The Sovereignty of God in Repentance
Today’s reading: 1 Samuel 1:21-4:22
Eli’s sons, though priests, were under the control of Satan, a liar and deceiver. He blinds the minds of those who will not believe God (2 Corinthians 4:4). He poses as an angel of light so that his captives do not perceive their true condition (2 Corinthians 11:14).
Pray for those who are in this state, that God, who is sovereign even over Satan, may grant them faith and repentance.
