Saul and the silence of God

RE Verse reading–Micah 1:1-6, 2:1-3, 3:1-8 (day three)  “They will cry out to the Lord, but He will not answer them”  (3:4)  It is a terrible story.  I Samuel tells it.  After years of warning, years of patient grace, the Lord stops answering Saul.  “When Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by the prophets”  (1 Samuel 28:6)  We understand the wisdom of God.  At some point, God must ACT in judgement.  More talking does no good.  Until we can be honest with ourselves, and with Him, there is nothing more to say.  Micah sees the same moment on the horizon for Judah.  It is a great mercy for the Lord to warn us against such a moment.  “Seek the Lord while He may be found” says Isaiah. (vs 55:6)  May the Lord use His word to give urgency and priority to the things of the Spirit.  While there is opportunity, we should act!
