2 Chronicles 7:14 – If-Then

We’re all familiar with 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says: “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” This is a declaration and a prayer that…

John 12:8 – The Poor With Us

Whatever events happened around Him, Jesus always used them to teach about the kingdom of God. That which He taught His disciples then is useful for us today in one form or another.

1 Chronicles 29:3 – Giving To the House of God

It should be patently obvious to all Christians that God wants us to give to, i.e. sow into, His kingdom. We do this through our tithes and offerings. This is not a law or a strict command, rather it’s something we should want to do from our hearts. God seeks those who freely give and…

John 11:9 – Walk In the Day

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” (John 11:9-10) Do you want to walk and not stumble?  Walk…

John 9:31 – God Listens to Him

1 Chronicles 12:32 – Understanding the Times

If the days are evil, shouldn’t we know that? When all in the world isn’t as it should be, doesn’t the church have an obligation to understand what’s happening? And in knowing these things, aren’t we who believe obligated to act?  Scripture says, “Yes, indeed!” In 1 Chronicles 12:32 here is what we’re told about…

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 – He Broke Faith

What keeps us from drawing nearer to God?  Worse, what tears us away from Him? King Saul is the poster child as the answer to these questions. The prophet Samuel hadn’t been thrilled when the people he served wanted a king.  He was near the end of his life, and his two sons weren’t Godly…

1 Chronicles 1:39 – Genealogical Mayhem

When you come across genealogies in the Bible, do your eyes cross and you begin to nod off, wishing this portion of your daily reading would hurry up and pass? That’s a typical reaction, and one you might have in your first several times reading through the entire Bible in a year and coming across…

2 Kings 22:11 – He Tore His Clothes

When was the time you learned the Word of the Lord and tore your clothes?  It doesn’t have to be a literal tearing of your garments, rather it could be the moment of greatest brokenness or understanding in your life that caused you to turn to God and confess Jesus Christ as your Savior.  You…
