The Sovereign’s Spirit

If we’re honest, we’ll admit that we usually choose second best. That’s what is happening here. GOD Himself led the Israelites from the time He chose Abraham all the way through as they became millions in Egypt in slavery and as He freed them and led them out under Moses to have their own land, promised to them by the LORD. He led them as they battled those who opposed Him and them. But instead of realizing they had the best possible leadership, they wanted what all the other countries had. It was the ancient version of “keeping up with the Jones’s” and “the grass being greener” on the other side of the fence even in a desert with no fences.

So they chose the tallest, most kingly looking guy they had. And as GOD and Samuel whom GOD used to speak to them warned, he failed them.

We do the same thing today, putting our trust in politics or ideologies that we think can “save” us from our circumstances. But only GOD can save us, through a personal relationship. Only He can bring us where we need to be, by His Spirit steering us in new hearts given us by Him through King JESUS on the throne of the new heart He provides. If we are truly His, we must follow Him and show He is our king by our obedient action.

The LORD leads by His Spirit, Scripture and circumstances. We serve Him as our Sovereign by our steps. 1 Samuel, Chapters 11-15
