Dangers Of An Evil Report

TLC Bible reading today is 1 Samuel 17. Our God is bigger than any problem we face. Sometimes the battle is intimidating. Goliath was 9' tall, his armor weighed around 125 lbs and the tip of his spear weighed 15 lbs. He was big. He was a champion. He was threatening ... but God is bigger. David knew God was bigger. David had no doubt that God was with him, there was a righteous cause, and David knew he and God would win this battle too!
There are rewards for winning. Others are inspired when we win. The world can see the goodness of God when we win. Let's win! Be encouraged. Face your giants. Win your battles. The problems may be big and intimidating but God is bigger! We can win! ... See more
TLC Bible reading today is 1 Samuel 16. God does not look on the outward appearance, He looks at our heart. When choosing a new king God rejected some of Jesse's sons and chose the one others would not have chosen. On the outside David was the youngest, the smallest and the least qualified but he had the right heart. David was loyal, full of faith, kind, compassionate, generous, passionate, a worshipper, a deep thinker, courageous and wise. Even when pushed to extremes David stayed loyal, faithful, kind and true. He had a great heart!
We must develop a great heart too. We must guard our heart. Satan tries to corrupt our heart, harden it and wound it. If our heart gets hardened, corrupted or deeply wounded and not quickly healed, we are in great danger! God looks on your heart. Make sure you keep your heart pure! If you heart has been compromised seek God for healing and restoration. Don't try to live with a compromised heart. ... See more
TLC Bible reading today is 1 Samuel 15. God gave Saul specific instructions and commandments regarding his battle with the Amalekites. Saul disobeyed and rebelled. Saul listened to the people instead of listening to God. He feared the people more than he feared God. Saul had the audacity to declare he had done the will of God. He may have done part of God's will but partial obedience is not enough. Saul failed the test. Had he done what God commanded he would have been established as king but now he will be removed and another will take his place.
Some big lessons for us here are:
1. Obedience is better than sacrifice
2. Rebellion is equal to the sin of witchcraft
3. Stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry
4. When we reject the Word of the Lord we disqualify ourself from His blessings and favor.
Stay humble and stay obedient to God. Arrogance and disobedience will ruin your life. ... See more
