DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 1-3
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel had been established as a prophet of the LORD. Then the LORD appeared again in Shiloh. For the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.” (1 Samuel 3:19-21)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the faithful and covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10). Prayer works (James 5:13-15), God hears our prayers, and God is always faithful to answer our prayers according to His will (1 Samuel 1:27-28, Psalm 55:16-17, and Isaiah 38:4-5). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about the birth of Prophet Samuel, Hannah’s prayer and her testimony to praise God, how the sins of Eli’s sons were exposed, and how Prophet Samuel warned Eli. As believers in God, it is always good for us to honor God, and if we are called by God to serve Him, we should always serve God faithfully (John 12:26). And in addition, it is always important for parents to truly practice training their children in the ways of God (Proverbs 22:6 and Ephesians 6:4). Thank God that He answered Hannah’s prayer! Praise God! Thank God for His faithfulness! Give glory to God in Jesus’ Name, Amen! By the grace of God, as God leads you, you can take some time to worship God. God is worthy of our praises, thanksgiving, and honor. Give glory to God in Jesus’ Name, 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)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“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 the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24)
“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” (John 12:26)
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)
