King Saul had failed to acknowledge he ruled under the authority of God. He would not submit to God or do what God asked him to do. The result was that God rejected him as king, and both he and three of his sons died in battle on Mt. Gilboa. David on the other hand, submitted to God and sought to please Him. He recognized that God was the true King of Israel, and he would be God’s viceroy. David had been anointed the future king of Israel by the prophet Samuel. Now it was time for David to become king. We will learn David’s key to success as king. Taught by Pastor Rick Moe.
