1 Samuel 7
Some of us may remember the ketchup commercial many years ago where two small boys are waiting for the ketchup to make its way from the bottle to the hamburger. In the background is the song “Anticipation” which draws upon the value of waiting for a good thing. The commercial was updated several years later with the same song, also using a hamburger, but the two boys were gone. Instead, it begins with the song playing then a hand holding a plastic bottle of ketchup appears. We get the first few bars of the song and then we get the sound of ketchup burping out of a plastic bottle. These two commercials might well represent two kinds of people today: one patiently waiting for God to fulfill His purposes, the other impatiently trying to force matters along. Waiting is not easy, especially when it involves uncertainty, hardship and pain but it is one of God’s most effective tools in bringing about spiritual life. As we resume our study in 1 Samuel 7, we find important truths that help us face the long days of uncertainty in our own time.
