Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 28:3-20; 31:1-6 (day four)

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)

One thought on “Repent”

  1. Consulting a medium was completely forbidden by God. Saul’s ignored God’s warnings and his disobedience, I believe, contributed to his downfall.
    Ignoring God’s warnings is a huge mistake. As we journey through life, we should seek and wait on God for guidance and direction. Obeying God’s direction is the only way to avoid huge consequences.

    Disobedience always comes with a huge cost! Just like Saul, God will depart from those who ignore His warnings. Turn to God, not mediums!
