Day 109

Today’s Reading – I Samuel Chapters 28-31 and Psalm 18

He inquired of the LORD, but the LORD did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets.
I Samuel 28:6
Why is God silent towards Saul?
Won’t God answer everyone who seeks Him?
Not always; apparently not when you are in a place of judgment as Saul is.

King Saul has rejected and is currently rejecting God’s previously revealed will.
Since Saul doesn’t care to obey God in what he already knows, God will not give him more to know.

Not that different from our own lives.

We want to know God’s will for our lives, but often when it is revealed we respond with a “No thanks, try again!”

The saying goes, “Don’t ask for an answer if your aren’t willing to hear the response!”

Tomorrow’s Reading – Psalms 121, 123-125, and 128-130


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
