1 Samuel 15 is our share for today. Unlike as we have done in the past, rather than quote it, this time, we will refer to it and learn. This is a time when God was in regret for appointing Saul king of Israel. He had received a message to destroy the Amalekites for their treatment of the nation of Israel when they left Egypt. Israel was to destroy all! People, cattle, all! Some of us might think this is simply “Do what The LORD says.” That Seems like the most reasonable answer. BUT, when the Israelites went, they decided to keep the best for themselves. TROUBLE!!! Disobedience to something that is so simply stated! Have we ever been given a directive and decided/made excuses decide not to do it?
What we ‘know’ to do in line with The Word of God, should not be passed. Rather, with confusion-PRAY! “LORD, is this what you will for me to do?” Pray and you WILL get an answer! In cases when the answer is unclear, ask for guidance. The Word has always existed among numbers, in our study it has said “Where 2 or 3 are gathered in My name, I am there in their midst.”, “Whatsoever 2 or 3 of you agree as touching any situation you have in The Will of God, shall be done.” We must remember that we serve a God that sees all and knows all.
God at this point communicated His regret for allowing Saul to rise on the throne. Mind you The Word is His-story, what has been done once, shall never be repeated, this is factual. Has there ever been a storm that wiped out most of life? It was done once and will never be done again. The LORD chose Saul and he stepped aside and there was much regret. Where do you stand? We have shared asking “Is God proud of you? Does He observe you with joy and satisfaction at creating you?”
We should be touched and focus on The Will of God.
LORD, I thank You for Your Will in my life. Father may my actions bring you joy in all my ways, LORD as I go out and come in, guide me, lead me, engulf me in the comfort and peace of Your presence. LORD, You are my ALL, I magnify You LORD on bended knee. Amen
