Sunday, July 16, Evident Grace Fellowship looked at this Big Picture Question:

How does God serve and protect His people?

And we looked at 1 Samuel 2:9-11:

1 Samuel 2:9 “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail. 10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them he will thunder in heaven. The Lord will judge the ends of the earth; he will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.” 11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah. and the boy was ministering to the Lord in the presence of Eli the priest.

We found these three answers to our Big Picture Question:

How does God serve and protect His people

  • He Guards His People
  • The Lord Judges the Earth
  • The Lord Gives us His Anointed

He guards His people.

1 Samuel 2:9 “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail. 10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them he will thunder in heaven.

God guards His people, and He breaks His adversaries to pieces.  The child of God’s steps are guarded on our day to day path and ultimately to heaven.  Nothing, not even anything we can do, will take us off that path.  And God thunders to your defense.

The Lord judges the earth.

1 Samuel 2:10b The Lord will judge the ends of the earth;

We live in a sinful, broken world.  The injustices of our days are gross and ugly.  We are called to be agents of justice in this world.  But we must always remember, God is the judge of this world.  And though we may see pain and injustice that we fear will go unpunished and unjudged, God will judge sin and right every injustice.

The Lord gives us His anointed.

1 Samuel 2:10c he will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.” 11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah. and the boy was ministering to the Lord in the presence of Eli the priest

Hannah concludes her song by prophesying that God will bring a king, His anointed who will protect His people with strength.  In light of what she has just sung, she isn’t singing of an earthly king.  God will sing His anointed, Jesus Christ, who protect God’s people in strength

Big Picture Question:  How does God serve and protect His people

Truth:  God righteously judges sin and guards His people through His anointed one, Jesus Christ.

Application:  Live knowing that you are constantly protected and cared for by Jesus Christ

Action:  Pray that God would move you to be more aware of and thankful for God’s service and protection.
