Notes from the Journey with David – 34

34. Why do you consult me now that the Lord has turned away from you (1 Samuel 28:16).
Samuel’s question seeks an explanation for Saul’s sudden interest in God’s direction. Clearly the Philistine threat has humbled him to a place he has not been in a long time. As Paul later says, “every knee will bow.” Unfortunately for many like Saul that moment will not come until it is too late. His disobedience and unrepentant hatred toward his successor has brought him to his end. Saul is one of thousands of stories that illustrate the importance of maintaining a heart that is tender and humble before God.
