DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Samuel 14-17
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.” So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!” Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah.” (1 Samuel 16:11-13)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the faithful and covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10). God blesses all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 128:1). God prefers obedience than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22-23), and God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Saul made an oath and made a sacrifice, King Saul sinned and was rejected by God, Prophet Samuel anointed David as King of Israel according to God’s command, and how in a battle, David defeated Goliath. As believers in God, it is always important to keep in mind that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd (John 10:7, 11, and 14). Jesus is the Savior and the True Messiah that God sent to Earth for mankind to receive eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). God the Father has already set His seal on the Lord Jesus Christ (John 6:27). If you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be saved by God (John 3:16-17). Amen. 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.
