DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Judges 8-10
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then the men of Israel said to Gideon, “Rule over us, both you and your son, and your grandson also; for you have delivered us from the hand of Midian.” But Gideon said to them, “I will not rule over you, nor shall my son rule over you; the LORD shall rule over you.”” (Judges 8:22-23)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the great God, the mighty God, the God of gods, and the Lord of lords (Deuteronomy 10:17). Our God provides counsel, judgment, and justice for all people and all nations (Psalm 33:5, Psalm 33:11, Psalm 94:10, Isaiah 30:18, Jeremiah 10:7, and Jeremiah 18:7-10). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Gideon conquered the Midianites’ kings, the events of Abimelech’s wickedness and his downfall, how Israel was humiliated because of the sin of idolatry, and about God’s mercy for Israel after they repented. As believers in God, it is important for us to have faith in God (Mark 11:22), and to remain faithful to God (John 14:15). Our God is good to all people, and God’s mercy can reach all people (Psalm 145:9). Today, God is offering His eternal salvation to all people that will come to Him for salvation (John 3:16-17). Now is the best time to seek God (Isaiah 55:6-7 and 2 Peter 3:9). Thank God for His eternal salvation! Thank God for His mercy! 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:
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17)
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
“Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” (John 8:11)
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)
