The Mighty Had Fallen


1 Samuel 31:1-13

The Story

Saul had ben a good and godly man in the beginning of his reign.

But he had rejected God's plan for his life.

He had refused to walk with the LORD.

And God had rejected him.

Saul began to fall into insanity.

He showed jealousy and hatred toward David.

He wanted him dead.

But God in His sovereign plan protected David.

David survived and thrived during those years when he was on the run from Saul.

He grew stronger while his enemy Saul grew weaker.

And here was recorded the awful and tragic death of Saul and his three sons.

Lessons

Many of us have tested the goodness of God.

Some of us have rebelled against God and refused to listen to Him.

It is terrible to fall into the hand of God.

Blessings will be withdrawn and punishments will await us.

Remember...

Saul had rebelled against the LORD God to his death and God had punished him.
