DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Samuel 8-10
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So David reigned over all Israel; and David administered judgment and justice to all his people.” (2 Samuel 8:15)
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). God provides justice, correction, and judgment for all peoples and all nations (Psalm 67:3-4, Psalm 94:10, Psalm 105:7, Jeremiah 10:7, and Jeremiah 18:7-10). God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9). God is gracious, God is kind, and God is full of compassion (Psalm 145:8 and Joel 2:12-13). God is always faithful to bless all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 25:10 and Psalm 128:1). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King David extended his kingdom, King David showed kindness to Mephibosheth, King David also showed kindness to Hanun, but Hanun was misinformed, and we also read about how King David and his army defeated the Ammonites and the Syrians. King David’s administration included Joab, Jehoshaphat, Zadok, Ahimelech, Seraiah, Benaiah, the Cherethites and the Pelethites, and David’s sons (2 Samuel 8:15-18). As believers in God, it always good to keep in mind that our God is the God of peace (Hebrews 13:20-21), but when the enemy fights against the counsel of God, we have the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57). 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). Thank God for all His blessings in our lives. Amen. 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, and forevermore 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)
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.” (Matthew 25:31-32)
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“Have faith in God.” (Mark 11:22)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
