1 Samuel Chapter 11
Verse 1 – 18
Samuel says to the people of Israel, “I have heard you all, and I have given you your king”. Samuel tells the people that he is old and has served in his position since he was a young boy. Samuel asked the people of Israel “have I been unjust or stolen from anyone?” The people replied to him “no”. Samuel says then let God be the witness that I have not done anyone wrong.
Samuel begins to tell the people that he is now going to tell everyone all the things that the Lord has done for them and their fore fathers. Samuel says After Jacob went to Egypt they cried for the Lord’s help and he sent them Moses and Aaron who brought the people from Egypt. The people forgot God so He let them into the hands of Sisera and Philistine and the people cried out to the Lord and recognized their sin and Lord sent them Jerub-Baal, Barak, Jephthah and Samuel. He delivered you from the hands of your enemy on every side so that you could live securely.
Then you saw Nahash the king of the Ammonites moving in and you start crying for a king.even though the Lord God is your King.Now that you have your king if you and your king follow the commands that the Lord God gave you then you are good. But if you don’t follow the commands then He will be against you, as he did to your fathers. Samuel tells the people that he will ask the Lord for thunder and rain so that the people can see what evil they did when they asked the Lord for a king. That day Samuel called on the Lord for thunder and rain and there was thunder and rain. The people were in awe of God and Samuel.
These verses reminds me that when we are praying for God to work things out for us and then we try to go another route and start worrying about it ourselves it’s like doubting that God serves as king over us. We do it may times with out thinking. We pray to God for that finacial breakthrough and then we worry about the bills. If you prayed for the breakthrough then the faith should be there to know that he will move you exactly where you need to be.
Every time the Israelite’s faced a worry they turned their backs to what God had already done for them. At times all you need to say is Lord you know what we need, so I know that you will provide. The only thing that we should be focused on is our purposes and assignments which are the bottles of oil that are to be sold to gain income. II Kings 4:1-7
verse 19- 25
The people of Israel said to Samuel pray for us so that we will not die, we have added to our sins by asking for a king. Samuel tells the people do not worry you have sinned but serve the Lord now and don’t turn your back on him. stay away from the idols they will do you no good. The Lord will not reject his people because he is pleased to make you his own. Samuel tells the people I will do my part and pray for you and I will teach you to pray, but if you persist in doing evil you and your king will be swept away.
This chapter is clear as day. God forgives us over and over again as he did with the Israels but we need to walk in away that is pleasing to God. I will repeat this you will have to be in the word, have a prayer life, faith, and fellowship. It’s important to follow instruction the instruction that Samuel gave the people of Israel was you must not turn your back on God and the Lord will not reject you.
