2 Chronicles 29
2 Chronicles 29:1-2 Lord I thank You today that we don’t have to follow in our parents footsteps if they didn’t follow You. Hezekiah reverses the downward trend of his father and pleases the Lord. If you struggle with the impact your parents failings have had on your, let me encourage you to take your hurts and difficulties to God.
2 Chronicles 29:3 in the very first month of the first year of his reign, Hezekiah puts first things first. Life is short. Today is there something in your life that needs reform? Ask the Lord to help you begin today.
2 Chronicles 29:15 The Levites purify themselves before they begin to purify the temple. Here I am again Jesus I want more of You living through me. Begin with me, Lord. Purify me. Please take the log out my eye before I try to take the speck out of my brothers eye!
2 Chronicles 29:24 “The priests then killed the goats as a sin offering and sprinkled their blood on the alter to make atonement for the sins of all Israel.” Let us take time and intercede for members of your extended family, asking God to forgive them and draw them closer to Himself.
2 Chronicles 29:29-30 Lord I just want to bow before you in adoration because Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself. I praise You with every fibre of my being please give me all it takes to honour You as long as I live, lifting my hands to You in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest of foods. I will praise You with songs of joy. (Psalm 63:3-5)..
2 Chronicles 29:35-36 In these wonderful verses we see God blessed Hezekiah’s efforts to re-establish proper worship in the temple. Ask the Lord to bless all your efforts to do right and good and to give Him proper glory in your life.
2 Chronicles 30
2 Chronicles 30:8-9 “Do not be stubborn, as they were, but submit yourselves to the Lord.”
When I sin Lord help me to run quickly to You and repent. Please help me not to be stubborn in my pride! But You are gracious and merciful. You will not turn Your face away from me. In You I find peace and restoration.
2 Chronicles 30:10 You wonder how these people could laugh at Hezekiah’s message of forgiveness and reconciliation. But don’t you see it every day, people laughing at God while the enemy plunders their families and homes? Let us rise up today and intercede for our nation to return to the Lord.
2 Chronicles 30:18-20 Are you one those who believe you have to clean up your act before you can come to God? That’s not God’s way. He says “Come.” Then He’ll heal you. Thank God for loving you and calling you even in your sin.
2 Chronicles 30:22 NLT “Hezekiah encouraged the Levites for the skill they displayed as they served the Lord. So for seven days the celebration continued. Peace offerings were sacrificed, and the people confessed their sins to the Lord, the God of their ancestors.” It is amazing to see what a little encouragement accomplishes! Ask the Lord to show you who you can encourage today in their service to the Lord.
2 Chronicles 30:26 Thank You Lord I am overcome with joy of Your unfailing love, for You have seen my troubles, and You care about the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to my enemy but have set me in a safe place (Psalm 31:7-8)
