Devotion: Doing Something About It

If you spend any time at all with the Lord He will start to burden your heart for a people group, or city, country, social injustice, SOMETHING! Nehemiah was burdened for his people in Judah and the state they were in. He didn’t wait around for someone else to do something about it He asked God to use him. God burden your heart for a reason so JUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! 😀
Nehemiah 1

Devotion: Don’t Let Your Surroundings Dictate Your Worship

The Jews that came back from exile were eager to worship God that they didn’t let the fact that they didn’t have a building to worship in or people disliking them and what they were doing. We as a people need to Just Worship!
Ezra 3

Devotion: God’s Timing

God’s timing is perfect and when what He has spoken over you is ready nothing will stop it. God told the people of Judah that after 70 years in exile he would bring them back to their native country. When the 70 years was up God did it in the most incredible way through a unlikely source.

Devotion: Teaching is Important

To live a life pleasing to the Lord is important and to walk the walk of a Jesus follower is super important as well but to teach others about Jesus those are not enough we have to be deliberate about Talking and teaching about God and His word.

Devotion: The Lord Searches the Earth

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

Devotion: Listening to the Older Generation

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

Devotion: Sinning But Only So Far

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

Devotion: Trusting in Numbers

Trusting in Numbers is when we trust in things or people more than God. David wanted to do a census of his fighting men instead of trusting God who had given him numerous victorious on the battle field. God longs for us to trust him over anything this world can offer and at the end of the day he is more trust worthy than anything we could put our trust in.
1 Chronicles 21

Devotion: Ask God for Advice

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

Devotion: Confirmation

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
