But though I have rescued you from your misery and distress, you have rejected your God today and have said, ‘No, we want a king instead!
I Samuel 10:19 (NLT)
How much do we really rely on God? How much do we really commune with Him and depend on Him for wisdom and direction? Think about it. We have pastors, radio preachers, counselors, and bookstores full of books and magazines. That’s not counting conferences, colleges, Bible studies, or Sunday School classes. With all this help, with all this representation of God, why would we ever need God at all? The people of God wanted a King. They wanted a physical representation of God instead of God Himself. Now there is nothing wrong with having Pastors to teach and equip us. Participating in small groups or enjoying Bible Study is a needed thing. The point, however, is this. In all our searching, in all our seeking for answers, for all the comfort we are looking for, let us not forget to seek God Himself.
Father, I am so sorry for putting other things above You. You are all my heart needs. I come to You, my Lord and King, and ask that You guide and direct me throughout this day.
