DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Joshua 7-9
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Now the LORD said to Joshua: “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land. And you shall do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king. Only its spoil and its cattle you shall take as booty for yourselves. Lay an ambush for the city behind it.”” (Joshua 8:1-2)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the greatest giver, and the giver of life (Genesis 1 and John 3:16-17). God has already given all true believers the authority to overcome all powers of evil (Luke 10:19-20). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Achan committed sin and was judged by God, the defeat of Ai, the deceit of the Gibeonites, and the lessons learned. As believers in God, it is always important to keep in mind, the victory that the Lord Jesus Christ has already achieved for all believers (1 Corinthians 15:57). By the grace of God, it is always important to make the choice to live a holy life to God’s glory, and to always ask God for His counsel whenever there is uncertainty about something (Joshua 9:14-16). Thank God for the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ! Praise God! Give glory to God! Amen.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:19-20)
