Chapter-a-Day I Samuel 19

"But then a black mood from God settled over Saul and took control of him…As [Saul] headed out for Naioth in Ramah, the Spirit of God was on him, too." I Samuel 19:9a & 23a. (TM)

Saul is an interesting study in God’s sovereignty. The king was at the very least temperamental and in the extreme he may have had some serious bi-polar issues. The guy was all over the map and a "crazy-maker" to everyone around him. And yet, the scripture points out that God was at work in the midst of Saul’s mood swings – in one chapter moving from homicidal darkness to spiritual ecstasy. I try to remember when dealing with very difficult people, that God is at work in their life and in my life and at the intersection of our lives.
