     | 8,437 views

    Saul is chosen to be King but noone knows. God works in secret and he works through the indwelling of his Holy Spirit to change Saul so he can be King.

Samuel certainly did! Or he might have given them someone they’d regret having as king just to teach them a lesson. ...read more
