"Who is David, and who is the son of Jesse? There are many servants nowadays who break away each one from his master. Shall I then take my bread and my water and my meat that I have killed for my shearers, and give it to men when I do not know where they are from?” see I Samuel 25:10-11 NKJV.
This is part one of a series addressing obedience in worship. It is the purpose of this series to discern the false and embrace the true worship God seeks, the worship in the Spirit and in the truth. Taken from Saul's sin in I Samuel 15, we discover how contemporary, man-centered worship is disobedient and therefore no different than divination and idolatry in God's eyes.

In this bonus episode, Neil and Phil compare the story of Hannah in the book of I Samuel to the story of Mary in the gospel of Luke and draw out some themes that turn out to be important throughout the Bible. In the course of the conversation, they discover that the Old and New Testaments have surprising parallels to the Peter Green and Buckingham/Nicks eras of Fleetwood Mac. And speaking of music, as an homage to Vince Guaraldi's classic music for A Charlie Brown Christmas they've composed a jazzy, Christmas Special theme featuring Phil on electric guitar and drums and Neil on mandolin and electric bass. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to everyone!
The faceoff between the armies of Israel and the Philistines in I Samuel 16 is a classic scene. A giant came out to defy God's army and no man had the courage to face him. But David, a mere boy, accepted the challenge. He was faithful to the Lord. In this message, Brother Luke looks …

In Psalm 74, Asaph sounds forth his consternation over God's seeming absence in the midst of great trial. He asks, -why- and -how long.---Psalm 75 echoed Habakkuk 3 where the prophet's praise rises above the circumstance. As Hannah's -I Samuel 2- and Mary's -Luke2- psalms rise above circumstances and fears, so Asaph rises above the fear of coming trial -probably the invasions by the Assyrians-.

Today's Words of Inspiration come from I Samuel 16:6-7:When they came, he looked on Eliab and thought, ‘Surely the Lord's anointed is now before the Lord.'

David: Lived His Worship This week we dive into the life of David and how, in a shepherd field, his routine of worship developed and readied him for the battlefield. Psalm 89:15, I Samuel 17:45-47 Discussion topics 1. Opening question, nice and easy, what is worship? In your own words, what do you define worship […] The post Worship – A Life of Surrender appeared first on Navigation Church.
To Western eyes, I Samuel 28 offers a bracing vision of the spiritual world. Why are we so unnerved by frank accounts of spiritual confrontations? Why is it that people in non-Western settings have a very different response? Could it be that we're more formed by a materialistic account of reality than we realize? Okay, that last one is a leading question, but you get the point. Join us as we discuss the ways in which this fascinating chapter challenges our assumptions.
“O LORD my God, in You I put my trust; Save me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me, Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.” (vv. 1-2) “Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.” (v. 14) Today we will be looking at Psalm 7 and the history behind it. From the title of this Psalm, we know that David is the writer. We need to remember that David wrote over 75 of the 150 Psalms. Many of them were written during the time period when David is fleeing from King Saul who is attempting to kill him. To fully appreciate this Psalm and many others, it will be helpful to look back to the history behind them that we read about in 1 Samuel 12 through 31. Samuel the prophet had successfully led the nation of Israel for a number of years but was getting older. At that time the people wanted a king to rule over them like the other nations around them. So Samuel, with the Lord's permission, found and anointed Saul from the tribe of Benjamin to be their first king (1 Samuel 8-11). Saul would reign over Israel for 40 years. Saul started out good, but it was long before pride began to take over his life and he started making major mistakes. His first one was when he failed to wait for Samuel, and he went ahead and offered a sacrifice that only the priest were allowed to offer (I Samuel 13). Then in 1 Samuel 15, Saul was only partially obedient in obeying the Lord when it came to destroying the Amalekites. Samuel confronts him and he makes excuses and blames the people. This is where Samuel informs Saul that his sin of disobedience is as the sin of witchcraft and tells him that his kingdom will be taken from him and given to someone else. In 1 Samuel 16, we find that the “someone else” is a shepherd boy named David. David, probably still a teenager, is secretly anointed the next king of Israel by Samuel. In 1 Samuel 16 we also learn that the “Spirit of the LORD” departs from Saul and he is plagued by evil spirits. David who is already known for his musical abilities on a harp, is called upon to come to Saul's court to play for him. In 1 Samuel 17, David is catapulted to national fame when he fights the Philistine giant Goliath, and kills him before the armies of Israel. David is then made a commander in Saul's army and lead the troops out in battle against the enemies of Israel. This is where it begins to go downhill in David's relationship with King Saul. When David returns from his victorious battles, the women come out to meet him and his troops, and they sing, “Saul has slain his thousands and David his ten thousands” (1 Samuel 18:7). Saul becomes very jealous, and this is where believe that Cush, his kinsman from the tribe of Benjamin, who is mentioned in the title of Psalm 7, begins to tell lies about David. Cush must continuously tell lies and attempt to influence Saul to kill David over the next number of years. We don't know what lies Cush told Saul, but David was concerned enough to cry out to God for deliverance and vindication. "Shiggaion" is used only here in the Psalms (but see Hab. 3:1) and could mean "a passionate psalm with strong emotion." Some believe it comes from a word meaning "to wander, to cry aloud." The theme of this Psalm is God's vindication of His servant and judgment on his enemies (vv. 6, 8, 11). It is out of this conflict and rejection and time period, that David writes and sings this song of meditation to the Lord. Spurgeon wrote this in his comments about Psalm 7: “This may be called the Song Of The Slandered Saint. Even this sorest of evils may furnish occasion for a Psalm. What a blessing it would be if we could turn even the most disastrous event into a theme for song, and so turn the tables upon our great enemy.” God bless!
Asking yourself the hard questions...it's what great leaders do. David & Katy breakdown a well known bible passage to discover the questions that every leader should be answering. 15 GUT CHECK QUESTIONS FOR A LEADER #1 – “Love Is Patient” Am I giving others the same room to make mistakes as I want them to give me? #2 – “Love Is Kind” Do the people I lead actually like being around me? (If you want to know the answer to this question just ask yourself how much they ask to hang out with you outside of work!) #3 – “It Does Not Envy” Am I automatically jealous of anyone who has a great idea and constantly perceive others as a threat to my position? (Another leader struggled with this...it didn't go well with him...see I Samuel 18:6-9). #4 – ‘It Does Not Boast” Do I feel like I always need to remind people of my previous victories? (If we are obsessed with the past then we're not advancing towards the future!) #5 – “It Is Not Proud” Do I feel that I am the only one in the organization that has all of the answers? #6 – “It Is Not Rude” Am I always cutting people off mid sentence as soon as I discover that I do not like their idea...or am I willing to hear them out? (People don't always have to be right as long as they feel like they've been heard.) #7 – “It Is Not Self Seeking” Who is this about–really? #8 – “It Is Not Easily Angered” Are people afraid to bring me information that is true and accurate because they know I will lose my mind and begin to yell? (Don't shoot the mailman!) #9 – “It Keeps No Record Of Wrongs” Do I remind people of their past failures or encourage them in their current condition? #10 – “Love Does Not Delight In Evil But Rejoices In The Truth” Can people be honest and open with anyone in the organization, including me? #11 – “It Always Protects” Do I have the back of my leaders? It's very discouraging to work for someone who demands loyalty but will not extend it. #12 – “Always Trusts” Do I believe the people who lead their assigned areas can make day-to-day decisions without my input? #13 – “Always Hopes” Do I always automatically assume the worse or the best about people? It is amazing what can happen on a staff or in a ministry when the leader believes in the people he/she leads. #14 – ”Always Perseveres” Am I quick to give up on people after they make one mistake... or am I willing to teach them through it? #15 – “Love Never Fails” Do I have a high turnover OR a low turnover in the number of people who work/volunteer with me/for me? (If the number is high then maybe it isn't the people failing...) _____________________________________________________ Questions, comments, or episode ideas?

"Tem porventura o Senhor tanto prazer em holocaustos e sacrifícios, como em que se obedeça à Palavra do Senhor? Eis que o OBEDECER É MELHOR DO QUE O SACRIFICAR..." I Samuel 15:22 "Estendi as Minhas Mãos o dia todo a um POVO REBELDE, que anda por caminho, que não é bom, após os seus pensamentos; Povo que de contínuo ME IRRITA diante da Minha Face, sacrificando em jardins e queimando incenso sobre altares de tijolos..."

I Samuel 30:1-7 (ESV) Now when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, the Amalekites had made a raid against the Negeb and against Ziklag. They had overcome Ziklag and burned it with fire and taken captive the women and all who were in it, both small and great. They killed no one, but carried them off and went their way. And when David and his men came to the city, they found it burned with fire, and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep. David's two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail the widow of Nabal of Carmel. And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. And David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelech, “Bring me the ephod.” So Abiathar brought the ephod to David. I Samuel 30:18-20 David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken, and David rescued his two wives. , whether small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken. David brought back all. David also captured all the flocks and herds, and the people drove the livestock before him, and said, “This is David's spoil.” I Samuel 30:4 David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep 1. FIND your PEOPLE. I Samuel 30:4 David and the people who were with him raised their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep 2. If you don't RESOLVE your PAIN in this season it will FOLLOW you into the next seasons. I Samuel 30:6a And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, PAIN always leads to BLAME which always leads to more PAIN. You can become BITTER or BETTER. I Samuel 30:6b But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. I Samuel 30:7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelech, “Bring me the ephod.” John 4:23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. Worship is what gets your minds ATTENTION and your hearts AFFECTION. I Samuel 30:8 And David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I pursue after this band? Shall I overtake them?” He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake and shall surely rescue.” 3. Let God give me a NEW PURPOSE and DIRECTION for my life. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/coastalchurch/message
What's the Issue Anyway?Do we have a history with DUPLICITOUS actions?Do we act in a way opposite of the CULTURAL EXPECTATION? We can easily feel DEFLATED when our intentions are questioned. Questioning our intentions exposes our RESILIENCY.What Wisdom does David and Goliath in I Samuel 17 offer us?Legend has it David was not a stranger to the CONTEMPT of his brothers. Jesse sends David to check on the SAFETY of his brothers. (17-19)David HONORED his father by following through. (20-22)David was AMBITIOUS and saw an opportunity to advance. (23-26)The Philistines came to the land with the invasions of the SEA PEOPLES. Eliab questioned David's INTENTIONS from a place of woundedness. (28-29) David KEPT MOVING towards his opportunity for influence. (30)Don't Miss This!David did not get DISTRACTED by the accusation.What happens when my intentions are questioned in my everyday, normal life?Take a moment for REFLECTION.Assume that you might have unintentionally reopened an unhealed WOUND. Shake the dust off your sandals and walk BRAVELY down your path.How does this make me a better person and the world a better place?Resiliency will get you noticed and give you opportunities for INFLUENCE.What is God inviting you into today?Turn to prayer when I feel misunderstood or my intentions are questioned.Stop assuming I know people's intentions.Move forward bravely on my path.Thought-provoking questions:Can you think of a duplicitous person in your life? What have they done to make you question their motives?Why do you think David was so intent on facing Goliath?Read all of 1 Samuel chapter 17. What do you find disturbing and not reflective of Jesus in this story? What might be the projection of human values on God? Where do you see the values of Jesus in this story?Has something ever become a distraction in your life? Talk a little bit about that experience.When someone questions your intentions, what could you do to take a moment of reflection before responding?Have you ever unintentionally reopened a wound in another person through your words or actions? How did you respond to them?On a scale of 1-10 (1 being no resiliency and 10 being completely resilient) what is your overall resiliency to opposition at work, home, hobbies and friendships?
He was the last of the Judges of Israel, and was appointed by God to anoint the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David. Read the Old Testament book 1 Samuel for his story. Many believe that he is the author of the books of Judges, Ruth and the first 24 chapters of I Samuel.

Possible connections between Psalm 57 and the background of I Samuel 241. The word for "wings" in Psalm 57:1 is the same word "edge" for Saul's garment in I Sam. 24:4, 5, 11, 112. The "sons of men" use their tongues against David in Ps. 57:4 and David asks Saul why he is listening to man (same word) who tell him David is trying to kill him.3. They prepare a net for David's soul or life in Ps. 57:6 and Saul seeks David's life in I Sam. 24:11.4. While Ps. 57:6 expresses the idea of Lex talionis, in I Sam. 24 Saul who is pursuing David is helpless in David's hands. Psalm 57 and Jesus57:1 Compare Matt. 23:37 and Luke 13:34. 57:5, 11 The word "exalted" translated in the Septuagint is the same word for Christ being "lifted up" on the cross- John 3:14; 8:28; 12:3257:5, 11 God's glory is displayed in the cross- John 12:23, 28; 13:31-32; 17:1, 557:3, 10 God's lovingkindness and truth are pre-eminently displayed in the cross57:9 God is praised among all nations and peoples- Romans 15:9
