2 Chronicles 23-25
2 Chronicles 23-25 (Click to read Today’s Word)
2 Chronicles 24:19 19 Yet He sent prophets to them, to bring them back to the LORD; and they testified against them, but they would not listen.
“But they would not listen…” that is a terrible indictment on Judah and Jerusalem as they pursued other Gods and wooden images. Prophet after prophet went with a word of challenge to bring them back to the Lord…but they would not listen.
We can be people who LISTEN to God’s Word…
We can listen to God’s Word by LEARNING His Word. The more we learn of God’s Word the more we are able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
We can listen to God’s Word by INSPECTING our heart under the light of God’s Word. God’s Word will point out those areas that need work.
We can listen to God’s Word by STANDING on the principles we learn from HIS Word. We should never depart from HIS teaching in our life.
We can listen to God’s Word by TAKING His Word with Faith. We don’t always understand what we read but in time HE reveals that which we need to know.
We can listen to God’s Word by EXPECTING God to speak. Every time I expect God to speak…HE speaks. When HE speaks we must listen.
We can listen to God’s Word NEVER leaving the light of the path of God’s Word. The Psalmist said, “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
Father, speak to our hearts through Your Word and by the power of YOUR Holy Spirit…speak to us through godly Sunday School teachers…speak to us and challenge us through ministers dedicated to YOU and YOUR Word…and may we hear and respond rightly…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
