Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from 1 Kings 15 & 2 Chronicles 13-16. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.
I want to start by apologizing about yesterday’s post. I realized this morning that I failed to give the correct scripture notations for that. If you want to go back and read everything in context I have fixed the post.
Today’s post is a hard one to write about. It contains a lot of history. It contains a lot of ups and downs in the reign of Judah’s kings. At times they are following God, and at other times they turn their backs on him. When they follow him God gives them amazing results, but when they do not they see defeat.
How often does that same scenario play out in your own life? I bet it does more than we care to acknowledge. God does not want us part of the time. He does not want us when things are going good. God wants relationship with us through all times. He wants us to remain faithful and true no matter what is going on in life. He does not want us filling voids in the pleasures of the world. He wants us filling the voids with him and his spirit.
