Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 24 (day seven)
1 Samuel 24:20 “Now, behold, I KNOW that you will surely be king, and that the Kingdom of Israel will be established in your hand.”
Saul finally said out loud the reality that they had been living for a long time. Saul finally said, “I know”. I know what God is doing in this situation. Sometimes it takes us decades and scars to figure out the will of God, but when we finally look up and say, “I know”, what then?
How are we to respond to God when our hard heads finally realize that God is at work in a situation? The faithful thing to do would be to immediately drop everything and get in line with God. More realistically though, we walk the other way like Saul did, going back to the comfort of our own homes. We are going to face days in our lives when the will of God is contrary to our own desires, when our flesh just wants to run home. Don’t run. Resist the flesh by trusting the will of God, and you will see the Kingdom of God in ways you never thought possible.
