Now to him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 CSB
1 Samuel 21-22
Ever feel like this? 15 Do I have such a shortage of crazy people that you brought this one to act crazy around me? Is this one going to come into my house?” LOL J!
How would you like to be the leader of these people?
2 In addition, every man who was desperate, in debt, or discontented rallied around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him.
I have to say that there are great spiritual lessons in these passages yet I am just rather amused today!
Well, not anymore amusement because of the killing of the priests, women, children and animals! Saul was the one out of his mind! This was such an evil act carried out by Doeg and very honorable of the servants who refused to kill any of the priests! Many of us have had the experience of working for bosses that were not effective and wanted things done for their own glory and not for the good of the workplace. It is no fun! Several experiences I had definitely worked towards changing my work direction!
My God is the God of Truth. There is so much to look forward to with the new Heaven and Earth!
The devil can twist things to completely not mean what their purposeful intent was to begin with. God always has a plan and there are always those who come out knowing the Lord. Nothing is new under the sun and these same delusions are all around us, thus the importance of a meditative Word life that settles deep within us! It is knowing the Truth whose Name is Jesus that keeps and sets us free! The Bereans had the sense to daily search the scriptures to see if Paul was preaching truth. When they saw that he was, they received the Lord. There will always be those, led by the enemy to stir things up against anything God. No worries, the Lord always opens other opportunities. Human intellectualism faces its death in the Light of Yeshua Messiah and His Word!
Meditate & Apply: God is Truth. No matter who I have to deal with, God is for me so truly no one can really be against me. Keep daily meditating the wonderful Word.
