Breach of Faith
So Saul died for his breach of faith. He broke faith with the LORD in that he did not keep the command of the LORD, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance.
1 Chronicles 10:13
Seeing God at work in a world that is miserable
will test resolve and power to believe.
The problem is that God is invisible
and is apprehended by data only souls receive.
When times get hard we can easily forget
that God is there in the leanest days.
We tend to focus on what our own hands get
us. We walk around in a spiritual haze.
Then circumstances force us to big decision
with consequences we did not comprehend.
We may ignore God by our own volition
and disobey Him to gain our own ends.
God's gracious call comes in that sin
to ask us there and then to repent
and turn away from the mess we're in,
return to God, from faithlessness relent.
Pain attends, resistance hurts, judgment in the wake
of stubborn hearts... in selfish pride we bathe.
Hardened by sin, God's justice falls, death at stake...
all because we turned from God, sin gave us, just breach of faith.
