The Lord is with him

I'm going through the book of 1 Samuel recently and below are some of the power verses ( got the phrase from Nahing's blog :)) that I found:

"If you do not obey the LORD, and if you rebel against his commands, his hand will be against you, as it was against your fathers.... But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. " 1 Samuel 12: 15, 24

"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD ? To obey is better than sacrifice." 1 Samuel 15: 22

"...The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7

I'm not done with the book yet but I want to share the verse that I read last week:
One of the servants answered, "I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him." 1 Samuel 16:18

I found it interesting that Saul's servant noticed: the Lord was with David, which make me wonder: do people around us know the Lord is with us?
