Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.
Here's the scripture that stuck this week:
I Samuel 8:21-22 The Message
21-22 Samuel took in what they said and rehearsed it with God. God told Samuel, "Do what they say. Make them a king."
The elders of Israel weren't happy with Samuel and his son's leadership (and God's leadership, ultimately), so they decided to take matters into their own hands. They wanted a king, and God gave them what they asked for. As Samuel struggles with this, he does the thing that we should all do: He goes to God. It says that he "rehearsed it with God", which means to repeat it or recount it. God welcomes our questions. All He wants is for us to come back to Him. There may be times where we have to rehearse it to God, until we get it right.
