What a view from the tram going from one conversation to another. #Budapest

Fighting my own battles? Or trusting the Lord?

In 1 Samuel I just read of the people demanding a king…

“But the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel. And they said, “No! But there shall be a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.””

‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭8:19-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Are we so very different? Don’t we want a human solution? Aren’t we often saying, “Oh, I don’t need God to handle this! I’ve got it.” Or “the government’s got it.” Or whomever. We turn to self or to fellow creatures rather than learning to depend on God.

Our Father sent Jesus to establish His kingdom.
