The Fight against God
“Jonathan spoke well of David to Saul his father and said to him, “Let not the king do wrong to his servant David; he has not wronged you, and what he has done has benefited you greatly.” 1 Samuel 19:4
Do you dare fight against the will of God? Perhaps the first answer that comes to your mind is: “No way, it would be a waste of time.” But we do it every time we do not accept God’s will for our lives.
King Saul did it, and maybe you without realizing it have proceeded in the same manner. God had chosen David to reign in Saul’s place, but he was fighting with all his strength so that no one would conquer his throne, we can say that Saul “swam and swam and died on the beach,” certainly no one can fight against God .
I would also like to point out Jonathan’s attitude regarding what was happening.
Jonathan was Saul’s son and therefore heir to the throne after the death of his father. He could have also been interested in ending David’s life, since he was going to take all of his “Rights” away, the throne of Israel. At the end of the day, the whole family would be very hurt; he could have chosen to stay on his father side.
But see the difference between them; Saul became very rebellious, even against God himself, showing hatred, anger and rebellion. Instead, Jonathan proved to be submissive and to have the character of God, accepting His will, he ignored his father’s game to turn against God, and accepted it and submitted to the will of God.
And you, have you submitted yourself to God’s will for your life or have you been fighting him? You already know, you would swim and swim and die on the beach, for who can fight against God himself? How many times have you instead in doing it? You been rebellious, you have been very angry, wanting to do everything your way, and certainly the consequences were not good.
If you have gone through a similar experience as a wife or as an assistant, please leave your comments, and be sure that it will help others.
I’ll leave you some examples that will help:
* You insisted on a relationship knowing that it wasn’t the will of God.
* You did not accept when another person took a responsibility for something that to your point of view you should have been chosen.
* God gave guidance, but you wanted to do things your way.
*God chose you to do something that was not of your liking, so you never gave it your best and therefore, it didn’t bare any fruit.
* You nurtured a friendship that wasn’t good for you, you knew it wasn’t God’s will, but you wanted to follow your own will.
*You and your husband were chosen to preach the word of God in another country or state and you did not agree, or said you didn’t want, or went reluctantly.
