No Such Thing As Random
I Samuel 9
There is no such thing as random.
1. Mindless Donkeys on an unknown mission
2. Children of God on a mission from God
As a child of God, nothing about your life is random.
5 truths to encourage you in the seeming randomness of life:

1. God knows you better than you can imagine.
Matthew 10:29-31
Psalm 139:1-4

2. God is taking care of you in ways you can't see.
Matthew 6:25-30

3. God loves you more than any of us deserve.
Romans 5:6-8

4. God chose you to be His before humanity even existed.
Ephesians 1:4-5

5. God has a detailed plan for your life that is good and fits into a much bigger plan.
Psalm 139:16
Ephesians 2:10
What will believing these 5 truths do for me?

1. It brings me back to a GOD-ORIENTED PERSPECTIVE.
2. It eliminates my reasons to WORRY.
3. It fills me with HOPE.
4. It gives me ENDURANCE.
How can God be "grieved" in choosing Saul?

It doesn't mean God is SURPRISED in how things turned out; it is simply means He is SAD about it.
Next Steps:

- Choose one of the five truths that is hardest for me to really believe and memorize a Bible verse that speaks to that truth.

- Look for the potential in the seemingly random things that come up this week.

- Identify a specific worry of mine and process it through the five truths.
