Introduction to The Hollow

King Saul

1 Samuel 13:1-14

Saul’s unwillingness to wait for Samuel to make the sacrifice before going into battle revealed Saul’s inability to wait upon and obey his commands. Without faith and patience, we can’t receive what the Lord promises, and unbelief and impatience are marks of spiritual immaturity. Until we learn to trust God and wait on his timing, we cannot learn the other lessons he wants to teach us, nor can we receive the blessings he has planned for us. Saul may have been stronger and taller than the other men, but if he didn’t have a heart that was right with God, he didn’t have anything.
