Knowing God: Week 1 - Devotion 2

In your Bible study time this week, you looked at the stories of David, Elijah, and Hezekiah. You saw that they began to know God better as they relied on Him. This is a pretty good practice for us too.

Spend some time today rereading over one of the stories.  

David’s story is found in 1 Samuel 17:1-58.  

Elijah’s story is found in 1 Kings 18:20-36.  

Hezekiah’s story is found in 2 Kings 19:8-19.  

Once you have read the story of your choice, answer the following questions:

  • How did the person rely on God?

  • How did God respond?

  • How can I rely on God like the person in the story today?


Don’t look at the characters in the Bible as fictional people, or as outdated examples. Think of them as people just like you. Their lives are recorded in the Bible to serve as models for you. Don’t miss the chance to learn from them.
