Blessings everyone,

I pray that you ‘re moving through your day with a released heart. We will be stagnant from growth, if we are held hostage by the things that have hurt us or confused us. It becomes almost a self torture Ps 106:45 for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of great love he relented. God is ready to change his mind when it comes to our sin, so be ready to release and relent your feelings toward those that may have gotten on your bad side.(Thank you minister Barrett)

Matthew Chapter 2

Verse 1-6

Visitors Arrive from Eastern Lands

The word says after Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the wise men came from the east to Jerusalem and asked

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”

The word says king Herod was disturbed, and so was Jerusalem along with him. King Herod had called together all the priests and teachers. Herod asked them where was Jesus supposed to be born and the told him in Bethlehem then the told him what the prophet had written.

“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel”

Here we learn that Jesus has been born in Bethlehem and in that someone has already seen him as a threat before he even could speak. I want you to think about your purpose that thing you want to do so bad and I want you to realize that there are people that will try to stop you before you step out of the gate.

Herod saw Jesus as  threat ! let’s continue

Verse 7-12

Herod called the wise men to meet with him and find out exactly what time the star appeared, them he told them to go seek the child and report back to him so that he can worship him as well. The word says the went on their journey and followed the star until it stopped where Jesus was. They were overjoyed, when they came to the house they saw Jesus with his mother Mary and they worshipped him. They then opened their treasures and presented Jesus with Gold, incense, and myrrh. They were warned in a dream not to go back to king Herod they ended up going back to their country another route.

After I read this I wanted to know the meanings of the gifts so here you go

Gold =Divinity

Incense/frankincense = used for worship

Myrrh= used for embalming/ also mixed with wine to make a drink, the same drink that the Savior was given before he was crucified. It is said to be a stupefying potion

My spirit tells me these gifts would be what Jesus would be from the beginning to his crucifixion.

Verse 13 – 18

The escape to Egypt

The word says that when the wise men had left an angel had come to Joseph and told him to get up and escape Egypt with his wife and Jesus. The angel told him to stay there, until he comes back, the angel told Joseph that Herod will search for Jesus to kill him.

The word says that Joseph got up and took Jesus and Mary in the middle of the night and left for Egypt. And so, the word of the Lord through his prophet was confirmed

“Out of Egypt I called my son”

The word says that when Herod realized that he was tricked by the wise men he ordered for all boys under the age of 2yrs old to be killed. He went by the time frame, that the wise men told him that the star appeared. The word says that then the prophet Jeremiah’s prophesy was fulfilled

“A voice is heard in Ramah,

Weeping and great mourning,

Rachel weeping for her children

And refusing to be comforted,

Because they are no more.”

If you follow this blog you know that my faith tells me that God confirms the word of his servant. If you are moving in what God has placed you to do, and you are praising him and letting move in your life. Then you are a servant of God. Just as Prophet Jeremiah’s word was fulfilled so will yours.

Verse 19 – 23

The word tells us that after Herod died an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph and told him to take Jesus and Mary to Israel. The angel told Joseph that the ones who were trying to take the life of Jesus was dead. When Joseph was on his way to Israel he heard that the son of Herod had now took his father’s place and this scared Joseph so he went to Nazareth and then the word of the prophet was fulfilled.

“He will be called a Nazarene”

Reading this chapter with renewed eyes is very different for me. When I first read this chapter years ago I just looked at it as a story but with renewed eyes I see. The Gods word will always come to pass. The word of the prophet is things that God as told the prophets that the relay to the people.

It also shows me that God shifts things so that his word will come to pass when you wal in righteousness as Joseph did, you gain the gift of discernment and this is exactly what Joseph used to get to Nazareth.

Walking by faith is how we walk in righteousness walking in purpose is how we walk with God how we worship him with our work (thank you Alethia Hudson) be blessed everyone s if you go to the Journey in praise Facebook page you will be able to see the video that was made when I received revelation on this word.

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew Chapter 1

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well, walking in faith and building your relationship with God. This is a new serious for our bible study, as I was finishing up I Samuel the Lord challenged me to meet Jesus. Not as before but as a new, what I mean by that is with the knowledge that he has given me over the year. So I am excited to walk through the book of Matthew with a renewed spirit.

Matthew Chapter 1

Verses 1- 17 tells us how Jesus comes from the bloodline of Abraham and David.

Verse 18 – 24

The word tells us that Marry was set to marry Joesph. Before they came together as husband and wife, she had became pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Joseph a righteous man had decided to divorce Mary quietly.

An angel had come to him in his dreams and told him who Mary was preparing to birth and whay he would do. People Will call the child Immanuel God with us.

The word says when Joseph woke up he did what the angel said, he and Mary wouldn’t become on flesh until after she gave birth.

This is a short chapter but it speaks volumes on faith. It was Joseph’s faith that allowed him to be obedient had he not been obedient, Mary’s life would have went left and the rearing of Jesus would have been very different.

When we have faith in the word of God, their will be difficulty and shifts in your plans. Having faith in the end result is when we rest on God

I Samuel Chapter 31

Saul takes his life

Verse 1-13

The word says; the Philistines fought against Israel and the Israelites ran from them, many Israelites were killed in Mount Gilboa. In this fight Saul’s three sons were killed Jonathan, Abindab, and Malki-Shua and when the archers saw Saul they wounded him. Saul didn’t want to die in the hands of his enemy, he told his armor bearer to drive the sword in him. The armor bear was afraid and didn’t want to do it, so Saul took his own life by falling on his sword. When they armor bearer saw that Saul was dead he did the same to himself. When the Israelites that were on the Jordan river saw that the Israel army had fled and Saul and his sons were dead the left their towns and ran.

The next day the Philistines found the bodies of Saul and his sons and they cut off Saul’s head and sent a message to the Philistines. The Philistines took the body and armor of Saul to the temple of the Ashtoreth and fastened his body on the wall of Beth Shan.

The word says when the people of Jabesh Gilead heard what happen they went and retrieved the body of Saul and his sons and buried them at a tree in Jabesh.

When Saul took matters in to his own hand it didn’t work out for him. Saul only wanted the Lords opinion when necessary. Saul didn’t walk a righteous life, he used the Lords like an ATM. We must be careful with this action we must be able to place the Lord in every aspect of our lives, we cannot pick and choose what the Lord can be sovereign over and what he can’t

I Samuel Chapter 30

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

 

Blessing everyone,

 

I pray that you are working within the Lord’s presences, when we are building a Foundation of Faith, one of the most important things to know is; we can’t do it alone. We are not meant to do it alone. Gen 2:18 tells us that it is not good for a man to be alone. (you may say come on Wilhelmina that is referring to a man and a woman) Lev 25:35 If one of your countrymen becomes poor and unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. This shows us that it is not good for man to be alone or anyone for that matter. When we begin to have children, we were given more helpers. We are born as a helper in our tribe. When two or more are gathered God is in our mist. (you and your helpers) Last one, and when there is no help; Psalm 72:12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. We can’t do it on our own, it is not only our responsibility to each other it is one of our commandments, and for those who can’t get any help the Lord steps in and shifts things and then places divine help.

I Samuel Chapter 30

David destroys the Amalekites

Verse 1 -10

The word says that on the third day David and his men Ziklag and the Amelikites had raided Negev and Ziklag. They had burned it, taken the women captive old and young they didn’t kill anyone but they took them and went on their way.

The word says that the men cried out loud until they had no strength. Their wives and children were taken including David’s. The men wanted to stone David, they blamed him for this. But David found strength in the Lord. David told Abiathar to bring him the ephod, when Abiathat brought the ephod David inquired of the Lord

“shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I take them over?”

The Lord responded

“pursue them, you will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue”

The word says six hundred men went with him where two hundred were too tired to continue and the four hundred went on.

I’m going to jump the gun remember when the Lord told Saul to destroy the Amalekites (see chapter 15) are you thinking what I’m thinking. David is going to do what Saul failed to do. But I’m going to hold it this isn’t a long chapter lets continue.

Verse 10 -31

The word says that David’s men brought an Egyptian to him and they feed him and gave him water (remember Lev 25:35) the word says that the Egyptian was revived he had not eaten or drunk anything for three days and three nights.

David asked the man to whom do you belong? And the Egyptian man told David that he was a slave abandoned by his master an Amalekite when he became ill. He told David all the places that they raided which included Negev and burning down Ziklag

David asked the Egyptian slave if he could lead him to the raid party, and the slave was willing as long as David wouldn’t kill him or hand him to his master. The Egyptian slave led David to where the Amalekites were and they were spread over the country side enjoying the plunder of their raids; the word says that David fought them from dusk until the evening of the next day. David recovered everything that the Amalekites took including his two wives. He took the flock and herds, and his men drove everything ahead of him saying “This is David’s plunder”

On their way back, they came to the ravine where the two hundred men were, the evil men among David said that the men that didn’t go should get nothing, but they can take their wives and children and go. David told his men No, they must not do that with what the Lord has given you, the Lord has protected us, and handed over the forces that came up against us.

David told his men that the share of the men who stayed behind well be the same as the men who went to battle.

The word says when David got back to Ziklag he sent some of the plunder to the elders of Judah they were his friends with the message

“Here is a present for you, from the plunder of the enemy”

David sent plunder to friends in Bethel, Ramoth, Negev, and Jattir, Aroe, Siphmoth

,Eshtemoa, and Racal he also sent to Jerahmeelites. Kenites, and people in Hormah, Bor Ashan,  Athach and Hebron and all the other places that he had roamed.

When the Lord told David to go forth to recover what was taken from the Amalekites, the Amalekites that the Lord told Saul to destroy. Now here it’s been put into position for David to be on one Accord with God, and things have been shifted to make sure that it is strategically played out.

The Lord provided help for David, the Egyptian slave had gotten sick, and was left behind to die, the Lord sent him help, the Lord positioned David to be there to help the slave, the Lord had positioned the slave to David.

We all have to be ready and in position to help, and to except help. In the intro without readying the chapter the Lord gave me scripture on help. Whomever this word is for, be ready to help, be ready to except help.

 Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

I Samuel Chapter 29

Achish sends David Back to Ziklag

 Verse 1 – 7

The word says the Philistines had gathered their forces at Aphek and Israel camped by the spring in Jezreel.  As the Philistines were marching the word says there were hundreds and thousands of them. David and his men were at the rear. The commander asked Achish

“What about the Hebrews?”

Achish reminded them of who David was, and confirmed that David had been faith to him and gave him no reason to think that he would betray him. The word says Philistines commanders were angry and told Achish to send David back. The Philistines worried that when they got to battle. that David would turn on them to please Saul. They said isn’t this the David that they sing about

”’Saul has slain his thousands,

And David his ten thousands’?”

The word says that Achish said to David” as surely as the Lord lives you have been reliable” Achish begin to tell David that the Philistine commanders didn’t want him and he begin to tell David why?

 

Let me tell you, There will be some places that we are not meant to go. Let me repeat there are some places that we are not meant to go. Let’s move forward so that you know why.

Verse 9 – 11

The word says that David asked Achish  ’haven’t I been reliable?’ and Achish assured David that it was not him who didn’t want him there, but the commanders of Philistines were not happy with his presence.

The word says David then went back to the lands of the Philistines in the early morning, and the Philistines went to Jezreel.

I’m going to say this, there are places that we can go, and there are places that we can’t go. The Lord will shift you at the right time. Remember the Lord said to David don’t touch his anointed (please see other chapters 24&26). Now let’s say that David ended up going with the Philistines and he killed Saul by accident, their will go his obedience his instruction was to not touch the Lord’s anointed.

At times, we know we are not to be in a place, you know because it will trouble your spirit. Be ready to move when someone says I love you, but you can’t be here right now.

 

Now for the most Important part If you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are in good health and spirits. Today let’s go about our day, showing how grateful we are that God deemed it a good thing to wake us up this morning. Sometimes life will have us so caught up that we don’t even pay attention to the fact that some didn’t make it through the night. This is the thing that we don’t want to think about so we don’t acknowledge it. Yet it’s the first reason to think the Lord. Hallelujah we made the cut.

I Samuel chapter 28

Saul and the witch

Verse 1-8

The bible tells us at this time the Philistines gathered their forces against Israel. Now Achish told David that he and his men would be joining them. David tells him “then you will be able to see what I can do.” At this time Samuel has passed away, Israel had mourned and buried him in his town of Ramah, the bible also tells us that Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritist from the land.

The Philistines setup in Shunem and Saul gathered at Gilboa with the Israelites. The word says that when Saul saw the philistines army he was afraid; terror filled his heart. Saul went to God, but the Lord did not answer him, in any outlets (Dreams, Urim, or prophets). When Saul didn’t hear from God, he told his attendants, to find a woman who was a medium, so that he may go and ask her somethings.

Saul disguised himself and at night he and two of his men went to the woman. Saul tells her to consult a spirit for him and bring up the one he tells her to.

I’m going to stop here for a minute, Saul was now at the point where he was desperate. Samuel had passed away, Daniel was among his enemy, and God had turned his back. All that was good in Saul’s life had now left. Now he called on those that was expelled due to being against the grace of God. ( witch craft, sorcery, medium)

Now he is so desperate that he is now willing to go against God to find his answers. When we go against God because we don’t hear from him. Let me tell you, when we don’t hear from God, it doesn’t mean go somewhere else, it means wait for him keep seeking him. Lets find out what happens next.

Verse 9- 25

The bible tells us that the woman tells him that

“Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and the spiritist from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?”

Saul promises the woman that as long as she lives she would not be punished for it.

The woman asked him who he needed to be called up, and Saul tells her that he needs her to bring up Samuel. The word says when she saw Samuel she cried out at the top of her voice (This woman screamed) she asked Saul why had he deceived her, she knew that he was Saul.

Saul told her not to be afraid and asks her what does she see. The woman begins to tell him she sees a spirit coming from the ground. Saul asks her what it looks like? and she begin to tell him an old man, wearing a robe coming up. The word says that Saul bowed down prostrate and Samuel asked him why have you disturbed me by bringing me up? Saul began to tell him that he was in distress, he began to tell Saul what was going on in his life.

Samuel tells Saul that the Lord has turned his back on him and the word that he had predicted through me Samuel was now coming to pass. Samuel tells Saul that he will lose the kingdom to his neighbor, David. Samuel tells Saul because he didn’t obey God’s instruction, the Lord has done this today. Samuel says the Lord will hand over Saul and Israel to the Philistines, he tells Saul that he and his son will be with him the next day.

Saul immediately fell flat on the floor, and trembled in fear. The woman saw that Saul was shaken and she offered to feed him so that he may strength to go on his way. Saul couldn’t eat but the men joined the women. The word said she butchered a fat calf and kneaded it without yeast, then she placed it in front of Saul and his men, and they ate. The same night they got up and left.

 

Saul was reminding that God’s word will stand. Not following instruction will place us in a certain position, but it is important to look at what we do after we don’t follow instruction. Because Saul never admitted to it being his and repented for not following instruction, the spirit of God ended up leaving from him and an evil spirit was left. Everything that was not of God Saul manage to do. He had begun to go to God with a half hart. Meaning he did pray but he also lived with a hate for David so strong that he wanted him dead. And when he needed God and God didn’t answer he went to a medium.

Be ready to say Lord I relent not following your instruction and I repent for my disobedience this is important for moving forward. If you can’t see the problem you can’t repent and have forgives for yourself and other people and this halts your deliverance

Now for the most Important part If you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that where ever you are the Lord is showing up for you, I pray that your faith is building stronger and your foundation is brick strong. Even though we may have some hard days and sometimes you may even question your faith. Those times are needed, those are the times when we need to lay prostrate, or read the word, or maybe go to fellowship at church bible study to just a conversation with a fellow Christian.

1 Samuel chapter 27

David among the Philistines

 

The word says that David thought to himself that one of those days he would be destroyed by the hands of Saul. He thought the best thing that he could do was, escape to the land of the Philistines. He felt then Saul would give up his search and he could slip away.

The word says that David and six hundred men and their wives, this included David’s two wives all went to Gath. When Saul found out that David had went to Gath he stopped searching for him.

The word says that David had said to Achish the son of the king of Gath, that if he had found favor on David then to assign a place for him on the country side. David reason was

“why should your servant live in the royal city with you”

the scripture says on that day Achish gave David Ziklag and it has belonged to the king of Judah ever since. The word says that David lived in Philistine territory for a year and four months.

While David was with Achish in Gath, he would raided the Geshurites, the Girzites and the Amalekites and he would kill men and women leaving no one alive to be able to tell what he did. And when Achish would ask him where he went raiding that day, David would tell him against the desert of the Kenites, or against the desert of Judah and he would be dishonest with  Achish as long as he was in Gath. Achish trusted David and said to himself

“He has become Odious (unpleasant) to his people, the Israelites, that he will be my servant forever.”

This is a short chapter but it packs with so much vital information about David’s survival. David knew that Saul wouldn’t stop, he knew that Saul couldn’t control himself. He also knew that he couldn’t sleep among the Philistines while they knew he was killing their people, but what made sense was that if he killed everyone then Achish would think it was Saul that was killing them.

Now for the most Important part If you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

I Samuel Chapter 26

David again spares Saul’s life

Verse 1 – 12

The word of the Lord says, the Ziphites went to Saul and said isn’t David hiding in the hill of Hakilah, which faces Jeshimon?  Saul went to the desert of Ziph, with his three thousand chosen men of Israel, to search there for David. Saul made a camp and waited for David beside the road on the hill the word says that David stayed in the desert. When he saw that Saul was following him he sent someone to check and found that Saul had defiantly arrived.

David asked three of his men who would go with him in to the camp and Abishai said that he would go. That night David and Abishai went to the camp of Saul and his men, they saw Saul and his men sleeping. Saul’s spear was in the ground right beside his head. Abishai said to David, today God has handed Saul to you. Abishai asks David “now let me pin him to the ground with  one thrust of my spear, I won’t strike him twice” David answered Abishai saying “ Don’t destroy him, who can lay a finger on the Lord’s anointed and be guiltless? As surely as the Lord lives” David continues to tell Abishai that God will strike Saul when it is time, but he cannot lay a hand on the Lord’s anointing. David took the spear and a jug of water from near Saul’s head and moved it.

Praise God this reminds us that there is no reason to be petty or play the tit for tat game. These are the reason we say may God have mercy on your soul. If someone tries to attack you or destroy you, we are to allow God to determine what will happen to them. This is the reason why we look to the left in the right.

Yes there are times it may feel like the flesh will win the battle but remember David, he had a man chasing him even when they had squashed the problem, and Saul just kept coming back. Even if Saul did kill David, he would still been dealt with.  If David had gone against God’s instruction then he would have been walking in Saul’s position left with an evil spirit from the spirit of God leaving him. So instead David shows him how close he was by taking to items that for certain would look for

When we open the door for retaliation, then it becomes about us not about God!

Verse 13 –  25

The word says that David crosses over to the other side and stood on a hill some distance away and called out to the army and Abner the son of Ner. David asked them why didn’t they Guard their king and then he asked them where was his spear and water jug. David to the men that the deserved to die for failing to protect their king.

Saul recognized David’s voice and said

“Is that you David my so?” David asks Saul what has done and why is he pursuing him? David says If it’s God then may he accept an offering but if it’s man then may they be cursed before the Lord. They have now driven me from my share in the Lord and inheritance, now do not let my blood fall to the ground far from the Lord. The king of Israel as come out to look for a flea, as one hunts a partridge in the mountains”

Then Saul asked David to come back home, because David considered his life precious, he told David he would not try to hurt him again, Saul says I have sinned.

David told Saul to send over a young man to get his sword. And told Saul the Lord handed him to him but he did not lay a finger on the Lord’s anointed, so may the Lord value my life and deliver me from all trouble. He reminds Saul that the Lord rewards a man for his righteousness and faithfulness,

Praise God for David’s faithfulness and righteous walk. It is important to deal with people according to what the Lord say. There will be times you will feel an internal war between your flesh and your spirit the most important thing to remember is the inheritance that God has promised.

Now for the important part, if you are looking to build your foundation on faith google, download a free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Begin your walk with word study, fellowship, and worship.

Be blessed

 

 

I Samuel chapter 25

Blessings everyone,

When we trust in God, we begin to start to shift to the next level. The harder it gets you will have to push in the mist of the shift. When we ask the Lord for a fresh wind, he will bring it so strong that you will have to push to get to your promise. Special thanks to @realfaith Ieshea Hartwell thanks for you obedience Friday night.

I have been blessed to be able to serve as founder of this blog From Sinner to Saint Blog and Journey in Praise Ministry (www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com) and the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall. I also serve as one of the leaders of the Walk it Out group on Facebook. Okay lets get into the word of the Lord!

I Samuel Chapter 25

David, Naval and Abigail

Verse 1-11

The word tells us that at this time Samuel had died and all Israel assembled and mourned for him; and they buried him at his home in Ramah.

David had moved down into the desert of Maon. There was a man in Main who was very wealthy and had property. The word says he had a thousand goats and three thousand sheep. The mans name was Naval and his wife’s name was abigail, the scripture says she was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was mean.

David was in the desert when he heard that Naval was shearing, David sent ten young men to Naval to say.

Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!

The men were to say on David’s behalf that he heart’s that it’s shearing time. 

When your shepherds were with us, we did not mistreat them, and the whole time they were at Carmel nothing of theirs were missing. Ask your own servants and they will tell you. Therefore be favorable toward my young men, since we come at a festive time. Please give your servants and your son David whatever you can find for them.”

The word says when David’s men arrived, they have Nabal David’s message, and Nabal by saying who is David and why should I take food from my servants and give it to him and his men.

Read how David’s message came to Nabal. Which such great wishes of greatness, and Nabal still remained mean spirited. This reminds us that some people, no matter what you do for them no matter how much you speak good grace in to their lives, they will not move from their ways.
Verse 12-22

David’s men returned back and when they told David what Nabal said David told his men to put on their swords and David put his on as well. The word says about five hundred went up with David, and two hundred stayed with the supplies.

One of Nabal’s servants told his wife Abigail that Nabal had hurled insults at David’s men, and that the men were very good to them.

“Night and day they were a wall around us all the time we were herding our sheep near them. Now think it over and see what you can do, because disaster is hanging over our master and his whole household.”

The word says Abigail wasted no time. She gathered up as much as she could fit on her donkey (see scripture for details of what she packed for David). The word says she told her servant to go ahead and she would follow him, but she didn’t tell her husband.

As she rode her donkey in to the mountain ravine she saw David and his men coming toward her David had just said that Nabal had paid his good back with evil, and may God deal with him if he leaves one man alive of all who belong to Nabal.

Praise God Abigail new who David was and who’s David was. The servant knew what David capabilities were. Remember the song that drove Saul into a Jealous rage Saul killed thousands, but David killed ten thousands.

David felt that Nabal’s evil was should not go unpunished and what he knew was true was that God confirms the word of his servant.

Lastly look at Abigail, it was nothing to pack up food and something to drunk for the men. But it was everything to move quickly to save her life and her servants life.

Verse 23- 31

The word says when Abigail saw David she quickly got off the donkey and bowed before him with her face to the ground. She told David to pay no attention to the wicked man Nabal, he is a fool like his name. She tells Saul since the Lord has kept you from shedding blood with your own hands. May the Lord let all your enemies and all whi intend to harm you be like Nabal.

Abigail gives honor to David for fighting the Lord’s battles she speaks good word over his life, and asks him to remember her when the Lord blesses him with success.

Praise God Abigail came to David humble and knowing God’s vision for him. Abigail served as an intervention, if David killed Nabal with his own hands because he was upset, he would have had to deal with that sitting on his spirit.

Verse 32- 44

David gave Abigail the Lord’s blessings for meeting him and saving him from bloodshed. He tells Abigail that not only did she save her life but she saved everyone who belong to Nabal.

David accepted what Abigail had to give him and told her to go home in peace. When Abigail got home Nabal was drunk and feasting like a king,  she waited u til the next day to tell him what she did.

The word says his heart failed him and he turned to stone. Ten days later the Lord struck Nabal and he died.

The word says when David heard about Nabal’s death he praised God for upholding his cause for the way Nabal had treated him.

Then David sent word asking Abigail to be his wife. The word says that Abigail quickly got on her donkey with five of her maids and went with David’s messengers.

The word let’s us know that David also married Ahinaom of Jezreel and so he had two wives. Saul had given his daughter Michal away to Paltiel  

Glory be to God, this chapter reminds us that when someone wrongs us there is no need to go for revenge. The Lord will uphold his servant. This is why we are not to look to the left and the right but straight ahead. The Lord will handle your left and right you will have to just trust in him for your forward.

Now for the important part if you are looking to build your foundation in faith turn your bible, Google or download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation in faith with worship; word study, prayer and fellowship.

Be Blessed
