[The Glory Unveiled]
Because you [Saul] did not obey the voice of the Lord or execute His fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore the Lord has done this thing to you this day. [ 1 Samuel 28:18 ]
Humans are to God as gloves are to the hands [fingers]. The gloves cannot do anything by itself except what the hand bids it to. The gloves takes the shape and form of the hands so that it can be filled with the hands to perform as if the hand were doing it directly. We were created after the image and likeness of God so that we can do everything on earth as if God were doing the deeds Himself. Saul as the King of Israel at one time was supposed to be a representation of the desires, mood and emotions of God. So that a people could tell much about God by looking at the king. Saul was called into that office of being a container through whom God could let out His identity and person; His glory. At a time, God was angry with the Amalekites and He wanted to express His wrath towards them through Saul because he was called out to represent the interests of God. But Saul decided, contrary to the emotions of God to spare the King of the Amalekites and some animals and the things he thought were worth saving. Whereas God had instructed him to kill everything; man or animal. And because Saul disobeyed, God took from him, the privilege of representing God and being used to demonstrate His moods. Just as a glove is only useful when it is filled with a hand, humans are only useful when filled with God. Unless we are in the service of God and being used for His pleasures and purposes, then we are not yet living. On Hence, we must let God fill us up with His Spirit so that we can represent Him.
Prayer_Bead: Omnipotent Father, Omniscient Lord, thank you for the privilege to be used for your glorious purposes. Touch my heart and let it beat for you. Amen.
