 (1 Samuel) Patching Things Up by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 19:1-10  
Description: Saul openly commands all his servants, including his own son Jonathan to kill David. Jonathan of course goes to David to warn him of his fathers intentions to have David killed, in this Jonathan submitted to the authority of the Lord more than the authority of his own father and king. The word of God instructs us to obey those in authority but when a command coms that is directly against the will of the Lord we must not obey as this would be sin. Jonathan defended David before Saul, just as the Lord Jesus defends us when Satan attacks and accuses us, sometimes correctly, but the Lord will not allow Satan to prevail over us so long as we are in His will. Jonathan gives a good account of David to Saul and Saul repents of the wrong that he wanted to do to David, Saul voowes that David shall not be kiled, which ironically was true as he wouldn't be killed by Saul. Then war returned to Israel and the evil spirit came upon Saul again and again he tried to kill David, this time David fled and did not return to the palace.

 (1 Samuel) Strengthening Your Hand In God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 23:14-29, Psalm 54  
Description: Saul was obsessed with capturing David and sought him daily but the Lord delievered David out of the hand of Saul every time. David was oppressed in the heart of his trial so the Lord sent Jonathan to him to strenthen him. Jonathan remind David of the Lord's promises to him how David will be king of Israel and that even Saul knows this, but Jonathan goes to far in what he is saying to David and says that he will be next to David when he is king, this sadly wouldn't come to pass as Jonathan would be killed in battle beofre David even came to the throne. When Jonathan leaves David the Ziphites go and betray David into the hand of Saul, it was then that David wrote Psalm 54 and as seen in the psalm David puts his whole trust in the Lord and his heart is filled with praise to God. Sauls army is just about to encircle David when a messanger comes to Saul and informs him that the philistines are invading and the Israel is under attack so Saul has to leave off from David and defend Israel.

 (1 Samuel) The Battle after the Battle by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 18:1-9  
Description: David comes before Saul after killing Goliath and tells the king all about the batle with Goliath and the Philistines and testifies to the glory of God how the the Lord delivered Israel's enemies into their hands. It was here that the soul of Jonathan the heir to the throne was knit to the soul of David, youngest son of a sheep farmer, why? becuase of their love of the Lord. Jonathan takes off all his princely apparel and gives it to David as he knows that David, not himself, is going to be the next king of Israel. This is a picture of our relationship with the Lord Jesus who, laid aside His glory and dwelt amongst us so that He could array in His robe of righteousness. This was the high point of David and Sauls relationship, Saul sent David out to fight the Philistines, and David won a resounding victory, becaue the Lord was with him, but the people began to love David more than Saul and this caused Saul to become Jealous and he became suspicious of David from that day on, David on the other hand did not get proud but acted wisely before the Lord.

 (1 Samuel) The Holiness of God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 6:13-21  
Description: The Ark of the Lord returns to Israel and the people rejoice to see it in much the same way the dicsciple must have rejoiced to see the risen Lord Jesus, they offered a sacrifice unto the Lord using the wood from the cart and the cows that had pulled the cart back, these were expensive commodities in those days. However it wasn't long before the men of Bethshemesh became curious to know what was actually in the Ark, so they opened it and the Lord kiled them for it. This shows that there are some things that God has chosen not to reveal to us and it is sin to press God to try an find out things that He does not want to reveal to us. This judgement lead to a great fear spreading over the people as they realized the holiness of God, that God is not man and is far beyond us and thus is seperate from us. This is what attracts people to God because He is beyond us, but when people come to know Him and see his holiness and 'otherness' we become fearful as we are not holy before a holy God. But praise God there is someone who can stand between us and God, the Lord Jesus.

 (1 Samuel) The Raiding of the Ark by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 4:1-11  
Description: Here the Israelites are at war with their neighbours the Philistines, who had superior military technology for that time due to their widespread trade routes. After suffering a crushing defeat of 4000 men the leaders of Israel tried to persuade god to fight for them by bringing the Ark of the Covenant, this was a great mistake as they put their faith in the Ark of God and not in the God of the Ark. This displayed the vain superstitions the people of Israel were embracing at the time. The priests that brough the Ark tio the camp were the two sons of Eli who the Lord had already declared were under judgement. When the Ark arrived their was a great shout in the camp and the Philistines became afraid as they knew that the Ark represented the God of Israel and that He was mightier than their gods, but despite this they did not submit to Him but fought the more viciously against the Israelites. Becasue God was not with Israelites they not only lost awefully but the Ark was taken and the sons of Eli were killed in the smae day, just as the Lord had said would happen.

 (1 Samuel) The Training of a Prophet by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 3:11-3:21  
Description: The first message that God gave to Samuel was a message of judgeement for the the house of Eli, Eli had not heeded the Lord's warning and so judgement was pronounced becasue Eli had not restrained his sons. Samuel of course was afraid to deliver this message to the spiritual leader of Israel, but Eli desired to hear what the Lord had to say to him. Therefore Samuel at Eli's request told him everything and when Eli heard the message he knew it was from the Lord and submitted to the word. From that time on Samuel's' fame began to spread as prophet and messenger of God and God revealed Himself to Samuel by His Word. But Samuel did not get proud or arrogant of the fact that God would use him but insteawd was humble before the Lord and thius the Lord could use him mightily.

 (1 Samuel) Various Passages - Three Lives, Three Choices by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 3:18, 1 Samuel 13:11-12, 1 Samuel 16:12  
Description: Samuel, Saul and David, three of the most memorable people to appear in the scriptures made choices early on in their lives that would influence their entire lives from then on. As a child Samuel served in the house of the Lord at Shiloh under Eli the High priest, Eli had chosen not to rebuke his sons for their wickedness and for this the Lord held him responsible, one night the Lord told Samuel, still a child, to tell Eli that he would take the priesthood from Eli. Eli asked Samuel what the Lord had said and Samuel told him everything. He chose to obey the Lord over popularity. Saul was anointed king over Israel but in a moment of panic offered a sacrifice to the Lord which was forbidden to do, when Samuel, now the prophet of God, challenged him Saul chose to make excuses for his actions instead of repenting. David was a man after God's own heart and chose to love the Lord when he was alone with the sheep in the fields where there were none to see him, David still a boy became and man of God and most likely in this time wrote Psalm 23.

 (1 Samuel) What God Regrets by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 15:1-16  
Description: Samuel comes to Saul and gives him a message from the Lord, the command was simple, 'Go and wipe out all the Amalekites, every single one of the including all their livestock' this was due to what they had done in the past in that as the children of Israel were on their way into the promised land from egypt, Amalek had come up behind them and started to attack the very weakest of them. This was over 400 years ago but shows us that time does not erase sin beofre the Lord and He had given the Amalekites all this time to repent but they didn't so the Lord pronounced judgement on them. So Saul went and attacked the Amalekites and killed some of them but kept Agag, their king alive, and also some of their best livestock. This grieved the Lord and Samuel and when Saul told Samuel what he had done Samuel rebuked him fopr his pride as it had led to self deception. Saul tried to blame everyone else and that he was being actually being spiritual but Samuel gave him a word from the Lord...

 (1 Samuel) What Happens by Chance by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 6:1-12  
Description: After an amazing 7 months of affliction because of the Ark of God, the Philistines finally decide to send the Ark back to the people of Israel with an offering to show their humility towards the Lord. They had learned lesson from their Biblical history in that would no longer harden their hearts towards the Lord as the Egyptians had done inb the time of Moses. But before sending the Ark back they decided to perform on last test to see if what had happened was at the hand of the Lord or all the events had just happened by chance. They placed the Ark on a cart pulled by 2 milk cows, which had never pulled anything before in their lives, they took the cows from their calves, set them on a road they had never been on and sent them away with no driver. The philistines had 'stacked the deck' against God to see if it was actually Him who had punished them for these 7 months. So they stood back and watched in amazement as the cows took the exact route to Bethshemesh guided by the invisible hand of Almighty God, God will get His glory even if He has to glorify Himself.

 (1 Samuel) What Submission Is and Is Not by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 25:23-44  
Description: David is on his way to Nabals house to massacre everone there when, suddenyl a woman leading a large company meets him on his way, she gets off her mount and bows herself down to the ground before him, this is quite a surprise for David as Abigail was a woman of great status and so to see her humbling herself in this way is very odd. She asks David for mercy and to lay the blame on herself, she reminds David that he is the one who goes out and fights the Lord's battles, this must have pricked Davids heart as he surely knew that what he was intending to do was not in the heart of the Lord, David by the grace of God realises what he is doing and departs praising the Lord for sending Abigail. Nabal on the other hand is totally unaware of what could have happened and is throwing a party when Abigail returns, the morning after she tells him of the previous days events and he is so shocked that he dies 10 days later. David sends fo Abigail and takes her and Ahinoam for his wives as Sauls daughter had been given to someone else.

 (1 Samuel) When God Announces Judgment by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 2:22-3:10  
Description: The sons of Eli were a corrupt priesthood who took from the people what they wanted and didn't give them what they should, their father, and boss, Eli didn't discipline them for this but instead lectured them as to how what he had heard about them had saddened him. Because they went unpunished by their father the Lord had to judge them for their actions. On day a man sent from God came to the house of Eli and confronted him about his sons behaviour because God held him responsible for what his sons were doing, the man of God gave Eli, and his sons and invitation to repent before judgement came but they didn't thus judgement had to come in the deaths of Eli's sons adn the removal of Eli's family from the preisthood in the days of Zadok about 70 years later. During this time Samuel was growing in favour of God and man and thus the Lord spoke to him even though Samuel didn't know it was the Lord, he went to Eli and Eli told him it was the Lord and Samuel recieved the word with gladness.

 (1 Samuel) When God Rejects a Leader by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 13:1-14  
Description: Here we are introduced to one of the great men in this book of 1 Samuel, Jonathan who was a remarkable military leader and also son of Saul the king. Jonathan leads an army against the local philistine garrison and wins a resounding victory, even though Saul his father took the credit for it, but the philistines didn't like this at all and decided to amass an army to put down this 'rebellion' in the people of Israel who they oppessed. the people of Israel were fearful before going into battle and realised they need the Lord to fight for them, so Saul calls for Samuel to offer a sacrifice and bless them before the battle. After a few days of Samuel not coming to offer the sacrifice Saul decides to off the sacrifice himself, which was a major sin as he was a king not a priest, and just after the sacrifice is offered Samuel comes over the hill to find to his horror Saul has not waited for him, and thus not waited for the Lord's timing. Samuel offers Saul an opportunity to repent but instead he makes excuses, so Samuel tells him that the Lord has rejected him as king and has found a man after His own heart to rule the people.

 (1 Samuel) When God Won’t Talk to You by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 28  
Description: The Philistines again attack Israel in a very aggresive way, reaching right into the heart of the land. So Saul not knowing what to do goes to enquire of the Lord, but the Lord wouldn't answer him either by dreams, Urim or prophets, this is because Saul had been in open rebellion to the Lord for years now andhad departed from Him. So Saul panics and seeks a medium who would give him advice. So the servants of Saul tell him of a woman in Endor, so Saul disguises himself and goes to her and asks her to bring up Samuel the prophet from the dead, and when Samuel comes the medium is terrified and realises who Saul is. Samuel asks Saul why he has brought him up and Saul says that the Lord has departed from him, when really Saul had departed from the Lord, and he doesn't know what to do, but Samuel reminds Saul that the Lord had promised to tear the kingdom out of his hands and that is just what is going to happen because the time that had elapsed had not atoned for Saul's sin. So Samuel tells Saul that the day after he would die and gave Saul one last chance to repent, but he didn't.

 (1 Samuel) When We Know Better Than God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 8  
Description: Samuel raised his sons up to be his succesors and to judge Israel after his death, but they did not walk in the way of the Lord as he did. So the Israelites came to him and told him that they rejected his sons from ruling over them because of their ungodly lives, however instead of his sons they wanted a king to rule over them instead, the reason for this lay in their desire to be just like the surrounding nations, it is very dangerous for the people of God to want to be like the those in the world around them. Samuel was saddened by this decision from the people and poured out his complaint before the Lord, as we should do. But the Lord reassured Samuel and told him that that it wasn't him they were rejecting but the Lord Himself. This was prophetic of the rejection of the Lord Jesus by the the people of Israel before Pilate. So the Lord told Samuel to tell the people of Israel what kind of king they would have, and he did, but the people still demanded a king and so the Lord gave them the king they deserved.

 (1 Samuel) Where the Battle Is Won by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 17:1-30  
Description: This is the account of Davids fight with Goliath. Goliath was mountain of a man some say he was aroung 9ft tall, and this is reflected in the size and weight of his armour, he was a man of war from his youth and was in the philistine army army for one reason, to instill fear into their enemies. On the first day of battle Goliath headed out and stood before the army of Israel and challenged them to send out one man to fight with him, one on one, and this terrified the Israelites and their king Saul, who was the tallest in their army. Satan today uses the exact same tactics as Goliath did in that he roars at us and makes us afraid when God is on our side and there is no reason to fear what he or man might do to us. David arrives at the battle to bring supplies to his brothers who were in the army at the time and hears Goliath's challenge, but David instead of seeing Goliaths size and armour saw an uncircumsized idolater who was defying the living God, David knew this was a cause worth fighting for so he accepted Goliaths challenge.
