1 Samuel 9 | Quiet Providence

Mark Smith

Speaker: Mark Smith

Sermon Synopsis

Life is filled with ordinary moments of mundane movements. The Christian life is not excused from the everyday mundane. Thankfully, glimpses into the deeper work of Jesus can be found throughout our days upon closer inspection. Join Pastor Mark in today’s study of 1 Samuel 9, and as we do, may you be amazed by the intricately woven chain of events displayed in the ordinary moments of this passage. Learn to identify the moment in which God’s mercy is given to a distressed people through quiet providence. May your heart be encouraged, and you feel God’s love by the fact that God’s providence is at work at all times–even in the mundane moments that make up much of our everyday lives.
