by Audrey Rogers on May 8th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 30—Verse 6aAnd David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul…Recap: these men who gathered to David were “in distress, in debt, and bitter in soul” (22:2). And during the time they all lived in Ziklag, they’d raid the neighbors, murdering and plundering (27:8-9). So, now that they get a taste of their ow...
1 Samuel 27-29

Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 29--Verse 6The [Philistine] lords do not approve of you. There may be times in life where people don’t approve of you. And, in the moment, you may not like it one bit. David sure didn’t. In verse 8 he objects, “But what have I done?” What David didn’t realize, though, was that God was sparing him from having any connection to the death of Saul. God was keeping his re...
1 Samuel 24-26

Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 24-- Verse 5And afterward David’s heart struck him, because he had cut off a corner of Saul’s robe. David handled being wrongly accused and threatened with such humility. He refused to bring harm to Saul, even though he had every right to do so. He even felt guilty for considering to do harm to Saul, because he honored him. Even though David was deeply hurt, he chose...
1 Samuel 21-23

Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 23--Verse 2Therefore David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” And the Lord said to David, “Go and attack the Philistines and save Keilah.”Reading about David it is interesting that he inquires of the Lord before he makes any big decisions. I think this would be a very beneficial practice for us. Before we make a choice let’s take it to t...
1 Samuel 18-20

Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 18--Verses 8-9 (CSB)Saul was furious and resented this song. “They credited tens of thousands to David,” he complained, “but they only credited me with thousands. What more can he have but the kingdom?” So Saul watched David jealously from that day forward. We all have to be so careful with jealousy. If we do not weed it out of our hearts, it can quickly take root an...

by Audrey Rogers on May 3rd, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 17--Verse 43And the Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.”Everyone has heard of the story of David and Goliath - a young shepherd boy armed with only a sling and stones going up against an armored giant having spear and sword. The giant looked with disdain at the “hero” sent to represent ...
1 Samuel 12-14
by Audrey Rogers on May 1st, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 12—Verse 21And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty.We were created with an empty spot in our heart. We feel it, all our lives long: a longing, an ache, a desire for completion. We think, if we can just fill that spot, we will have arrived. Sometimes the longing is more intense, sometimes subtler. But it’s always ther...
1 Samuel 9-11
by Audrey Rogers on April 30th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 9--Verse 2He had a son whose name was Saul, a handsome young man. There was not a man among the people of Israel more handsome than he. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people. Be careful of trusting a first impression. Sometimes we have a mental image of who would be right for what. And sometimes initially they check all the boxes. They look i...
1 Samuel 6-8
by Audrey Rogers on April 29th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 8--Verses 19-20But the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel. And they said, “No! But there shall be a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.”Israel had seen God defend and fight their battles for them, still they wanted a physical king like the other nations. Even with t...
1 Samuel 3-5
by Audrey Rogers on April 28th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 3--Verse 10 NLTAnd the LORD came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!”And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”The Lord called 4 times before Samuel answered and I think the Lord does that to us when we don’t recognize it’s Him, He keeps on calling. Has the Lord put anything heavy on your heart? Has He been calling your name and have you been simply ...
1 Samuel 1-2
by Audrey Rogers on April 27th, 2021
Daily Devotional from 1 Samuel 1--Verses 16-17 (NIV)“...Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.” Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”There is something about grief that all of us connect with even though it affects us all differently. Hannah was expressing her grief in deep sorr...
