DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 18-20
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“And David behaved wisely in all his ways, and the LORD was with him. Therefore, when Saul saw that he behaved very wisely, he was afraid of him. But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them.” (1 Samuel 18:14-16)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the wise and eternal God (1 Timothy 1:17). Our God gives wisdom to His people (James 1:5). Our God is powerful, gracious, and full of understanding (Psalm 145:8 and Psalm 147:5). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Saul became jealous of David, King Saul sought to execute and eliminate David, and Prince Jonathan made a Covenant with David. As believers in God, it is always important for us to trust God, and to maintain our faith in God (Mark 11:22). And, whenever things in life seem shaky, it becomes even more crucial that we trust in God fully and totally, knowing that God will never fail us, and that God will never forsake us. By the grace of God, always keep in mind that God is abundantly able to answer your prayers (1 Samuel 1:27-28, Psalm 55:16-17, and Isaiah 38:4-5). Walk humbly with God, and have strong confidence in God (Psalm 25:9). God will protect you from all harm, and God will protect you from all evil (Psalm 121:7-8). Thank God for His faithfulness. Amen. Be steadfast in faith, and may God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:
“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32-33)
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
“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)
