Reward of Faithfulness!
Scripture reading for April 12th: 1st Samuel 24-26, John 6
Key Scriptures: 1 Samuel 26:23-25 “The Lord rewards every man for his righteousness and his faithfulness, for the Lord gave you into my hand today, and I would not put out my hand against the Lord’s anointed. Behold, as your life was precious this day in my sight, so may my life be precious in the sight of the Lord, and may He deliver me out of all tribulation. Then Saul said to David, “Blessed be you, my son David! You will do many things and succeed in them.””
David was being hunted by Saul, because Saul was jealous of David and had an evil spirit. David spared Saul’s life because he refused to touch the Lord’s anointed. He knew that only God could take vengeance of an anointed servant. Saul blessed David and prophesied his success. Jesus, a son of David and The Son of God, spared us!
John 6:56-57 “Whoever feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on Me, he also will live because of Me.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your faithful obedience and honoring of mankind by offering Your own body and blood to give us life. Help me to honor and obey You today. Amen.
