Men are predictable, God is unpredictable

Human Beings tend to be predictable based on how they are viewed and knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses can also be areas humans use to predict humans. Sometimes, people might try to use the same formula on God and they realize that GOD IS UNPREDICTABLE.

I will be using one of the most popular prophets in the Bible as an example of someone who tried to predict how God moves and almost lost his life doing it.

Prophet Samuel was the prophet who anointed King Saul King of Israel in 1 Samuel 9:1-2 KJV, 1 Samuel 10:1 KJV. When you read the description of King Saul before he became king in 1 Samuel 9:1-2, you will think, or let us say assume that is how God will pick all his kings to lead Israel. When King Saul turned from God and God had to pick another King in 1 Samuel 15, the Prophet was told to go to the house of Jesse and anoint another king 1 Samuel 16:6 KJV, the prophet Samuel a prophet of God on seeing Eliab Jesse’s son assume that was the king God told him to go and anoint why because he had the same description of what King Saul had in 1 Samuel 9:1-2. God in 1 Samuel 16:8 said:

“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.”

Prophet Samuel saw Eliab as someone he could anoint as king, but God said NO.

Just because God moves in one way for a situation does not mean he would move the same way when the situation happens again. We have to understand that God is unpredictable, if you try to predict him based on his moves in your life or the happenings in your life, you will surely miss it. If a prophet who hears God consistently can almost miss God’s instruction, may God have mercy on us all.
