Devo Rebellion and walking with God Part 3
1 Samuel 15:23 (NIV)
23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
he has rejected you as king.”
1 Samuel 15:12 (NIV)
12 Early in the morning Samuel got up and went to meet Saul, but he was told, “Saul has gone to Carmel. There he has set up a monument in his own honor and has turned and gone on down to Gilgal.”
“Arrogance is like the evil of idolatry.” Idolatry is self-worship not God worship. This is what got Satan thrown out of heaven. Saul sets a monument up to himself giving himself the credit for God’s victory. I think every leader has had someone who works under them that thinks of themselves more highly than they should and then finds themselves gone. It is out right rebellion. Look what I have accomplishes by my own greatness. Sad, but continues to happen. Give God the glory and He will lift you up.
