Read 1 Samuel 10
Samuel explained to Saul all that would happened. God gave Saul another heart. All the signs happened. Saul only shared part of the story with his uncle. Saul was hiding when it was time to be king.
Samuel prophesied what would happen to Saul. Everything he said happened. Three men going up to God, three goats, three loaves of bread, a skin of wine. They gave two loaves to Saul. He accepted. They meet a group of prophets. The Spirit of the Lord will come on Saul. Saul will prophesy with them. Saul will be turned into another man.
All who knew Saul formerly saw that he indeed prophesied among the prophets. His uncle asked what happened. Saul only told him half the story.
We can see from Saul’s example, we should avoid sharing only part of the truth. What good can come from a partial truth. The Devil often times tries to convince people with lies based on partial truth. We hear the piece of truth and are likely to believe the lie. God doesn’t work that way. He shares the entire truth, not just part of it. We need to share the entire story for it to be the truth.
Another thing we see from Saul, is how his hiding when its time to shine did not give not glory to God. When God calls, we need to step up to His calling. Let our light shine before men, so all can see it and come to know God as their Savior.
We learn God is faithful to equip those He calls. He doesn’t call us to do something and leave us to figure out how. He is a trustworthy God. He has a plan for us and part of the plan is to ensure we have everything we need to carry out the plan. From all that was said and all that transpired just as it was said, we again see God is a god of His word. What He says He does, without fail.
Here is a truth to consider: An encounter with God, changes us. God gives us a new heart, one that worships Him. This new heart will be evident to all who know you.
Lord, thank you for your faithfulness and trustworthiness. You are an honorable God. Everything you say happens. In you we trust. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
