We are nearing the end of our journey through the book of 1 Samuel with three more chapters to go. We will continue to be focused on the purpose of this blog as we continue to use it in helping us to apply His Word in our life. I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are keeping me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.
We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far
Anyone can join in as we journey together.
The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Leviticus over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!
Questions for Reflection
1 Samuel 29 – What is David’s predicament? In spite of David’s dishonesty, how does God honor his former concern to spare Saul? How has God delivered you from situations you have gotten yourself into because of sin or unbelief?
1 Samuel 30 – How does God use the Amalekites’ raid in David’s life? How does difficult situations strengthen you in the Lord? Are you learning to pray before you make decisions?
1 Samuel 31 – What is the outcome of the battle between Israel and the Philistines? What happens to Saul and his sons? To whom do the Philistines proclaim their victory? What are your thoughts in how to be obedient to the ONE true God?
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
