DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Samuel 1-3

VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Abner sent messengers on his behalf to David, saying, “Whose is the land?” saying also, “Make your covenant with me, and indeed my hand shall be with you to bring all Israel to you.” And David said, “Good, I will make a covenant with you. But one thing I require of you: you shall not see my face unless you first bring Michal, Saul’s daughter, when you come to see my face.”” (2 Samuel 3:12-13)

REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is holy (Psalm 99:9). Our God is awesome, powerful, and full of understanding (Psalm 47:2 and Psalm 147:5). Our God is love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of justice (Isaiah 45:21). In today’s study of the Bible we read about how David heard about the death of King Saul and his sons, how David was anointed King of Judah, and the tragic event between Joab and Abner. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that our God is the God of love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). When the Lord Jesus Christ was asked about the greatest commandment, His answer noted that all the law and the prophets point to love (Matthew 22:37-40). In life, it is always best for us to seek counsel from God (Psalm 33:11). When we keep God’s instructions, we stay in the way of life (Proverbs 10:17). God surrounds His people who obey Him with favor (Psalm 5:12). Thank God for the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57), and for the gift and the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). By the grace of God, make the choice to always live the kind of life that honors God, and may God bless you today, everyday, 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:

JESUS SAID;
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)

JESUS SAID;
“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

JESUS SAID;
“Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.” (Luke 12:42-43)

JESUS SAID;
“A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’” (Luke 19:12-13)

JESUS SAID;
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:1-3)

“So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”” (1 Samuel 30:8)

REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the faithful and covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10). Our God is gracious and compassionate (Psalm 145:8). Our God blesses all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 128:1). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Saul consulted with a medium to speak with Prophet Samuel, the Princes of Philistine distrusted David, David sought for counsel from God, found an Egyptian, then defeated the Amalekites and was able to recover all the losses, and we also read about the death of King Saul and his sons. As believers in God, it is always important to keep in mind that obedience to God is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22). God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9), and God’s judgments are effective in the whole Earth (Psalm 105:7). It is good to seek God (1 Chronicles 16:11), to have faith in God (Mark 11:22 and Hebrews 11:6), and to wait for God’s answer (Psalm 27:14). Today, God is offering His eternal salvation to everyone that will come to Him for salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved, 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.

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.

JESUS SAID;
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)

“Then Jonathan, Saul’s son, arose and went to David in the woods and strengthened his hand in God. And he said to him, “Do not fear, for the hand of Saul my father shall not find you. You shall be king over Israel, and I shall be next to you. Even my father Saul knows that.” So the two of them made a covenant before the LORD. And David stayed in the woods, and Jonathan went to his own house.” (1 Samuel 23:16-18)

JESUS SAID;
“Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:6-8)

JESUS SAID;
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
