Waiting is hard to do. Being at the mercy of others and circumstances makes us feel vulnerable. So, we grow impatient. Can you relate? Today we move on to the next story in 1 Samuel 13, which illustrates the tragic outcome of impatience with the Lord. It’s a story where King Saul fails to exercise a patient faith. As a result, he forfeits not only his future but the legacy of his lineage and puts Israel’s future in jeopardy too. His lack of trust that God is sovereign–not his circumstances or fears–leads to a trial becoming a tragedy. But, by God’s grace, the Lord had another king ready to take Saul’s place who would prove to be a man after His own heart. Pastor Andrew Arthur helps us consider how, thankfully, God is still patiently at work and faithful even when we are not.

asking and attempting to answer the question, “What are you looking for?” helps us discover what governs our hearts in a given moment or even over the course of a lifetime. The human heart is not made to be autonomous. It needs and desires to be ruled by a king. The question is will it be ruled by a king that will be swept away?
Whatever it is that you are looking for–whatever it is that you desire–you can find it by fixing the eyes of your faith on King Jesus and submitting to His rule. He will never exploit you. He will never humiliate you. He will never abandon you. He is the King that death itself could not sweep away. Take a listen to this sermon by Pastor Andrew Arthur in our continued study of 1 Samuel 12 in light of Easter Sunday.
