1 Samuel 10

January 22, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Later Samuel called all the people of Israel to meet before the LORD at Mizpah. And he said, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, has declared: I brought you from Egypt and rescued you from the Egyptians and from all of the nations that were oppressing you. But though I have rescued you from your misery and distress, you have rejected your God today and have said, ‘No, we want a king instead!’ Now, therefore, present yourselves before the LORD by tribes and clans.’” v.17-19
Israel’s true king was God, but the nation demanded another. Imagine wanting a human being instead of God as a guide and leader! Throughout history, men and women have rejected God, and they continue to do it today. Are you rejecting God by pushing him aside and acknowledging someone or something as your “king” or top priority? Learn from these stories of Israel’s kings, and don’t push God aside.
