E is for Everything Pulled Together

I have a sweet mixture of old and new pieces. I feel like the old makes the new feel a bit more, well, less new.

Too Ashamed

“Even though you have sinned, don’t make it worse by also turning away from the Lord, just give Him all your heart”.  The only way to make this better is by committing your whole heart to the Lord.  Stop turning to those useless idols, haven’t you learned by now they can’t help you, they can’t rescue you because they are useless. 

Get It Off Your Chest

In our day this would be equivalent to a preacher, minister, evangelist who has gained popularity among Christians because they carry the anointing of the Lord.  Then along comes people who perhaps are jealous, or just plain miserable who decide to sow weeds by assaulting the minister’s character. 

Raise Your Voice in Worship

Samuel notices the look on Saul’s face and answering the unasked questions he states, “You wonder why I’m anointing you and honoring you with my deepest respect, is it not because you are chosen?”  I’ll put it another way, “Do you still not understand that you have been chosen, you are the chosen one”.   

Giving Up Freedom

God told Samuel to give them what they wanted, but before doing so, give them a fair warning of the reality of how things will be.  You see the grass on the other side is looking greener to them, but what they don’t realize is the grass is planted on a septic tank.
