Saul Was Not Alone

 7.10.12



Saul was a humble man,
Until he realized that he was not alone.
There were more warriors,
More men in the fight.
He was a king,
But not The King
And he had forgotten that.

Saul's eyes looked at the young man,
And his heart was hardened.
One sling, five stones,
And Goliath, the man who feared not the Lord,
Fell and his spear brought his death.
Saul's heart did not rejoice.
The glory was not his,
The songs were not for him.

Pride found its way into the man,
Rage and Envy took over Saul's heart.
And he did not have eyes to see that
He was falling like the Philistine,
The warrior who did not fear the Lord.

Saul looked at himself in the mirror,
And only saw what he wanted to see,
A fake image of himself.
He kept deceiving his heart,
But the Lord was not with
Him anymore.

Pride anticipated his fall,
He did not hear the warning,
He rejected the voice of the Lord.
Pride had dominion over him,
He died imprisioned by Rage,
And Envy ate him alive.

The young man kept 
Hiding in caves,
Playing the harp,
Sharpening his sword,
Singing to the Lord.

The Lord was with David,
He waited and prayed,
And did not lose hope.
The shepherd of the sheep,
Became the shepherd of a nation.
The slayer of bears and lions,
And Philistines,
Became king.

The story lies there for us
To read,
To learn.
Pride precedes the fall of all those
Who reject God's Word.
Who think they are alone, 
And welcome Pride 
And Envy,
And Rage,
And look in the mirror
And find only
What they want to see.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
