The subject at the Coronation of King Saul was mostly that the nation had rejected God as their King.
1 Samuel 12:20-25New King James Version (NKJV)
20 Then Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. 21 And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing. 22 For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people. 23 Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. 24 Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. 25 But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.”

After reigning as king for two years, King Saul takes an action which demonstrates a lack of reverence for God and blatant disobedient of God's commands. God lets him know that he could have been the first of the kings to reign forever but instead he would lose his throne. Not to be flippant, but that's gotta hurt.
I actually believe that many of us do miss out on amazing opportunities without perhaps even realizing what we've given up but choosing to compromise or by ignoring the still, small voice of God.
When the Ark of the Convenant is brought into the camp of the Israelite army, it says this:
1 Samuel 4:5New Living Translation (NLT)
5 When all the Israelites saw the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord coming into the camp, their shout of joy was so loud it made the ground shake!
Can you imagine if the Christian church today had that level of joy in the presence of God, how it could impact society in a huge way? What reasons do we have to feel joy in our lives?
The children of Israel are waiting for the opportunity to replace God Almighty as their King, it would seem.
1 Samuel 8:5-9New Living Translation (NLT)
5 “Look,” they told him, “you are now old, and your sons are not like you. Give us a king to judge us like all the other nations have.”
6 Samuel was displeased with their request and went to the Lord for guidance. 7 “Do everything they say to you,” the Lord replied, “for they are rejecting me, not you. They don’t want me to be their king any longer. 8 Ever since I brought them from Egypt they have continually abandoned me and followed other gods. And now they are giving you the same treatment. 9 Do as they ask, but solemnly warn them about the way a king will reign over them.”
One of the most beautiful passages in the Bible is in this chapter. It has been used in probably millions and millions of weddings:
Ruth 1:16-17New King James Version (NKJV)
16 But Ruth said:
“Entreat me not to leave you,
Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.
17 Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me.”
IT TOOK THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL 40 YRS...
LOOK AT SOME OF THE OTHER EXAMPLES WE HAVE, SOME PROMISES CAME IN AN INSTANT, SOME TOOK AWHILE, SOME YEARS, SOME AFTER THEIR DEATHS.
BUT, GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE.!!!!!!
HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE PROMISE KEEPER!!!

One week after another BYB podcast full of talk of what's wrong with the Tigers, Al and HookSlide revel in their undefeated week, ask what has changed, are impressed by Rick Porcello and J.D. Martinez, appreciate Torii Hunter's honestly, and wave back at Ian Kinsler.
Bless You Boys Podcast 117 was recorded June 27, 2014, has a running time of 56 minutes, and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
Things were looking dire last week. The Tigers had lost 3 straight to the Royals, dropping 1 ½ games back and appeared well on their way to 3rd place. Seven days later, the Tigers have 7 wins in a row, and are back to 4 1/2 games up in the Central. But what's changed in one week?
Rick Porcello is off to the best start of his career. Thursday night he tossed his first career shutout and second complete game, raising his record to 10-4 and lowering his ERA to 3.41.
Dave Dombrowski tells MLB Network Radio the team is confident Joe Nathan has turned the corner, and that if the Tigers do add bullpen help ahead of the trade deadline, it'll likely be for a seventh- or eighth-inning guy.
J.D. Martinez is named AL Player of the Week, and continues to bash the living Hell out of the ball.
The Tigers' corner outfield positions are getting crowded. Torii Hunter sees the writing on the wall and tells the media he is willing to take a part-time role if that's best for the team.
Ian Kinsler homered in his first at-bat in his return to Arlington, then waved to the Texas bench when running to first (with a huge smile on his face).Flying under the radar is Kinsler's bat, which has been just as hot as the Tigers named Martinez.
Tigers have reacquired Daniel Schlereth, assigning him to Toledo.
All that, and more!
God gives Israel the kind of king the world looks for -- he was the most handsome and the tallest. When Samuel tells him he is chosen by God to be the hope of Israel, he exhibits humility. But we find, as his story unfolds, that something may be lacking in this first human king of Israel.
1 Samuel 10:6New Living Translation (NLT)
6 At that time the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person.
