DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Chronicles 18-20
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So David reigned over all Israel, and administered judgment and justice to all his people.” (1 Chronicles 18:14)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
God is Our Greatest Leader, God is Our Savior, and God is Our Eternal King (Deuteronomy 10:17, Isaiah 43:11-12, and 1 Timothy 1:17). Our God is the True God (John 17:3). Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9). Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). Our God provides healing, salvation, protection, restoration, resurrection, and eternal life (1 Kings 17:14, Psalm 103:1-5, John 3:16-17, and John 11:25-26). The counsel of God stands forever (Psalm 33:11). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21), and Our God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King David extended His kingdom and made dedications to God, King David and his army defeated the Ammonites and the Syrians in battles, and the Philistines’ giants were slain. King David’s administration included Joab, Jehoshaphat, Zadok, Abimelech or Ahimelech, Seraiah or Shavsha, Benaiah, the Cherethites and the Pelethites, and David’s sons (2 Samuel 8:15-18 and 1 Chronicles 18:14-17). It is also important to note that, in today’s study of the Bible, King David showed kindness to Hanun, but Hanun was misinformed. As believers in God, it is always good and important for us to seek counsel from God (Psalm 33:11). God’s leadership supersedes all (1 Timothy 1:17), and God is always faithful to bless all His people who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Amen. Truly, 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 today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
