The Lord Searches the Earth looking for a heart fully devoted to him. King Asa started out his reign fully committed to God but along the way his heart turned. He asked another king to help him in battle instead of God like he once did. The Lord is still today looking for a heart fully committed to him
2 Chronicles 16
It’s so important that the younger generation listens to the older generation. There would be a lot less mistakes made if the advice of the older wiser generation was heeded. Rehoboam, Solomon’s son made a big mistake by not listening to the older generation and ended up with with a portion of the kingdom instead of the whole kingdom.
2 Chronicles 10
It when you know you shouldn’t sin so you only do it a little bit or only in a certain area but honor God in other areas. Solomon knew he should not have married foreign wives but he did it any way. Solomon did have his limits and convictions so he was sinning but only so far.
2 Chronicles 8
King David made it a habit through out his life to ask God for advice. And the Lord wants us to do the same. God is all knowing and he is so generous when we ask for advice, wisdom, counsel, etc. 1 Chronicles 14
God will send confirmation to confirm that what he spoke over us either will happen or that we are in the right place at the right time just like he did for David when he became King. God loves confirming His message to you. He did it for me when the Lord told my husband and I to start giving groceries away once a month. If he confirmed the word He spoke over me God will confirm things for you too.
1 Chronicles 14
God wants to speak to us about the future so we know how to make the right decisions when the time comes. It was spoken about David over and over again that he would anointed king. Not everyone recognized when the time came but a couple of groups did. One of those groups being the tribe of Issachar all because they recognized the signs of the times.
1 Chronicles 12
In our darkest hour in our hardest trials God will send encouragement to help us keep going. David was going through a hard time but the Lord used a Benjaminite named Amanai who spoke words of encouragement to David
1 Chronicles 12
When people come against us in word or action we need to take that back to God and not retaliate or take it to heart. King Hezekiah was very good about this and when the Assyrian King came to take over Judah he went to the Lord about it, not once but twice.
2 Kings 19
If we love the Lord but don’t know what the Bible says we are just going to do what is right in our own eyes and that is not good. King Josiah loved the Lord with everything he had but it wasn’t until he heard what was written in the Book of the Law that he knew how to follow God.
2 Kings 22
Some of the kings of Israel went to the high hills of Israel and made alters and burned incense to other Gods which made the people stumble. And even when a Godly king came into power they would do so many things right except tear down those high places which again made the people stumble in their generation and generations to come. We have high places in our lives where we have given our ours and lives to the Lord but there are things we still run to that are not good. We have to allow God to help us tear them down.
2 Kings 12
