Why do people like kings? Why was that true of God’s people who knew the King of kings?
Scripture tells us it isn’t wrong to want an earthly king—if that leader will submit his authority to the power of God. Listening for God’s direction and trusting his will were essential to being a leader to God’s people.
Do you know how to discern the voice of God so that you can choose his path for your life? When does God speak? What is his message? How do you obey? Biblical history teaches that none of Israel’s kings or servants lived in perfect obedience, yet God’s sovereign plan will always be accomplished.
Who do we turn to, and how can we become a godly influence to others? This study will show us how God used David and Solomon to influence and lead the people of Israel to a closer relationship with God as their King. Their stories will encourage us to make God our King as well and allow his influence in our lives to influence the lives of those around us.
