DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Judges 11-13
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he passed through Gilead and Manasseh, and passed through Mizpah of Gilead; and from Mizpah of Gilead he advanced toward the people of Ammon. And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD, and said, “If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD’s, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering.”” (Judges 11:29-31)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is love (1 John 4:16), our God is just (Isaiah 45:21), and our God is holy (Psalm 99:9). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Jephthah made a vow to God and defended Israel, how Jephthah and the Gileadites defeated the Ephraimites in a battle, and we also read about the announcement of the birth of Samson by God’s Angel. As believers in God, it is always good to keep in mind that, God is always there for us, even if everything else in life may fail, but God will not fail us (Isaiah 46:4 and Isaiah 49:15). With God all things are truly possible (Matthew 19:26). God is our anchor for life (John 10:10), and it is always good for us to be careful about the vows that we make to God (Proverbs 4:23 and Ecclesiastes 5:2). In overall, it is important to note that we can always offer our thanksgiving to God (Psalm 50:14), and that we can praise God for all His blessings in our lives. Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“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)
“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6-7)
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:17-18)
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
