Daily D – 1 Samuel 15:12
1 Samuel 15:12 Early the next morning Samuel went to find Saul. Someone told him, “Saul went to the town of Carmel to set up a monument to himself; then he went on to Gilgal.” When Samuel finally found him, Saul greeted him cheerfully. “May the Lord bless you,” he said. “I have carried out the Lord’s command!” (NLT)
Dear Leader, If you erect monuments to yourself, you’re doing it wrong.
Also, if you do God’s will your way, this too is wrong.
Continuing along this same line, joyfully reporting on your half-measure obedience is also wrong, wrong, wrong.
Worse yet, those things we leave undone have a way of coming back to bite us. Compare 1 Samuel 15:1-3 with 2 Samuel 1:1-8. The unfinished business of 1 Samuel 15 led to the disaster of 2 Samuel 1.
Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Proverbs 3:5, 6
I will do God’s will God’s way in God’s timing.
Our Father, your will, your way, every night, and every day. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
Psalm 52:8, 9 ”But I am like a flourishing olive tree in the house of God; I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.“
