How can it be possible that a bloke looking for some lost donkeys ends up being anointed as the ruler of Israel? How did it happen that Samuel – the prophet and leader of the people at this time – was able to meet with Saul who would become the leader of the people? It becomes easier to understand when we see that God is working behind the scenes to make it happen. And if he did this for Saul and Samuel, we can find hope and assurance he is still doing this in our time. God is sending someone to save his people.
