So today, the power invested in me by the Lord Christ Jesus, I am asking everyone to declare their destiny to God’s glory and power.

Samuel was a man chosen for God, from his miraculous birth until his death. He served in several important positions during his life, earning God’s favor because he knew how to obey. Samuel’s story began with a barren woman, Hannah, praying to God for a child. The Bible says “the Lord remembered her,” and she became pregnant. She named the baby Samuel, which means “the Lord hears.” When the boy was weaned, Hannah presented him to God at Shiloh, in the care of Eli the high priest. Samuel grew in wisdom and became a prophet. Following a great Philistine victory over the Israelites, Samuel became a judge and rallied the nation against the Philistines at Mizpah. He established his house at Ramah, riding a circuit to various cities where he settled the people’s disputes. Two of Samuel’s great administrations on behalf of God was in his appearance to Saul on a particular occasion when Saul disobeyed God in a battle with the Amalekites, sparing the enemy’s king and the best of their livestock, when Samuel had ordered Saul to destroy everything. God was so grieved that he rejected Saul and chose another king. Samuel went to Bethlehem and anointed the young shepherd David, son of Jesse. Thus began a years-long ordeal as the jealous Saul chased David through the hills, trying to kill him. In his farewell speech, the aged Samuel warned the people to give up idols and serve the true God. He told them if they and King Saul disobeyed, God would sweep them away. But Saul did disobey, offering a sacrifice himself instead of waiting for God’s priest CONCLUSION 1 Peter Chapter 1:2 – Who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through the sanctifying work of the Spirit for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood grace and peace be yours in abundance.
Destiny and purpose of God’s servants
To know one’s purpose is to know who they themselves are and what they are doing, they also have the determination to accomplish what it is that they are purposed to do. Do you know your purpose? Do you understand what purpose is? In this present age we live in a time when society is becoming more focused to the uniqueness of individuals .
Romans 8: 28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
