Samuel’s rebuke of Saul…1 Samuel 15:23 (NKJV Strong’s Bible)
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”
I know what it’s like to rebel against God. It is bewitching, intoxicating and ultimately futile.
In contrast to Saul, all the way through God’s word, there is example after example of people who were outnumbered but completely dependent on God, and they came through.
But when you get into pride, you fall into the same trap as Saul, which is really the same sin as satan.
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
