Enduring God's Time

Topic: Enduring God's Time

Scripture Reading: 1Samuel 13:1-15

Main Text 
1Samuel 13:8-10

'Then he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him. So Saul said, “Bring a burnt offering and peace offerings here to me.” And he offered the burnt offering. Now it happened, as soon as he had finished presenting the burnt offering, that Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might greet him.'

According to the time set by Samuel: Samuel told Saul to wait for him at Gilgal. Then Samuel would preside over sacrifices and Israel would be spiritually ready for battle.

Saul had to do something to impress the people and gain back their support. He invaded the priestly office and offered sacrifices he wasn't permitted to perform just to save the situation.

Saul decided to perform the sacrifice not more than an hour before Samuel arrived. If he trusted God and waited one more hour, how different things could have been! The last moments of waiting are usually the most difficult and they powerfully tempt us to take matters into our own hands.

Saul's impatience had to cost him his kingdom. Hold on and keep trusting in God's promise despite the prevailing circumstances for change is coming!

Prayer:
Eternal Father, I receive grace today to endure Your appointed time for my life in Jesus' name. Amen

The Lord be gracious unto you!
Shalom
