DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Samuel 14-17
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “The advice of Hushai the Archite is better than the advice of Ahithophel.” For the LORD had purposed to defeat the good advice of Ahithophel, to the intent that the LORD might bring disaster on Absalom.” (2 Samuel 17:14)
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). The counsel of God stands forever (Psalm 33:11). God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9). 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 Joab’s scheme for Absalom to return to Jerusalem, Absalom’s conspiracy, and King David’s flight from Jerusalem into the wilderness, how Absalom entered Jerusalem to rule and reign, and about the advises from Ahithophel and Hushai. As believers in God, it is always important for us to understand, and to keep in mind that, true promotion comes from God (James 4:10). According to God’s commandments, it is good for us to honor our fathers and our mothers (Deuteronomy 5:16 and Proverbs 23:25). God is always faithful to bless everyone who keeps His commandments (Psalm 128:1). Thank God for His faithfulness. Amen. 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, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
