Today’s Word: King

Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” 1 Samuel 8:4-5

Some times we just don’t realize how good we have it, and so we are no better than the people of Israel when they asked Samuel to find them a King. They had the Almighty God for a King to rule over them, but they wanted someone whom they could see like all the other nations around them. This should be a lesson to us not to crave what we see others with, because what we may have could be worth much more that the other person.

God blesses us each and every day with many intangible blessings, but many of us still rejects those beautiful gifts, and continue to wait for something that can be seen. Even as Christians we do this and do not stop to think that when we reject the intangible blessings that God bestows upon us, we are also rejecting Him.

But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the LordAnd the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 1 Samuel 8:6-7

The above text also shows how God has given us a free will, and that He will never force Himself on us. The people wanted a king, and God told Samuel to give the people what they wanted.

“Which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.” 1 Timothy‬ ‭6:15-16‬ ‭NIV

King of my heart, The blessed Lord that reigns, Ruler of it all; The Undisputed, lover of my soul. Blessings!

From Psalm 97:1
“The Lord is king!
Let the earth rejoice;
let the many coast-lands be glad!”
We should praise our God who created the earth and all that abounds on it, above it, and below it. All people should go out and proclaim His goodness.

John 18:37 King James Version (KJV)
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
What came to my mind when I read those words is very interesting, and it is simply this: We cannot follow someone who we do not have a relationship with. Thankfully I am a committed Christian today, but when I did not know Yeshua I did not want to have anything to do with Him either just like the Israelites, and I certainly was not obedient to his direction. Reading that passage I felt the heartbreak of our amazing God especially when He said to Samuel that they are not rejecting you they are rejecting Me. I love that passage of scripture because it reaffirms the living realtionship I have with Jesus, and that I will always love and follow Him. I am so grateful that because of His saving Grace, He has brought me out of that darkness into His marvelous light.

And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
