1 Samuel charts the rise and fall of several of Israel’s leaders. You’ll meet the notoriously arrogant king Saul and see the ascent of the man after God’s own heart David. You’ll read of dangerous battles, murder plots, giants and even more surprises in this book.
Pick up these undated devotions, written by Andy Mason, and use them as a guide to 1 Samuel. Each devotion ends with reflection questions that will help you meditate on what you’ve read and apply it to your life. You’ll see that despite turbulence in leadership, seemingly strong enemies and spiritual decay God is very much at work orchestrating the fall of the proud and the rise of the humble. What an encouragement for us today when we are faced with challenges not too dissimilar to these!
