I pray that you all are standing strong in your walk. When we are building our foundation on faith things come our way, stay strong in the Lord. What comes are way only last for that moment. It’s our faith that tells us God is going to make a way. We need to be ready to believe God for all the things that he has said he will do, and all the things that he has said you will be.

I Samuel Chapter 31
Saul takes his life
The word says; the Philistines fought against Israel and the Israelites ran from them, many Israelites were killed in Mount Gilboa. In this fight Saul’s three sons were killed Jonathan, Abindab, and Malki-Shua and when the archers saw Saul they wounded him. Saul didn’t want to die in the hands of his enemy, he told his armor bearer to drive the sword in him. The armor bear was afraid and didn’t want to do it, so Saul took his own life by falling on his sword. When they armor bearer saw that Saul was dead he did the same to himself. When the Israelites that were on the Jordan river saw that the Israel army had fled and Saul and his sons were dead the left their towns and ran.
The next day the Philistines found the bodies of Saul and his sons and they cut off Saul’s head and sent a message to the Philistines. The Philistines took the body and armor of Saul to the temple of the Ashtoreth and fastened his body on the wall of Beth Shan.
The word says when the people of Jabesh Gilead heard what happen they went and retrieved the body of Saul and his sons and buried them at a tree in Jabesh.
When Saul took matters in to his own hand it didn’t work out for him. Saul only wanted the Lords opinion when necessary. Saul didn’t walk a righteous life, he used the Lords like an ATM. We must be careful with this action we must be able to place the Lord in every aspect of our lives, we cannot pick and choose what the Lord can be sovereign over and what he can’t
