TOPIC: WHAT ARE YOUR DESIRES? TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 8:15–22

The Israelites wanted to be like other nations that had kings as their rulers. They were ready to stage a walk out on God’s leadership.

Samuel told them the consequences of their demand but because of their desire, which ran contrary to what God expected, they would not listen.

Though God granted their desire in His permissive will, it did not mean that their request was granted in His perfect will.


We must be careful not to let other people’s values and actions dictate our attitudes and behavior.

We must allow the Lord to have His way in our decisions, through prayer and counseling.

QUESTION: Have you sought the face of the Lord on what you are planning to do?

PRAYER: Help me Lord to avoid taking decisions that run contrary to Your perfect will; Amen.
