Read 1 Samuel chapter 13


1 Samuel 13:14–But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him ruler of his people, because you have not kept the Lord’s command.


Saul was disobedient to God, even after God had been very clear about his need for obedience. As a result, God explains that Saul’s reign will not endure and his children will not be king after him. God is always looking for a person after His own heart. Are we someone who is constantly seeking after the heart of God?


Father, I desire to seek after You and Your heart. I know that You are the one who will be over everything that I do and I desire to glorify and praise You through my obedience to You.
