Define Your Destiny (5)

 Acts 13:22-23

22  And when he had removed him (Saul), he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will. 
23  Of this man's seed hat God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Savior, Jesus.

David discover his identity through
