Men Worth Admiring Wait Patiently on God| EP. 113
“We should always be moving at the pace of God.” // Chad Zueck
On EP. 113 Chad we are in the book of 1 Samuel 13 as we talk about what it takes to be a man who patiently waits on God. In 1 Samuel 13:9 King Saul was told by Samuel to wait, but he gets impatient and offers up a burnt offering, disobeying God. He wasn’t believing that God was going to show up. Impatience clouds our judgment and it ultimately brings conflict with God. How can we become better men? By not chasing after instant gratification. A patent man can lead others.
- The next few weeks we will be in a series focusing on 1 Samuel 13 &14
- In 1 Samuel 13:5 we see two armies getting ready to battle, one is outnumbered, but they have God on their side
- “So he said, “Bring me the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings.” And Saul offered up the burnt offering.” 1 Samuel 13:9
- King Saul gets impatient and offers up a burnt offering, disobeying God. He was NOT seeking the Lord’s favor.
- He wasn’t believing that God was going to show up
- A burnt offering was an effort to restore the relationship between man and God. It was the job of a priest, not a king.
- “You have done a foolish thing,” Samuel said. “You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, he would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.” 1 Samuel 13:13
- “Men worth admiring patiently wait on God.” // Chad Zueck
- Saul became impatient with God and ultimately it cost him his kingdom

- The long-term spiritual development piece gets missed because we want instant gratification
- But we have to persevere and wait on God

- A patient man can lead others
