“Sh’mu’el (Samuel) was not pleased to hear them say, Give us a king to judge us; so he prayed to Adonai.”
1 Samuel 8:6 CJB
God appointed judges to give the instructions and guidance from Him the ultimate King! But instead the people wanted to be like all the other ordinary nations around them and install a king from among the people. We need to be careful of doing the same thing allowing the leaders of the world to guide and direct our lives!
“So do what they say, but give them a sober warning, telling them what kinds of rulings their king will make.”
1 Samuel 8:9 CJB
The same warning goes for us today also! The rulers we have ruling over us today constantly tell us they speak for us, they do what is in our best interest and this couldn’t be more untrue! Only God can speak for us and do what is in our best interests!
“”Know today, and establish it in your heart, that Adonai is God in heaven above and on earth below-there is no other.”
Deuteronomy 4:39 CJB
Today, be careful of allowing the leaders of the world to guide and direct you, but instead let’s cling to Adonai, the creator of the universe!
Have a blessed day!
