It's Day 52 and we're in 1 Samuel 15.
A little reminder from James 1:22 - "Do not merely listen to the Word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says!"
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verses 13-14 - Saul claims to have carried out God's command while the evidence that he didn't is making noise all around him. So often we have motives to give partial obedience and think it's good enough.
- Verse 3 - This is just a hard verse. Knowing that God commanded this destruction is hard to understand. Statements like in verse 33 of the evil that this nation had done help us to understand partially, but it's still a very harsh word and one that believers have struggled with down through the centuries.
- Verse 21 - They might have been sacrificing a little, but most was just taken as spoil.
- Verse 35 - It's not that God didn't know this would happen. It's just that, like a family tragedy you can see coming for years before, it's still heartbreaking to watch it actually unfold.
