LIFe with God: June 22-23, 2013

Posted on June 22, 2013

Scripture

1 Samuel 24

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How did God turn the tables on Saul? How did David show his heart was for God and not for the throne? How did Saul respond to this? What affirmation did he give David?

Application

Am I more concerned with loving and serving God than I am with having Him give me what I want? Do I repent and change my behavior when confronted with my sin?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Heavenly Father, David could have easily killed Saul, but instead used the situation to make peace rather than to further his own agenda. May I do likewise. Saul, at least this time, repented of his sin toward David and changed his behavior. When I am confronted with my sin, may I do likewise. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
