1 Samuel 4-7
God is powerfully for us when we put him first and powerfully against us when we don’t.
God cannot be manipulated to do our will. (1 Samuel 4:1-11)
Not every calamity is God’s judgment, but some are.
If we don’t don’t delight in God, we have an idol.
It’s not hard to figure out when God is against us. (1 Samuel 5:1-6:12)
The God of her ancestors became her Savior.
Giving Samuel away completed her delight in God.
Things go much better when we put God first. (1 Samuel 7:3-13)
Clean house makes a clean heart & mind.
Worship is our most urgent task.
It’s never too late for a new beginning.
