I was listening to the radio today and I heard a sermon. At one part of the sermon the preacher pointed out how disobedience to a direct command from Your Father can have consequences not immediately realized. His example was Mordecai and Haman. Mordecai was descended from Saul and Haman from King Agag of the Amelekites. Saul was ordered to utterly destroy the Amelekites bur he spared the king, Agag, and the choice livestock. Your Father was angry and took the kingdom from Saul and gave it to David. Because of Saul’s disobedience, Haman was around to attempt to destroy Mordecai and his fellow Jews.
Now this was a result of Saul’s disobedience. I got to thinking, Jesus, if there has been at some point in my life when I have been disobedient in something Your Father had planned for me and I did not obey. I know I have disobeyed in a lot of ways but was there something of bigger significance that I am not aware of. Please, Lord, if there has been something let me know and enable me to make steps to fix it.
