Watchin1g God Not the Enemy
S. 1 Samuel 13:6 "The men of Israel saw what a tight spot they were in, and because they were hard pressed by the enemy, they tried to hide in caves, thickets, rocks, holes and cisterns."
O. Later in v. 12 Say was "compelled" to offer the sacrifice. Saul and his men had their focus on the enemy's movements rather than upon the Lord."
A. I need to keep my eyes upon the Lord and His call for my life. As I (and you too) do this I must remember to also "delight" myself in Him (Psalm 37).
P. Father, forgive us when our eyes are upon the movements of the enemy. Help us to focus on you with faith and fascination of your mighty movements.
