Saul has sunken to his lowest point spiritually. When he could not discern a word from the Lord…just as Samuel had told him would happen…he reached out to a Spirit Medium. In Leviticus 19:31 and 20:6, we have one of the strongest and specific prohibitions against consulting a medium. “As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.” It was idolatry. At any point along his journey, Saul could have repented before the Lord. Rather than repent though, each time he moved further and further away from the Lord.
Do you need to repent? Is there an area of your life that you have consistently chosen to disobey the Lord? It is never too late to repent. “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.” (Isaiah 55:6)
