LORD God, your word is certain, and you do what you say you will do. Disobedience brings consequences. Guide me in the narrow way to carefully follow your precepts. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who teaches me for your name’s sake. I lift my prayer in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“The Lord has done to you as he spoke by me, for the Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hand and given it to your neighbor, David. Because you did not obey the voice of the Lord and did not carry out his fierce wrath against Amalek, therefore the Lord has done this thing to you this day.” (1 Samuel 28: 17-18 ESV)
