DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 1 Kings 14-17
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Asa did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did his father David. And he banished the perverted persons from the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. Also he removed Maachah his grandmother from being queen mother, because she had made an obscene image of Asherah. And Asa cut down her obscene image and burned it by the Brook Kidron. But the high places were not removed. Nevertheless Asa’s heart was loyal to the LORD all his days.” (1 Kings 15:11-14)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the faithful and covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10). Our God is the true God (John 17:3), and the eternal King (1 Timothy 1:17). Our God is the God of gods, and our God is the Lord of lords (Deuteronomy 10:17). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about Prophet Ahijah’s prophecy to King Jeroboam, the kingdom reigns of Abijam, Asa, Nadab, Baasha, Elah, Zimri, Omri, and Ahab, and how Prophet Elijah showed God’s power in miracles, wonders, and he raised the Zarephath widow’s son from being sick and dying. As believers in God, it is always important for us to keep in mind that our God is the true God (John 17:3), and it is always essential for us to serve God faithfully (Mark 11:22). In addition, it is always important for us to keep in mind that, our God is the God of provision, and our God is able to restore, replenish, and to multiply our provisions in the seasons of drought (1 Kings 17:14). Our God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9), and God is always faithful to bless everyone who keeps His commandments (Psalm 128:1). Thank God for all His blessings in our lives (Psalm 50:14). Amen. Give glory to the Most High God in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
