1 Samuel Chapter 7 Discussion

    Notice that the children of Israel are depending on an "It" to save them. Meaning the Arc of the Covenant. Notice that didn't work too well! It was not until they saw the errors of their ways and ask the Almighty God to save them did things turn around. I think this is a good message for today. We as a nation put too much emphasis on the "It's" of the world to secure us. Social Security, Insurance, Retirement, 401K's, etc. We need to lift our eyes upon the Lord and Savior and ask him to heal our land and put in the minds of our leaders to praise the God of all creation. Then, "HE" not "IT" will save us and heal our land.

    @Anne I truly believe if you confess you sins and as for forgiveness, god will listen and help you. You are correct.
  • Anne on 1 Samuel 7 - 6 years ago
    A penitent and contrite heart God will not despise. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us of our sins (1Jn.1:9).

    i believe in the power of sacrifice. In this text while Samuel is offering the sacrifice the Philistines geared up for the attack but we serve a mighty God who show up when we least expect in our distressful situation. Amen

    Of all the verses in this chapter, the one that speaks to me is number 9. I want to completely offer everything to the Lord for His blessing, knowing He doesn't just want a little bit all of what I can give.

    Coll, in verse 12 I believe from surrounding scripture that Ebenezer is referring to that rock. Praise God in the highest and bless his Holy name through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen.
  • Coll on 1 Samuel 7 - 8 years ago

    Samuel prayed for Israel, and he urged them to repent. We are to pray for our nation as well.
