It is encouraging to see how wonderfully God used David and yet realize that David wasn't God's first choice. In this teaching, Andrew proves that Saul was not a "fill-in" until David grew up ? he was God's original and first choice to rule. In 1 Samuel 13:13, the Lord said if Saul would have obeyed Him, his kingdom would have been established over Israel forever. We never would have heard of David if Saul hadn't blown it. So if you don't feel like the most qualified person, take heart; God is not looking for your ability but your availability. You don't have to be a silver vessel, just a surrendered one.
