Throughout his time as king, Saul did things his own way. Here at the end of his life, he died that same way. God warned Saul he would die in battle with the Philistines, but he went anyway. When he was injured, his death seemed inevitable. At no point did Saul turn to God, but instead literally took his life into his own hands. His life and reign were a disgrace. Saul had feared his enemies more than he had trusted God. Spend a few minutes sharing your fears with God and ask Him to help you trust Him more than you are afraid of the things you fear.
