Saul had just been anointed by Samuel, and given specific instructions of what would happen next. Just consider this; The donkeys of Saul’s father were missing, and God took care of that. He was given specific details of who would say what, when and where. He then was directed to another place, to look for three specific men, carrying young goats, and another three men carrying bread that he would to receive. Then he should go to a hill and meet a group of prophets with musical instruments that will at that time be prophesying. At that specific moment the Spirit of the Lord will overtake him and he also would prophesy. And then he would become another man.
You see, Saul went looking for his father’s donkeys, but God came to anoint him as king of Israel. He was to be the first king of Israel, so Samuel gave him these instructions that were truly extraordinary signs. In order to faithfully follow all of these instructions, Saul definitely needed another heart, and God knew that.
It is so wonderful how our lives are changed when we hear His voice, when we listen to his instruction through His word. If we listen carefully He will be showing us extraordinary signs every day, and instructing us the what, the where and the when. Do you need another heart? Take time to seek and to follow His instructions and inquire in God’s word. He may show you extraordinary signs. But if you listen carefully to his word, you will see that the most extraordinary sign of all is that he will give you another heart.
So I tell him, “Lord, give me today another heart”.
