This week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions

(Leaders: Copy and paste these into your groups.  If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.)

Chapter 16

Rather than taking the situation into his own hands, David was willing to be at God’s mercy. He trusted that if he did what was right in the moment, God would take care of his future.

Has someone treated you unfairly or unkindly? Perhaps you are tempted to retaliate or treat them poorly in return. What do you think God wants you to do? Could you give this person mercy and trust that God will take care of you rather than taking the matter into your own hands?

Chapter 17

God provided friends for David in the wilderness. They were sent by God to comfort him during his affliction and to stand by him, so he was not alone.

Do you have a friend who has stood by you through a trial? That friend was a gift from God. Be sure to thank her for being there for you.

Who do you know who is going through a trial right now that you can stand by and comfort? Take the time to reach out to that friend today through a simple text, email, phone call, hug, cup of coffee or card in the mail.

Chapter 18

Absalom was deceived in his rebellion. He had a plan to take over David’s kingdom but his life was cut short. Once again, God delivered David. Only this time, the delivery was from the hand of his own son and we see a broken hearted David crying, “my son, my son, my son.”

Have you been betrayed by a loved one? Though it is heartbreaking to walk through betrayal, what is worse is never seeing the person come out of their rebellion. Have you lost someone you love? Though your heart may be broken, God is for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you.   Praise God today for his faithfulness to you.

Chapter 19

Mephibosheth was completely devoted to King David. He was so devoted that he did not care about his own wants or desires. He watched and waited for his return. He looked for the King. He longed for the King and he loved the King.

How are you like Mephibosheth? Are you watching and waiting for the return of Christ? Do you look for, long for and love the King of Kings? How can you live more fully focused on God rather than your own wants and desires?

Chapter 20

A wise woman came out of nowhere and challenged the thinking of the military leader, Joab. She cried, “listen!” and he listened. What great courage this wise woman must have had to show up in this way – uninvited.

Is there someone in your life, headed for a crisis, whom you need to challenge in their thinking? We must tread lightly and prayerfully, as we confront others but we must also not give into fear. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak up. Pray and ask the Lord to show what time it is.

  1. I loved the video message. You are so gifted in your ability to explain the Bible, a lesson to be learned from each chapter, and how it applies to our lives. Thank you Courtney!

  2. I just wanted to say that I’m so grateful for the resources you provide on here. I’m not part of any group, I just follow along on my own, but I’ve been so blessed by finding your website. This is perhaps the fifth study I’ve done with you. Before this method I would skip around a lot, or read many chapters at a time thinking that ‘I need comfort’ or ‘I need a challenge’. I think it was the idea that I would seek out what I needed in scripture, I guess. But by reading steadily one chapter (with references!) every day and really focusing, I have not only grown in faithfulness but I still get what I need, when I need it. God directs me to it. It has been so precious. An example of this is this week. I was feeling so discouraged over the weekend over some personal things. Then I read chapter 16. When I read what Shimei says to David I was so struck by how it followed the same pattern of what the serpent told Eve in the garden. He tells a truth (you’re a bloody man. Something in Chron touches on this, that David wasn’t allowed to build the temple because he had shed much blood). Then he tells a lie (you’re worthless, a son of Belial). Then he tries to get David to doubt God (God’s judging you and He’s forsaken you). But David trusts that God has a plan and can bring good out of evil. And as far as the things Shimei says I realized: David had shed much blood, but God said through Nathan that he had been forgiven. David was not worthless, he was a man after God’s own heart. And then Psalm 3 shows how David trusted that God had not forsaken him. So after reading this I went to prayer and began to replace the lies I was listening to with truth, and to believe and worship God.
    Once again, thank you for everything. I pray God blesses you!

    1. Hi Sheri,

      I know I am late to respond to your comment but I just reread it today and was so encouraged! Thank you for sharing this!!!

      Keep on going and walking with the King!
      Lots of Love,

  3. I am really enjoying this bible study, I’m a bit behind (starting vs. 17) but I’m steadily moving forward. I have tried to join in with your studies in the past, but I’m in a different season of life and it has been a true blessing. The Lord’s timing is perfect. I’m definitely becoming more confident. I LOVE using the color chart. It has been so enjoyable and has really helped me to take my time and really think on each verse. Thank you!

    1. Gina,

      Wonderful! I am so glad to hear that you are moving forward even though you are behind.

      Keep on going and keep walking with the King!
      Lots of Love,
      Courtney 🙂
