2 Chronicles 31
2 Chronicles 31:3-5 The king contributes to the sacrifice personally before he requires it of the people. Pray with your children or someone today that you can give them a model to follow.
2 Chronicles 31:10 “And Azariah the high priest, from the family of Zadok, replied, since the people began bringing their gifts to the Lord’s temple, we have had enough to eat and plenty to spare, for the Lord has blessed His people.”
God doesn’t need our gifts. You need to give them. Express to the Lord today how you feel about His generous reward for your faithfulness to Him.
2 Chronicles 31:14-20. We see in these verses everyone receives his fair portion, and God is pleased. Pray for faithful stewardship of God’s resources in the body of Christ today.
2 Chronicles 32
2 Chronicles 32:1-5 We can learn so much from the bible reading today that can help us maintain our victories. Hezekiah doesn’t wait until the enemy is at the gate before he mobilises his defences. Neither should you. Ask the Lord to show you where you are vulnerable to the enemy. Then ask Him to strengthen you.
2 Chronicles 32:7-8 Believe it, and declare it today over your life. “I don’t need to fear any enemy with You on my side, Lord. You are greater than any power in heaven or on earth! I praise You for Your power and protection.”
2 Chronicles 32:13 Even though the enemy may want to threaten us of how he brought destruction to others in the past. We are not just serving any god, anywhere. Only You, Lord, our one true God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, can save us! You deserve the praise.
2 Chronicles 32:22-23 There is no counterfeit for God’s peace. Ask the Lord to demonstrate His presence in your life to others through the peace He gives you.
2 Chronicles 32:24-25. We see again today that pride lurks around every corner, ready to pounce and pull you away from the Lord. Examine your mind and heart for any hint of pride, then ask the Lord to protect you from pride’s power.
2 Chronicles 32:31 I remember the words of the psalmist in Psalm 143:6-8. “I reach out for You. I thirst for You as parched land thirst for rain. Come quickly, Lord, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Let me hear of Your unfailing love to me in the morning, for I am trusting You.”
Proverbs 24:3-4. Lord, please build my house by Your wisdom. Fill it’s rooms with godly values and strong character.
Proverbs 24:10 Lord, give me grace under pressure; help me to function well when even when things are against me.
Proverbs 24:12 “Don’t try to avoid responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it. For God knows all hearts, and He sees you. He keeps watch over your soul, and He knows you knew! And He will judge all people according to what they have done.”
Lord, You know all hearts, and You see me. You keep watch over my soul. Help me not to shirk responsibility but to be a person of integrity in all I do.
Matthew 20:1-16 Pray that the Lord will help you understand the generous love He has toward all His people. Pray for humility as you receive the gifts and grace He as given you out of His generous love.
