urn with me if you would to the Book of I Samuel the fifteenth chapter. Now
this is what i was getting to last week but never really got to it and i would apologize for that but i won't.
want to talk
to you for just a few minutes this morning about choices. The choices that we make. Pick up the paper anymore and it's really
quite depressing to read about the choices people make. And not only that but they make the choice but then they blame it on someone
else. We see people make wrong decisions
and sometimes it takes years for
those decisions to produce the bad
fruit that comes from that. We want
to think like God's children and
that wants to overshadow all the choices
that we make. We will always want to
consider His will in the things that we
do. Now we have to be reminded of
that or we're going to forget it. That's
one reason we're here to be reminded that we're His children. We seek His
will and not ours. We seek to please
Him and not ourselves. We seek to be
servants and not masters.
verse one says, "Samuel also said unto Saul,
The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be King
over His people
." His people it's says, "over
. "Now therefore hearken thou unto
the voice of the words of the Lord
ow you see
here that Samuel says that the Lord has sent him and
there's plenty of scriptures in the Old
Testament .. we won't go to any of them but ..
there's some in particular in Proverbs
that point out how the Lord has set up
and established the Kings and He also takes
them down. And if they follow Him and
they make the right decisions and choices
and follow His leading then He's going
to bless them and they're going to prosper.
If they do otherwise then they're going
to suffer the consequences. It's somewhat the same way with us.
It says King over His people. Now i believe
The Lord sets up the rules over His people.
I believe the Lord sends the servants
for His people. I hope i'm included in that
number. I believe the Lord has sent this
servant this day to deliver a particular
message for him to speak for the Lord.
