Edifier du Jour-1 Samuel 13:8-14(NASB)
8: Now he waited seven days, according to the appointed time set by Samuel, but Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattering from him. 9: So Saul said, "Bring to me the burnt offering and the peace offerings." And he offered the burnt offering. 10: As soon as he finished offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him and to greet him. 11: But Samuel said, "What have you done?" And Saul said, "Because I saw that the people were scattering from me, and that you did not come within the appointed days, and that the Philistines were assembling at Michmash, 12: therefore I said, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not asked the favor of the LORD.' So I forced myself and offered the burnt offering." 13: Samuel said to Saul, "You have acted foolishly; you have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you, for now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever. 14: "But now your kingdom shall not endure. The LORD has sought out for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has appointed him as ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you."Saul's a lot like some of us, very impatient. Instead of waiting for Samuel, the judge and priest, he went and gave the sacrifice himself. Not only did he lack patience, but he acted outside of his annointing. Being a high priest wasn't in the job description of king. While very few of the audience here are kings, most of us are guilty of front-running on God, being tired of waiting for God's timing and making things happen ourselves. Being a self-starter's OK if you haven't been told to wait. If you're supposed to wait, keep waiting. God will have something good at the end of the line.
