King Saul was a man who had been given much on this earth, but his life is not one to be mimicked. “So Saul died for his unfaithfulness which he had committed against the LORD, because he did not keep the word of the LORD, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance.” (1 Chronicles 10:13 NKJV) We see many times throughout scripture where those with a strong faith were commended and blessed. “But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.'” (Mark 5:33-34 NKJV) If we have faith like this woman and obey our God, it does not mean a perfect life on this earth, but it does mean an external life with Him!
