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.
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.
Here’s This Week’s Bible Reading Plan
Monday: 1 Samuel 11
Tuesday: 1 Samuel 12
Wednesday: 1 Samuel 13
Thursday: 1 Samuel 14
Friday: 1 Samuel 15
The Reflection Questions for the Week
Though Israel was scared, they feared disobeying God more than they feared their enemies.
Who do you tend to fear more, God or man? Why?
Samuel reminded Israel to serve God faithfully because God had done great things for them.
What great things has God done for you and how does that motivate you to serve God more?
Saul had a heart that reflected Israel’s heart rather than God’s. A man after God’s own heart, honors God above all.
God is still looking for men and women who honor him first. How is your heart today?
Chapter 14 -Thursday
Jonathan knew the odds were against him but he believed with the help of God, he could have victory.
The only thing that hinders God is unbelief. Have you made God too small in your life? In what area do you need to trust God more?
Saul’s sacrifices meant little because he had a disobedient heart.
Have you ever been tempted to give money or serve God rather than obey Him? How is this type of relationship with God empty?
