MAY 2022 - 1 SAMUEL
In His mercy, the Lord raises up Samuel and David within the cultural chaos. In 1 Samuel, we see the Davidic Covenant established, the promise that the Messiah will come from David’s line and that His throne will be established forever. We see God’s sovereignty and faithfulness in David’s path to the promised throne. We see God supernaturally empower both Saul and David to accomplish His purposes. And we see the effects of sin in the lives of God’s people and for those they lead.
One thing we can be clear on… His approach is entirely intentional, and it’s our opportunity to dig for the truth in the Word He gave to us. Enjoy the journey. It’s epic.

MORE INFO ABOUT ONTRACK DEVOTIONS
Rather than presenting preset conclusions, the inductive study method of OTD walks the user through a process of discovery, unlocking the Word by training them through repetition and modeling, how to ask good questions. Users are set free from dependence on media and other inputs that externally define for them what life is about and who God is. The Word becomes a real conversation with God.
IT'S A TOOL.

designed to add context to personal Bible study and to facilitate small group accountability.
