DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Kings 11-13
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So the LORD became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the LORD God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice, and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he did not keep what the LORD had commanded. Therefore the LORD said to Solomon, “Because you have done this, and have not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant.”” (1 Kings 11:9-11)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the faithful and covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10). Our God is gracious, slow to anger, and full of understanding (Psalm 103:8 and Psalm 147:5). Our God prefers obedience than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22-23). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about the unfortunate event of how King Solomon turned away from the LORD His God, Rehoboam was made king after Solomon, but Jeroboam reigned in Israel, and how a prophet from Judah warned King Jeroboam about idolatry. As believers in God, it always good for us to keep in mind that our God prefers obedience than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22-23). And, God prefers that we serve Him faithfully (Mark 11:22). Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Psalm 111:10). Amen. Thank God for His faithfulness (1 John 1:9). God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you always 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.
