Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes! ~ 1 Samuel 12:16
Samuel stands before the people who want to experience God's presence, but won't give up their selfish desires.
"What have you done?" Samuel asked. "You people are crazy, and you messed up! Sit back and watch what God is about to do! You will surely regret ignoring Him and giving your life to a human king."
Samuel warns us to pay attention! God is patient but He doesn't stand for being second.
You should ask God, "what 'king' am I inviting to rule my life?
