supposed to be, Doing what you are supposed to do. 7
  8. 8. Secondly -- guard your mindset and attitude.Be always ready to respond to God-given opportunities. 8
  9. 9. 21 And Saul answered and said, Am not I aBenjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel?and my family the least of all the families of thetribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou soto me?We dont know, but it may have been. We know his daddy was rich and influential, but that doesnt mean Saul was arrogant. 9
  10. 10. 22 And Samuel took Saul and his servant, andbrought them into the parlor, and made them sit inthe chiefest place among them that were bidden,which were about thirty persons. 23 And Samuelsaid unto the cook, Bring the portion which I gavethee, of which I said unto thee, Set it by thee. God had told Samuel that Saul was coming. He made preparations. 10
  11. 11. 24 And the cook took up the shoulder, and thatwhich was upon it, and set it before Saul. AndSamuel said, Behold that which is left! set it beforethee, and eat: for unto this time hath it been keptfor thee since I said, I have invited the people. SoSaul did eat with Samuel that day. "Behold that which is left" "This is what I have set aside for you, since I invited the people." 11
  12. 12. This was not a feast that Saul happened to come to.Samuel had planned this feast especially for Saul.O how we need to learn to know and trust the Voice of our Lord. God spoke in Samuels ear and told him that the king the people wanted was coming. Samuel immediately prepared for him. 12
  13. 13. 25 And when they were come down from the highplace into the city, Samuel communed with Saulupon the top of the house. Samuel had already told Saul that he was chosen to be the first king of Israel.I have no doubt that Saul had many questions. 13
  14. 14. 26 And they arose early: and it came to pass aboutthe spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul to thetop of the house, saying, Up, that I may send theeaway. And Saul arose, and they went out both ofthem, he and Samuel, abroad.Even though they had no doubt talked late into the night up on the roof, They woke up early, and went outside just at daybreak. 14
  15. 15. 27 And as they were going down to the end of thecity, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass onbefore us, (and he passed on,) but stand thou still awhile, that I may shew thee the Word of God. Now the details of Gods Plan to make Saul king. "But stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the Word of God." 15
  16. 16. If we are going to hear Gods Voice and receive His instruction, we must sometimes get still. "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10 In this busy world, it is often hard to make time to get still before God and listen to Him. 16
  17. 17. Maybe find a quiet place in nature to sit before God.Singing in joy to the Lord. 17
  18. 18. Samuel was the final judge of Israel, and indemanding a king the people were rejecting God, But also rejecting Gods man -- Samuel.Samuel would no longer be the leader of the nation.Yet we see no evidence of envy or jealousy. 18
  19. 19. Are you willing to step back or step down and help someone else do the Will of God? To help is one of the gifts of the Holy Ghost.To get the job done, we must all help one another. 19
