1 Samuel 11:1-11

I see a little big of myself in Saul every time I read over his reign.  In this chapter Saul is rescuing his countrymen.  He’s absolutely convinced he’s doing whats right and as a result leads decisively and powerfully.  This is when Saul was still humble before God; more sensitive to His leading.  I have moments like this in my life.  Ones of absolute clarity about what God desires.  Then you read about the rest of Saul’s life; the part where He wasn’t within a mile of God or God’s plan.  What’s extraordinary about both situations is that they’re choices.  God doesn’t walk away from us… His Spirit doesn’t leave us.  God’s the constant and when we walk humbly with our God, we get to act as one confident of what God would have.
