“the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action.”
As we reach the end of 1 Samuel, David strengthens himself in the Lord his God. The Lord restores everything that had been lost when Amalekite raiders plundered and burned Ziklag. The book ends in tragedy as Saul and his sons die in battle against the Philistines.
King Saul makes a foolish vow that threatens the life of his son, but the people intercede for Jonathan. When King Saul goes on to disobey specific instructions from God, the Lord rejects him from being king over Israel.
Opposing the Proud, Exalting the Humble
The book of Samuel opens in a time of chaos and barrenness. A woman named Hannah prays for a son, Eli’s wicked sons scorn the sacrifices of the Lord, Samuel learns to recognize the voice of the Lord, and God remains faithful through it all.
