Disappointing God

Then the word of the Lord came to Samuel. “I regret that I made Saul king, for heq has turned away from following Me and has not carried out My instructions. So Samuel became angry and cried out to the Lord all night. 1Samuel 15:11 HCSB

In my forty years I ministry there have been some times when I have regretted enlisting someone to teach or to lead a group. I though they would be a good leader but they di not live up to my expectations. Either they did not have leadership skills or they lead people in the wrong way. It was not easy, but a few times I have had to ask someone to step down from a leadership position because of their inability to lead correctly.

The Lord regretted that He had made Saul king because he was not following God and His commands. He was doing want he thought was best rather than trusting God and His directions. Samuel also regretted anointing Saul as king and cried out to the Lord all night.
