DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 11-13
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart. And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing. For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you His people.”” (1 Samuel 12:20-22)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the God of mercy (Psalm 100:4-5, Psalm 103:8, Hosea 6:6, and Jude 20-21). Our God is compassionate (Psalm 111:4). Our God does wonderful works (Psalm 40:5, Psalm 107:8, and Psalm 139:14). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Saul defeated the Ammonites and he rejoiced before God with the people of Israel, Prophet Samuel gave a speech to the people, and Israel was in distress. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that God is Our Savior (Isaiah 43:11-12). During the good times and the bad times, we should always seek to trust in God with all our hearts (Psalm 18:2, Psalm 18:30, Proverbs 3:5-6, and Isaiah 12:2). Based on the Bible, all people have sinned (Romans 3:21-26), but we are saved by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10). The Lord Jesus Christ came to save the world from sin and from eternal destruction. Thank God for His Amazing Love for all of us! God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people that will come to Him for salvation (John 3:16-17). Thank God for the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38)! If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God (John 3:16-17). Amen! May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore 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)
“But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” (Matthew 9:13)
“For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.” (Matthew 18:11)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:19-20)
“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)
