One day, long ago, a man named Saul was out cashing after donkeys that went missing from his father’s herd. During the hunt, Saul came across the prophet Samuel and Samuel gave him a message that would change his life forever. Saul was to be the first king of Israel!
Understandably, Saul was hesitant to fully accept the job. He was from the smallest, weakest tribe of Israel. How could he be king? Yet God made an amazing promise to Saul; God told him that anything he did as king would be successful. God was fully behind Saul and wanted Saul to stay fully behind him.
Yet, Saul didn’t fully believe that God was with him. Instead of moving forward in humble confidence he retreated in doubtful fear.
As a Christian, God has set you apart as a “chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession” (1 Peter 2:9). Do you act like that? Are you more comfortable doing what you used to do before becoming a friend of Jesus?
Listen as Casey encourages that you can trust God when he calls you to join him in life’s journey.
