It does not matter ones experience, or which story demonstrates Gods goodness more, God has no favourites. Pa Hagin of blessed memory appeared to have been of that same opinion. Pa Hagin made the observation when explaining that some people do not think their faith will work. This is how he submits it, ” A Bible fact that gave me faith was this: God, my Heavenly Father, does not have any favorite children. He loves every one of us with the same love”. I want us to keep that in mind as we examine today’s passage. Now God told Samuel to go and anoint another King. One prayer I’ve prayed times without number is that God may keep me functional in my time. It can be a scary experience to be passed over by God. Saul was still King by name, but God was done with him. God needed another man. We can spend time trying to explain the pros and cons of Saul’s leadership, but God was done. James 2:11. Ines Franklin confesses by quoting Deut.10:17 to show Gods equitable love for all, ” I know for a fact that God does not show favoritism, because I do not deserve God’s favor at all. My story of brokenness, foolishness, and rebellion is proof”. You need to read his details. So God sent Samuel to pick another man. My prayer is that God will use you in your time.
And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Beth-lehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons. 1 Samuel 16:1 KJV
