Scripture Nugget 4.4.2016

“Samuel said to Saul, ‘You have done foolishly; you have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which he commanded you. The LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever, but now your kingdom will not continue; the LORD has sought a man after his own heart; and the LORD has appointed him to be ruler over his people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you.’” 1 Samuel 13:13-14

Saul’s lack of patience and unwillingness to submit to authority are the issue here. By taking matters into his own hands, conducting the sacrifice without the priest, he overstepped his role as king. He did what he wanted, when he wanted to do it. He didn’t wait for God’s timing. That I would always remember to stay in my lane, do that which I’m called to do and leave tasks I’m not called to, to the ones that are. That I be patient and let things work out in God’s time.
