Notes & Transcripts


  • God instructed Samuel to pay a visit to Jesse
  • To announce one of his sons Israel’s next king.
  • God rejected the most likely choice
  • God was more interested in the new king’s heart than in his outward appearance (16:7)
  • If God called you into his service would your heart be ready?
  • God did not want another Saul (9:2)

A. See what God Sees

  • Samuel did not learn this lesson.
  • God passed by seven of Jesse’s sons
  • God choose David, the youngest, to be his king
  • Another example of the older serving the younger (Gen. 25:19–26).
  • David would have been about 17 at the time.
  • Sometimes we try to run ahead of God.
  • The heart determines the Life. (Proverbs 4:23)
  • Only God can see the heart.

B.   Let God do the Rest

  • Samuel anointed David with oil to be King (16:13).
  • Messiah, the Hebrew name for Christ means “anointed one.”
  • Here we have a shepherd boy anointed
  • From working in fields to the throne.
  • God took care of David; and will take care of you.
  • God used David’s musical skill.
  • Right music prepares the heart.
  • Good music is empowered by the Sprit.
  • David had nothing to fear.

C. God sees the heart

  • God sees our hearts.
  • God searches the heart as well – 1 Chr 28:9
  • God knows our thoughts and motives – Heb 4:12-13
  • We think we know our own hearts but we do not
  • Consider Jeremiah’s words in Jer 17:9
  • We need to accept what God says about our hearts.
  • Christian is your heart clean before God?
  • Do you need to confess some hidden sin to God?

How does this apply to this church? I believe in Two Ways . . .

1. Christians should be careful not to judge others since we cannot know their hearts.

2. Sometimes things may not look right but we do not understand the circumstances.

Closing Prayer:

神よ。私を探(さぐ)り、私の心を知(し)ってください。私を調(しら)べ、私の思(おも)い煩(わずら)いを知(し)ってください。 私(わたし)のうちに傷(きず)のついた道(みち)があるか、ないかを見(み)て、私(わたし)をとこしえの道(みち)に導(みちび)いてください。神様、私たちの れいてきせいちょうの さまたげになるものがあるなら それを とりさる ことができるように たすけてください。私たちの めを いつも あなたから はなすことが ないようにしてください。あなたの みての なかで やすむ ことが できますように。けさ、 つみを しめされたなら それを あなたに 

こくはくし あたなたとの まじわりを もつことができるようにしてください。

主イエスのみなにより おいのりいたします。アーメン
