The Lord Is My Rock and it is He Who Deserves My Praise
God is using this Bible study. It is helping me to see things in Scripture I've never seen before, even though I've read these books of the Bible many times. The Holy Spirit is teaching me through this study to find nuggets of truth. Thank you Shawn for writing this guide. I'm digging deeper into the Word of God and seeing motives of the heart in these people who lived so long ago.
These two verses show the way these two men responded after the Lord helped them defeat the enemy. Samuel honored the Lord and gave Him the glory. Saul shows his conceit and arrogance in honoring himself.
"Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.” 1 Samuel 7:12
“Saul has gone to Carmel. There he has set up a monument in his own honor." 1 Samuel 15:12
I want to remember that it is the Lord helping me with my teaching and my little apple and beef business and give Him the praise for it.
