Tag Archive: 1 Samuel 25


Read: 1 Samuel 25:9-44, chapters 26 & 27, 1 Chronicles 12:1-7, 1 Samuel 28:1-2, 29:1-11,
1 Chronicles 12:19-22 and 1 Samuel chapter 30

The Daily Bible continues through 1 Samuel, introducing an amazing woman, Abigail, and also continuing Saul’s relentless pursuit of David.

Abigail is married to a very wealthy, crude and foolish man named Nabal.  Abigail is the epitome of a good wife; she protects Nabal and his household by doing all she can to stop David from seeking revenge upon this man who so arrogantly paid back evil for good.  But not only does Abigail protect her undeserving husband, she also stops David from taking vengeance into his own hands.

Through today’s reading, it is clear that God’s favor is upon David not only through the actions of Abigail but also because He steers David away from danger and delivers Saul into his hand once again.  You’d think Saul would catch on, but clearly Saul is far from God and also far from the promises he continually offers to David of repentance and sorrow for his actions.

Read:  1 Samuel 22:6-23, Psalm 52, 1 Samuel 23:1-14, Psalm 63, 1 Samuel 23:15-25, Psalm 54,
1 Samuel 23:26-29, 1 Samuel 24, Psalm 57, 1 Samuel 25:1-8

The Daily Bible doesn’t give commentary on today’s reading.  But these past few days, reading about David and Saul — the animosity and jealousy Saul has for David, while David’s respect for Saul as king is astounding.  This, right here, entering the 1st and 2nd Samuel books is why I so enjoy reading through the chronological Bible.  It is such a unique and wonderful way to read about the rantings of Saul and the struggles of David, as David offers pleas and gratitude over these experiences to God through the Psalms.

Oh, to have David’s heart…to inquire of God over every decision, to be in anguish over what may be chasing or awaiting him and yet turn it all over and to trust God fully, then as God provides protection and leading, offering thanks and gratitude.

It is no wonder that David is “a man after God’s own heart.”

“I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.”
Acts 13:22b
