chronological day 100 :)

Please read 1 Samuel 4:12-22, 1 Samuel chapters 5,6,7 and 8.  Can you believe we’ve made it to 100 days?  We’re way past mere habit now – and we won’t be stopped!  100 days is a milestone – way to go, friend!

When Israel rejected God as king, Samuel tried to warn them, but they wouldn’t have it.  

“all the elders of Israel got together and confronted Samuel at Ramah. They presented their case: “Look, you’re an old man, and your sons aren’t following in your footsteps. Here’s what we want you to do: Appoint a king to rule us, just like everybody else.”

When Samuel heard their demand—’Give us a king to rule us!’—he was crushed. How awful! Samuel prayed to God.

God answered Samuel, ‘Go ahead and do what they’re asking. They are not rejecting you. They’ve rejected me as their King’ ” (1 Samuel 8:4-8 MSG)

Even though it wasn’t the right thing, God did give them what they wanted – He will not work against our free will. It’s so important to stay close to the Lord and lean in to the Holy Spirit, so we learn to want what God wants for us.

One thought on “chronological day 100 :)

  1. Ralph Madrigal says:

    Chapter 8 called out to me today, how can a nation protected by GOD ask for a different ruler. (5 “Look,” they told him, “you are now old, and your sons are not like you. Give us a king to judge us like all the other nations have”).

    By this point the people were getting further away from GOD which made him angry. Why do we turn away from our protectors? When our parents look to correct us we in turn get angry but we run to them as children even when we are older because they will always be our parents. When we have conflict in life we tend to doubt GOD’s goodness and run to something with a simple fix.
    Today’s takeaway: hold steady and listen to GOD. His love is forever!
