The Lord provided Samuel as a ‘stabilizer’ in the chaotic period when the Israelites transitioned from a band of tribes to a monarchy. To introduce the notion of a stabilizer for the lesson, “Declaring the LORD’s Grace” consider using the illustration of an airplane's horizontal or vertical stabilizers.

This illustration has a lot of legs to it. For example, you can liken air turbalance acting on an airplane to issues that create instability in the lives of Christians. Stabilizers act on an airplane to keep it traveling in the right direction, and God acts on Christians faced with turbulances in their lives to keep them on the right path--one of maturing to become more like Christ Jesus.
