DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Judges 14-17
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Samson called to the LORD, saying, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!”” (Judges 16:28)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the just God (Isaiah 45:21), our God is the greatest judge (Isaiah 26:7), and our God is fair to all (Deuteronomy 10:17). God is the God of justice (Isaiah 30:18), and God’s judgment is inescapable (Amos 9). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about Samson’s supernatural strength from God, Samson’s feast and his riddle, how Samson judged Israel for twenty years and fought with the Philistines, Samson and Delilah, the event of Samson’s final strength, and about Micah and the Levite from Judah. As believers in God, it is always important to have faith in God (Mark 11:22). It is always important to live wisely, and to live a holy life to God’s glory. Keep in mind that vengeance belongs to God (Romans 12:19 and Hebrews 10:30). God will faithfully judge all people (Psalm 67:3-4 and Psalm 96:13). No detail of justice escapes God, and you can always trust in God with your life (Proverbs 3:5-6). Therefore, it is good to make the choice to live faithfully to God, and to be blessed forevermore by God. Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:6-8)
“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)
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”” (Revelation 3:21-22)
