Read 1 Chronicles 10
Lack of faith in God is not just a shortcoming, it is a sin.
When we place our faith in anything other than God, we are putting that ahead of God. In this we are essentially saying to God, “I don’t need you.”
I don’t know about you, but I need God.
I hear so many “Christians” talk about going to see psychics, reading their daily horoscope, or watching Long Island Medium, it makes me sick to my stomach. Saul died for this very reason. He put his faith in a medium rather than in God.
Is there anything you put more faith in than God? Dreams, visions, soothsayers, psychics, tarot readings, horoscopes, zodiac, astrology, anything that is not the one true living God? If there is, please stop calling yourself a Christian. You merely believe that God exists and are not following His son Jesus, the one we call Christ.
“But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” – Joshua 24:15b
“So Saul died for his breach of faith. He broke faith with the LORD in that he did not keep the command of the LORD, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the LORD. Therefore the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse.” – 1 Chronicles 10:13-14
