1 Samuel: The Faithfulness of God

1 Samuel: The Faithfulness of God

“He will guard the feet of his faithful servants,
    but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness…

He will give strength to his king
    and exalt the horn of his anointed.”

1 Samuel 2:9, 10

As we come to the end of 1 Samuel, the words from the lips of Hannah are a fitting summary of this book. As we have followed the rise of David and fall of Saul, we can see God protecting His anointed against His enemies.

In the same way, Jesus was strengthened and protected by God so that He might reign as God’s anointed King.
