Sermon Help Time

So, I'm thinking of a passage, but I can't remember it.  I'd like to use it as my text when I preach on Sunday, but to do that, I need to remember it.  So, engaging all of your brains in addition to mine, maybe we'll come up with it.
Once upon a time there was a king. I think he was one of the good kings, perhaps even before the divided kingdom.  Anyhow, a sacrifice needed to be made either before or after a battle and the king was supposed to wait for the prophet to come make the sacrifice.  He didn't. He made it himself.  Then the prophet showed up and was kind of ticked off.
That's what I remember.  Any idea on which king, which prophet, and/or which passage this is from?

it was Saul making a sacrifice before Samuel came I think it is 1 Sam. 14 or close to that. I don't have my bible in front of me.
