Following God

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 9:1-27

Today we get our first glimpse of Saul, a handsome and tall young man whom God is about to anoint as the first king of Israel. But what captured my attention in this chapter wasn't Saul--it was Samuel. I was struck by Samuel's relationship with God. Samuel is now an old man, and his walk with God is strong. He continues to seek God, listen intently to Him and then precisely follow every instruction he receives. What an inspiring example.

What does your relationship with God look like? Is it your daily practice to seek, listen to and follow God? How have you seen your relationship with God change and grow over time? Tami

Tami, I was drawn to Samuel's relationship with God is what I desire and my goal for the rest of my life.

This is what I want my relationship with God to be more like: like Samuel's:
6 "But he said to him, “Behold, there is a man of God in this city, and he is a man who is held in honor; all that he says comes true. So now let us go there. Perhaps he can tell us the way we should go."
vs. 27 ”that I may make known to you the word of God.”

and in I Sam. 8:10 "0 So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people."

More like Him and less of me.
