DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 24-27
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Saul said to David, “May you be blessed, my son David! You shall both do great things and also still prevail.” So David went on his way, and Saul returned to his place.” (1 Samuel 26:25)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the great God, the God of gods, the Lord of Lords, the mighty and awesome God (Deuteronomy 10:17). Our God provides justice for all (Psalm 33:5 and Isaiah 30:18). Our God is the God of justice (Isaiah 45:21). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how David spared King Saul’s life the first time, David and Abigail met, and later got married, David also spared King Saul’s life the second time, and David moved and lived with Achish, King of Gath, for some time. As believers in God, it is always good and important to understand that loving one’s enemy can be challenging, but the Lord Jesus Christ has called us to love all our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 5:43-45 and Matthew 22:37-40). Truly, vengeance belongs to God (Romans 12:19 and Hebrews 10:30), and there is no doubt that God will repay all the wicked what is due to them (Psalm 7:11). Nonetheless, today is the day of salvation, and God is calling all to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). Now is the time to seek God (Isaiah 55:6-7). Thank God for His love. Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Be blessed by God today, 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:
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 5:43-45)
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” (John 13:17)
