Daily Bible Reading Day 53: Job 22

Job 22

Eliphaz spoke to Job again.  He told him that sinners need to repent of their sins.  Eliphaz declared that Job thought too little of God and that God was with us.  Even though Eliphaz spoke the truth, it did not apply to Job’s situation.  Job asked for forgiveness and worshipped God all along.

God is with us, He is not far away.  He sees all of our sins.  We cannot hide them from God.  Repent and be free from the bondage sin brings.

 


Daily Bible Reading Day 340

Daily Bible Reading Day 340: 2 Chronicles 6:12-42/ 1 John 5

2 Chronicles 6:12-42

Solomon loved and worshipped God.  The temple could not contain the power and the majesty of the Holy Spirit.  Solomon showed the people the importance of worship.

Jesus is the only one without sin.  No one can escape it.  Since knowing this, we should cling even more to God, for protection and guidance.

God is waiting for us to pray to Him.  He hears every word we pray.  We may think God is distance because we do not hear direction.  But let us become still to hear the Lord.

1 John 5

Jesus is the son of God.  Before and after His baptism and resurrection.  Follow Jesus will not be easy, but we are under God’s covering.  We have eternal life accepting Jesus as our Savior.  Live your life for God.

If our prayers are aligned with the will of God, we should hear an answer.  God is not a genie that grants us every wish and desire.  Pray always!

Do not worship idols (money, success, beauty, people, etc.) because it removes us from God.  When we are believers, we have the freedom from the bondage of sin and a protective covering.  If we are in the world, we are worshipping Satan.

 

 


Daily Bible Reading Day 285

Daily Bible Reading Day 285:1Kings 15/Colossians 2

1 Kings 15

Sin destroys so much.  The country of Israel continued to fall back into sin.  Even after God destroyed Jeroboam’s descendants for their sins, Baasha made the same mistake.

We need to learn from our mistakes and not to repeat the same sins that cause so much pain and heartache.  Pray for guidance and protection against temptation.  Worship the one true King, not anything that would become an idol.

Colossians 2

Paul had to enlighten the Colossian Church about false teachings coming from the city of Laodicea.   Jesus Christ, alone is our source of knowledge and strength.  Jesus’ death on the cross gives us the freedom from staying in the bondage of sin.  Too many times, religious rhetoric and judgement of and from other Christians, stalls us from living according to His will.

 


Daily Bible Reading Day 272

Daily Bible Reading Day 272: 1 Kings 1/ Galatians 5

1 Kings 1

The King then took an oath; “As surely as the Lord lives, who has delivered me out of every trouble, I will surely carry out today what I swore to you by the Lord, God of Israel; Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne in my place. 1 Kings 1:29-30

King David was advanced in age.  David was ready to anoint the new king of Israel.  Usually, the son that was next in line would be the first born and then there after.  David first three sons, all died, so Adonijah was next.  However, David wanted Solomon to become king.

Adonijiah wanted to take the throne.  He tried to seize it without David’s knowledge.  His attempts were unsuccessful.  Nathan, the prophet, found out about Adonijah’s plot.  Nathan told Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother about the plot.  Bathsheba brought Nathan to King David to inform him of Adonijah.

King David, anointed Solomon and declared him to be King of Israel.  There was a feast and celebration.

Adonijah was fishing and heard about the feast.  He was scared and went to the altar to seek forgiveness.  He knew he was wrong and then he tried to fix it.  We need to do right by God, even if it means we do not get what we want.

King Solomon forgave Adonijah.  Solomon could rightfully, have Adonijah killed.  But he showed restraint, forgave him, and sent him home.  It takes a lot of maturity and wisdom to forgive than seek revenge.

Galatians 5

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1

Sin keeps in bondage to Satan.  Christ died for us to be free from sin and to free in Him.  Paul continually stresses that we are saved by faith, not works.  Many tire themselves out serving and doing so much.  While that is great, if the intention is not selfless, but selfish, it is wrong.

The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, kindness goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Every decision and action in our lives would serve a better purpose when we allow the fruits of the Spirit to dwell within us.


Daily Bible Reading Day 271

Daily Bible Reading Day 271: 2 Samuel 24/Galatians 4

2 Samuel 24

And David built there an altar to the Lord and offered and peace offerings.  So the Lord responded to the plea for the land, and the plague was averted from Israel.  2 Samuel 24:25

Israel was finally at peace.  Out of all of the leaders,  King David was able to bring Israel to that point.  However, King David was a sinner.  God was angry with Israel due to their sin.  An angel of the Lord brought a plague upon Israel and 70,000 men died.  The cause of sin was not explained.  But David asked the angel of God to bring the punishment upon him instead of more men.  David built an altar, offered peace offerings, and the plague stopped.

Galatians 4

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under th law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.  And because you are sons, God has sent the spirit of His Son into our hearts crying “Abba!  Father!”.  So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.  Galatians 4:4-7

Jesus was the perfect sacrifice.  He was human but without sin.  We were in bondage by following the law.  Jesus came to free us of that bondage.  We are saved by our faith, not through works.  Through Jesus, we have been welcomed into the family of God.
