DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Chronicles 11-13
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Now when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, “They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance. My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak. Nevertheless they will be his servants, that they may distinguish My service from the service of the kingdoms of the nations.”” (2 Chronicles 12:7-8)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
Our God is the Faithful and Covenant Keeping God (Psalm 25:10). Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9). Our God is the Merciful God (Psalm 103:8). Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). Our God provides justice, correction, and judgment for all peoples and all nations (Psalm 67:3-4, Psalm 94:10, Psalm 105:7, Jeremiah 10:7, and Jeremiah 18:7-10). Our God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9), and our God is always faithful to bless all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 128:1). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Rehoboam reigned in Judah and Jerusalem, Shishak King of Egypt invaded Judah because of the unfaithfulness that was taking place towards God (2 Chronicles 12:1-2), the war between King Abijah of Judah and King Jeroboam of Israel, and how God had mercy on Judah (2 Chronicles 13:18). As believers in God, it is always good for us to keep in mind that our God is the faithful and the covenant keeping God (Psalm 25:10), and that it is always good for us to serve God faithfully, and for us to maintain our faith in God (Mark 11:22). Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Proverbs 9:10). Amen. God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). Amen. If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you always in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
