DISOBEDIENCE LEADS TO REJECTION, ECWA DEVOTIONAL
TUESDAY, 28 JULY
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 15: 16 – 35
TOPIC: DISOBEDIENCE LEADS TO REJECTION
Saul was asked to destroy the Amalekites, leaving no survivor, but he kept the best of the plunder and spared the life of their king, Agag. When confronted, he denied it, but later said that he had to bow to pressure from his people and that the animals and other valuable items taken were meant for sacrifice unto the Lord. Samuel made him understand that to obey is better than sacrifice and because he had rejected the command of the Lord, God had also rejected him as a king. Disobedience can ruin the blessing of God upon your life. When God blesses you, do not make light of His instructions.
QUESTION: Do you know that your act of disobedience can make God reject you?
PRAYER: Take away the spirit of disobedience from me oh Lord; Amen.
