Devo Prophet or King
1 Samuel 8:6-10 (NIV)
6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.” 10 Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king.
A prophet is just the voice of God. To be led by a prophet you had to trust in God’s protection not armies and your own strength. Now this could apply to a lot of areas of our lives, but for today we are talking about governments. God told Samuel give them what they ask for and I will punish them for rejecting the word of the Lord. Boy did Israel pay and pay. They still would get revelations from time to time and realize that God was the chariots and horses of Israel. In other words they would return to God and His prophets to get out of trouble. Oh if people today would return to God and see His mighty power, pray for our leaders. God will override their will and make them do what He wants. When in office there is a different set a rules for overriding the will of man. Dear Jesus wake up America please.
