1 Samuel 13. I just started reading in Samuel for my quiet time. Our teaching pastor Stan asked us to read in Samuel for the next few weeks. All day I have been thinking about Saul. He didn't obey God. He got anxious waiting for Samuel to come and offer sacrifices, so he took matters into his own hands and did it himself. His pride took over. This angered God and ruined Saul's life.
I have been thinking alot about how I often take things into my own hands instead of waiting for God. I wonder what I have missed by proudly going ahead on my own.
Doing what God says is more important than the battle itself. Saul was so concerned about the battle and his soldiers, that he forgot who he was fighting for.
