Welcome back to the Good Morning Guys Study through 1 Samuel! I pray your past week of study was beneficial to your growth in your relationship with Christ. This is our last week of our study through 1 Samuel! It has been a blessing to study God’s word alongside of you all.
Our next study will begin on Monday, March 13th in the Gospel of Luke.
We have a Luke Journal available if you’d like to have a guide to assist you in your study.
It’s available now exclusively on Amazon.
I’ll post more details about this study soon.
Now back to 1 Samuel. If you’re new, feel free to jump right in and follow along. Everything you need for this week is below, including this week’s Bible Reading Plan, Reflection Questions, and Verses of the Day. Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for my weekly blog post.

The Reflection Questions for the Week
David trusted that God would reward his righteousness and faithfulness.
Do you trust that God will honor your faithfulness and how have you seen this in your life?
David was discouraged and said in his heart, he was about to die – even though God had promised deliverance.
What we say in our hearts has incredible power to influence our choices. In what ways has your heart discouraged you in the past?
God was silent when Saul called on him because he had not been following God’s revealed will for him.
Have you gone through a time of silence from God when you were living disobediently?
Chapter 29 -Thursday
David was in a bad place. He had no home and was trying to live in both worlds.
Have you ever been in a place where you had too much of the world in you to be at peace with God and too much of God in you, to be at peace with the world? What helped you to stop straddling the fence?
God, rich in mercy and grace, heard David’s cries for help and strengthened him.
God hears the cries of His people. Do you need more strength for today? Call out to God now. Write your prayer below.
The account of Saul dying is sad, but sadder yet is the fact that Saul knew the previous day he would die and yet he did not repent or cry out to God.
Many tend to think that they will live as they want now and get right with God later in life. Later never comes. Is there something you need to make right with God? Don’t wait – do it now.
