From Shepherd to King
1 Chronicles 17:16-27
God establishes a people after His own heart by speaking His will into their hearts.
But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."
-1 Samuel 16:7
