I am tempted to rename this whole post series The Bible in 90 Weeks! This session has taken me over 100 days already. I don’t know if I’ll finish before the year ends, but I’m going to try. It is definitely worth it! Here’s my SOAP for day 23!
2 Samuel 12:11 – 2 Samuel 22:18
Scripture: “During the reign of David, there was a famine for three successive years, so David sought the face of the Lord ….” ~ 2 Samuel 21:1
Observation: I can’t imagine how difficult it would be like to face a famine for a couple of days, so living in one for 3 years would surely tests someone’s faith in God. David was king at the time of the famine. There was nothing he could do but seek God. God told David why the famine was happening.
Application: I haven’t face a famine, but I do know what it is like to have difficult times. We have to remember to seek God, especially when life gets hard.
Prayer: God, I pray that the first thing we all do when we face trouble is to seek you. When we do, please hear us and answer us.
