I find it hard to read that God ‘regretted’ making Saul King, surely he knew the outcome when he appointed him?
Becky – I just listened to The Bible Recap about this passage, and it was really helpful yet again. She said the word translated “regret” here can also be translated “grieved.” So, He didn’t make the wrong choice, but it still grieved Him to see Saul fall away. God’s best was not for Israel to have an earthly king, but he gave them one because of the hardness of their hearts.
What a powerful message I needed to hear in this time! “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
