DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 4-7
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you return to the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the LORD, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.” So the children of Israel put away the Baals and the Ashtoreths, and served the LORD only.” (1 Samuel 7:3-4)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the God of gods, and our God is the Lord of lords (Deuteronomy 10:17). Our God is the true God (John 17:3). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how in a battle, the Philistines overcame the Israelites initially, and took the Ark of God from Israel, how Eli passed away, the events of the Philistines with the Ark of God, how the Philistines returned the Ark of God back to Israel, and how the Israelites finally defeated the Philistines. As believers in God, it is always important to keep in mind that there is a spiritual battle going on with the enemy of the souls of mankind, but by the grace of God, we have the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57). God loves all people, and wants to save all the people that will come to Him for salvation (John 3:16-17). Thank God for His faithfulness. Amen. Our God is the awesome God (Psalm 47:2), and our God does wonders (Exodus 15:11). It is good to serve God faithfully (Matthew 6:24). Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved by God, you can repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, 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:
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
“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)
