-Saul, David, Us

Picture Frame Saul, David, Us


Saul’s is a story of squandered opportunity. While he had position, power, wealth and God all working for him, his pride and self-centeredness ultimately frustrated God’s will for his life and sabotaged his own ambitions. Such is the price for a life lived outside of God’s covenant. David was no less sinful than Saul, but his heart was right with God. He pursued God’s will, gave God all glory, praise and honor, and when he was disobedient, he confessed his sinfulness and his repentant heart allowed God to change him to become a more Godly man. While the consequences of his sins would frustrate him for the rest of his life, he was a forgiven man, his relationship with God was restored and nothing else mattered more. God was able to use him mightily in spite of himself.

Let’s pray continually that we will in no way squander our lives as Saul did, but rather pattern them after David as we seek to do God’s will and maintain a right relationship with Him.

Let’s not limit our usefulness to God through selfishness or idolatry of any sort. Let’s ask Him for a penitent heart and a zeal for righteousness in our lives.

Let’s pray for the courage to respond to His will so that we may be mighty warriors for His cause in the circumstances of our lives.
