God’s Voice

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

“He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”-Jesus, Luke 16:31

God’s allowing Samuel to rise from the dead is most definitely curious, surprising even, but the message he delivered to Saul most certainly was not. The message was the same message he had heard several times before, to no avail. These hard words had never led Saul to repentance, nor would they now.

Never take God’s Word for granted; never pass by His voice heard in the Scriptures. You never have to go elsewhere to find the will of God for your life, and though His words can be hard at times, they are meant from your good. So, seek God now; listen to His words today; repent while repentance can be found.

One thought on “God’s Voice”

  1. I doubt that the “Samuel” who communicated with Saul was an angel of God speaking from beyond the grave. The demon was speaking to Saul.

    I am convinced that we should seek God’s voice while we are still living, not Satan’s voice through his demons. God’s words are the source of wisdom and righteousness. I believe that some of God’s words are hard to apply in our earthy life because of competing environments that we live in but they are the source of personal restraints and self-control for our own good.

    In this life, God gives us two choices: to listen to Him or to refuse to listen to Him. How we choose to live our lives on earth will determine our final destination when we die. Whom we choose to seek to follow and to listen will reveal our wisdom. Definitely, consulting a medium instead of God will bring self-destruction; and listening to a demon through the dead will bring depression, not hope and joy.

    God is full of grace and mercies. Repentance is the only way for us to be closer to God. I am convinced that if we have walked away from Him, turn back to God and He will reconnect with us and allow us to hear from Him again. If we stay in Him, He will stay in us. It is a two-way communication process.

    Wishing you all a Blessed Memorial Day weekend.
