DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Chronicles 4-7
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“The sons of Levi were Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. The sons of Kohath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. The children of Amram were Aaron, Moses, and Miriam. And the sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.” (1 Chronicles 6:1-3)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18), Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9), and Our God is the Merciful God (Psalm 103:8). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about the family genealogies of Judah, Reuben, Gad, Manasseh, Levi, Issachar, Benjamin, Naphtali, Ephraim, Asher, and their land locations from both the eastern and the western areas of the Jordan River. And in addition, we can learn some very important lessons from the prayer of Jabez, and how God responded to him (1 Chronicles 4:10). Indeed, God does hear the prayers of His people (Proverbs 15:29). Amen. And as believers in God, it is also very important to note that from the family of Levi (1 Chronicles 6:1-3), God provided His Laws to Israel and to all of mankind, but from the family of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:1-2), God provided His Messiah to Israel and to all of mankind, the Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 4:9-10). Thank God for the victory over sin, death, and eternal condemnation, through the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57)! Amen. Thank God for His everlasting mercy and salvation (Psalm 107:1)! Amen. Thank God for His everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3)! Amen. Thank God for the sacrifice that the Lord Jesus Christ was willing to endure in order to help save all of us (John 3:16-17)! Amen. Give glory to the Most High God in Jesus’ Name, Amen!
WORDS OF JESUS:
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.” (John 6:47)
