Notes from todays reading.

1 Samuel 27:

I really want to continue reading, this story is unfolding slowly and Im getting really excited to see what God is going to reveal in the text. David starts this whole process on the wrong foot. This chapter begins by saying David began thinking to himself (depending on your translation). In all these stories so far men that succeed seek God, and obey God. David was getting caught up in his fears, and worries and began “leaning on his own understanding”. When we do this we are running a very good chance of stepping of God’s pre-destined path for our lives.

The fruit of this decision begins showing itself by David’s lying to the King. Although this King is an enemy of his people, God never wants us to change our moral integrity. Although David loves God, and serves God in everything He does. He went wrong here. We have to remember for every wrong and unethical decision we make, there will be a consequence. It may soon, it may be some time later. But God never lets any act of wrong go unpunished. There is forgiveness, but there is consequences. Our parents would punish for things we did wrong, doesnt mean they didnt love us. Punishment is to deter that act of repeating again.

Psalm 141:

This Psalm seems to have a root of repentance. Verse 5 seems to be a very humility driven request. Im not sure whether David is acknowledging he did wrong, or if he is asking for help to keep from doing wrong and going astray.

1 Chronicles 9:

Another ruff chapter with lots of names that are hard to read. But Verse 1b is very cool. Earlier we talked about there being consequences for wrong decisions. The people of Judah were exiled as a consequence to their sin. There is a lot of depth, story and prophecy behind this whole exile. But to keep it simple for us, because of their unfaithfulness, they were punished. We all make choices everyday regarding our walk with the Lord. God held his own people to a higher standard, but just know that God desires and expects faithfulness from all people. And for those that choose not to be faithful to God there will be consequences to face. Whether in this life, the next or both.

Matthew 10:

Because these Chapters have so much depth please bring up anything I did not. Im going to focus on Verses 29-31. I felt that these verses had a direct correlation with our devotion of God is Faithful also posted today. Who would have ever thought that God is so big, so loving and so faithful. God knows when a single sparrow falls to the ground. That is just beyond crazy. Think about how many animals die daily. God knows it, each one. We obviously are more important than animals, in Genesis God gave Adam control over all the animals. He put Adam far above the animals of this earth.

When things are tough how come we feel like God is not there? Or, God doesnt care or love us? This verse makes it very clear how much God loves and cares for us. All of us. So when you feel like nothings going right; or, God dont care and all of that. Just know those are all lies from the devil himself. God says you are more valuable than a whole flock of sparrows, and not one can die without him knowing. Case Closed. He know how much hair you have on your head! And he’s not talking only about the bald guys!! Praise God!

God Bless.

  4. Jesus really laided out everything in Matthew to his disciples. Verses 37-41 really made me think of where Jesus stood in my Life! I really kind of worship my kids I sometimes put them before Jesus and my wife. I love how straight forward Jesus was and is still to this day. I got some
