Spiritual Journey through 1 Samuel 1 through 4

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in 1 Samuel 1-5 and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.

Written about in “Accomplish the Victory” is the need to keep praying on a regular basis about your aspirations in life so that they are in alignment with God’s will. Once they are aligned with God’s will, things will begin to start working so your plans can be carried out and reality will affirm continual pursuit of your dreams.

Within the post “Destiny of the Faithful”, those who are the faithful ones in Christ are assured of a destiny beyond what could be imagined but the adversaries are headed towards ruin so let us meditate on the Truth and seek ways to share with others the reward for those who are faithful to the Lord. 

An observation made in “Regard for the Lord” is that if things are wrong in our life, we are to seek solutions to getting back on track by following the Lord’s Way. Rather than trying to rationalize away His standards, trust and follow His Way.

Shared in “Grow to Know” was how Samuel listened to the Lord. In the same way, we can listen to the Lord by reading and reflecting on the Word. We can grow to know the instructions and be ready to apply them in our life.

A take-away from reading God’s Word as described in “Useful Faith” is that faith is not the only quality we need. The Israelites demonstrated that they had no advantage in religious ceremonial observances. What they needed was to internalize the qualities taught in God’s Word so that their heart and mind would be aligned for action.

Keep up with my spiritual journey over the next few weeks either through following this blog or the Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God – A Spiritual Journey. Let’s share thoughts or ideas about applying our faith so we step ahead along the path to victory.
