    In times past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led Israel out and in. Yahweh said to you, You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall be prince over Israel. So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before Yahwe...

    Yahweh's angel found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain on the way to Shur. He said, 'Hagar, Sarai's servant, where did you come from? Where are you going?' She said, 'I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.' Genesis 16:7 WEBHagar wandered alone in the desert. She...

  • Saul said to Samuel, 'I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of Yahweh, and your words, because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. 1 Samuel 15:24 WEB

    The Lord sent the king Saul on a quest but he failed because of his fear of man. The Lord told Saul through the prophet Samuel to completely wipe out the Amalekites, but for short-term gain, Saul conveniently 'overlooked' the command of the Lord and let his men keep the best cattle, the sheep, and the enemy king as plunder.

    The Lord wanted them all destroyed as they were probably demon-infested just like the swine became in Gerasenes (Mark 5:13). Saul wanted to please the people more than God, so he allowed them to keep the livestock as plunder, so they brought the demons home with them. When they killed the livestock and the demons lost their current house, they just wandered around until they could enter the people around them (Luke 11:24).

    Samuel told Saul 'Because you have rejected Yahweh's word, he has also rejected you from being king.' Then Saul pleaded with Samuel to stay so that he would not be embarrassed in front of the people. What the people would think was on the forefront of his mind, not that he had just lost the kingship. After this, God moved on and anointed David. Where Saul was fearful and failed, David had a strong faith in God and even faced Goliath as a youth, when neither Saul nor anyone in his army would.

    A mentor of mine worked at an electronics repair shop when he was a young man. One day his boss told him to be sure and replace a certain part on every radio that came through, whether it needed it or not, simply because the part was inexpensive and had a good markup. He silently ignored the request and after a couple of weeks, the boss came back and asked him why he was not doing what he had told him.

    My friend was married with young children, so he really needed the job, but he stood his ground and explained to the boss that he was a Christian and he could not do that. He told them that he would understand if they needed to let him go, but that he could not compromise on this because it was wrong, and it was against his faith. They became angry at first, and he thought that he was on his way out. Then instead of firing him, they promoted him and gave him a key to the shop because they knew that he could be trusted.

    If you are ever given a choice between obeying God or man, always choose God. It will work out for your good regardless of what may happen in the short term, for He has your back when you are obedient to His word. The fear of man may bring a short-term gain, but God's plan is for eternity.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please guide me today and help me make the right decisions. Let Your voice ring through in such a way that I cannot miss it, and give me the grace and wisdom to do what is right. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).

Amen! We need to always listen to the voice of the Lord, even if it is just a light whisper, because He knows all things, He knows what's best for us and He knows the outcome! Oh Lord God, dear Heavenly Father, please help me to always be sensitive to listen and hear your voice and obey by the power of Thy Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus I ask and pray, Amen!
