God's Prophet Samuel in the bible

      1 Samuel 15:22 " So Samuel said to king Saul : ...... Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, ..... " verse 23 said, " For rebellion is the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also rejected you from being king. "

         If you have recall reading the  1st book of  Samuel where the Lord is dealing severely with His anointed one and He strongly emphasized " Obedient is better than Sacrifice ". In certain nations like India, England, etc, people are paying very high respect and honor to their High Priest where Total obedient is required. King Saul acted smart before the Holy God, and remember this, YOU CAN HIDE NO Secrets FROM GOD, because HE is Omnipresent and Omniscient.

        1 Samuel 16:7 spoken about how God see things in different way from men : " .... the Lord said to Samuel, { DO NOT LOOK AT HIS appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. ( referring to king Saul ) } For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. "

         King David was later being called and selected by the LORD as the king after this event. The reason why David a Shepherd boy was being chosen to rule Israel mainly because of His heart of worship toward our Mighty God  ( 1 Samuel 16:16 ) and his great faith and trust on God is working on behalf of him no rely on his own strength and wisdom, read 1 Samuel 17:37 ,45.

May the Lord and Holy Spirit guide your reading of His words.

Blessed be the name of the LORD,

Prophetess Cassandra LAI
