2022 Day 231 – 2 Kings 24-25; 2 Chronicles 36

2022 Day 231 – 2 Kings 24-25; 2 Chronicles 36

As King Cyrus commented, “…Whosoever there is among you of all his people, Jehovah his God be with him… (2 Chronicles 36:23) God is still with us today if we will follow Him. “So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:6) Today’s reading: 2 Kings 24-25; 2 Chronicles 36

2022 Day 230 – Jeremiah 38-40; Psalms 74, 79

2022 Day 230 – Jeremiah 38-40; Psalms 74, 79

The words we have recorded as Psalm 80 in our Bibles are thought to have been written during the Babylonian captivity or possibly during some other time of serious distress of God’s people.  Whatever the time, it is obvious the Psalmist desired the saving power that could only come from one source.  “Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved!” (Psalms 80:3)  Twice more in this same chapter these words are repeated with slight additions.  “Restore us,…

2022 Day 229 – Jeremiah 35-37

2022 Day 229 – Jeremiah 35-37

God is love (1 John 4:8), but that does not mean that His people are free to disobey His word.  God sent word thru Jeremiah to the Jews letting them know His displeasure with their actions.  “Yet I persistently sent to you all my servants the prophets, saying, ‘Oh, do not do this abomination that I hate!’  But they did not listen or incline their ear, to turn from their evil and make no offerings to other gods.  Therefore my wrath…

2022 Day 228 – Jeremiah 32-34

2022 Day 228 – Jeremiah 32-34

Jeremiah brought commands from God to King Zedekiah, but the king doubted the plan.  “King Zedekiah said to Jeremiah, “I am afraid of the Judeans who have deserted to the Chaldeans, lest I be handed over to them and they deal cruelly with me.”  Jeremiah said, “You shall not be given to them. Obey now the voice of the LORD in what I say to you, and it shall be well with you, and your life shall be spared.” (Jeremiah 38:19-20)…

2022 Day 227 – Jeremiah 30-31

2022 Day 227 – Jeremiah 30-31

Even though they were God’s chosen people, at times the Jews were extremely disobedient to Him.  During one of these periods of disobedience, the Rechabites were used as an attempt of a wake up call to the Jews.  They were told to order the Rechabites to drink wine.  Of course God knew how these people would respond.  “We have obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, in all that he commanded us, to drink no wine all…

2022 Day 226 – Jeremiah 26-29

2022 Day 226 – Jeremiah 26-29

God spoke thru Jeremiah and listed out a lot of things that were going to happen, but verse 22 of chapter 30 sums up a good motivator for us today “You shall be My people, And I will be your God.” Today’s reading: Jeremiah 26-29

2022 Day 225 – Jeremiah 23-25

2022 Day 225 – Jeremiah 23-25

We may not always understand what is going on in this life, but God does.  “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)  Here He is telling His people to stay strong while they are in captivity for many years.  Sometimes our patience struggles to last for a few days but He was asking them to hang on for years….

2022 Day 224 – Jeremiah 19-22

2022 Day 224 – Jeremiah 19-22

Jeremiah repeated the words from God to the people, but that did not make him very popular.  “And when Jeremiah had finished speaking all that the LORD had commanded him to speak to all the people, then the priests and the prophets and all the people laid hold of him, saying, “You shall die!”  (Jeremiah 26:8)  Jeremiah did not back down after this threat, but continued to warn the people.  He was doing as God had commanded him and knew that…

2022 Day 223 – Jeremiah 14-18

2022 Day 223 – Jeremiah 14-18

God told Jeremiah to go down to the potter’s house and He would speak to him there.  As the potter was working on a vessel and it messed up, he just reworked the clay and seemed pleased with his work.  God uses this example to compare to His connection with His people.  “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the LORD. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you…

2022 Day 222 – Jeremiah 11-13

2022 Day 222 – Jeremiah 11-13

We know there is only one true God, but in the Bible we read of many false gods that were worshiped.  Jehovah God was not happy anytime a false god was created.  “Can man make for himself gods? Such are not gods!  Therefore, behold, I will make them know, this once I will make them know my power and my might, and they shall know that my name is the LORD.” (Jeremiah 16:21)  Throughout the Bible He used many different methods…
