New International Version
But Samuel replied:
“Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king.” Then Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned. I violated the Lord’s command and your instructions. I was afraid of the men and so I gave in to them."
Who are you afraid of? God doesn't need anything we have. He only wants us to listen and obey. My problem is I always want to do it my way. But God wants it His way. Keep your eyes on God and they wont be on what people are doing or thinking. Disobeying is the sin of divination I don’t need that today. Listen for what God is saying not people. Then just trust and obey for there’s no other way as the old song said. My God fill you today overflowing with Him.
