Get Real

I love the sheer honesty of this verse:  “‘I regret that I have made Saul king, for he has turned back from following me and has not performed my commandments.’ And Samuel was angry, and he cried to the Lord all night” (1 Samuel 15:11, ESV).  Samuel was angry. He cried to The Lord all night. No games. No pretense. He wasn’t trying to impress God. Sheer emotional honesty before His Lord and God. If we can’t be honest with an omniscient (all-knowing) God, with whom can we be?  Quit trying to impress God. Be honest. Be open. Get real with Him and see how He can work in your life.
