Would you be King?

Would you be King?

Would you be King… Saul?  Have you kept the spoils of others?  Have you gone ahead of God with your solutions and then pled mercy with your excuses?  Have you chose to ignore the Word of the Lord, for your own words of choice?  Could there be votes from the jury of your peers, never counted?  “Oh, but we could be a healing church.  We could be an apostolic church… greater things we could do?” 

So… Do I call you King Saul?

I know something about being king and serving my own kingdom…  I too have gotten ahead of my Lord.  I have taken the role of lead counsel for my case.  “Oh but we could be a Christian family; a marriage of ministry [taken from the spoil].  Greater things we could do… with Your Good News, O Lord.”

Oh my God, I did not see the warnings from my spirit until it was “too late”.  “Have I traded my birthright in You for a bowl of soup for my children?  Oh my God, say it’s not so!”  I did not think this to be true, but perhaps an enemy, adorned in deceit, had ensnared my ethics.  I am so tired of doing it wrong and then pleading with You to make it right.  My heart speaks “Please O Lord make me do it right the first time”.  I cry Jesus…

Oh my God, we are such an adulterous people… We have left the One we Love.  Traded for another…  We are but selfish children demanding our own wants be met… with Your good graces.  Lord God, how can You stand to look upon us?  Jesus, how could You bare to walk among us?  Holy Spirit, why have You not turned a deaf ear and mute tongue toward us? 

Oh my God, I pray mercy and Your good Grace as I lay across Your alter, before Your court…  “Holy Spirit, will You plead my case?  Jesus, may I have Your Appeal?  God, may I have a ‘rehearing’?”

And as a revelation returned to me, I heard a great Word…

“Get on your face before Me, and tell Me who it is… you love!”

There is Good News for us.   What we have, and what King Saul could only dream of, is GRACE… Immanuel, He who walks with us.  “May we return to the Love of our youth (‘Our God’)!  Train us up, O Lord, in the way we should go.  Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit, that when the enemy makes an appearing, we will not depart from You.”  …First Love

“Get on your face before Me, and tell Me who it is… you love!”

And I cry…  “KING JESUS“!
