Daily Bible Reading Day 105: Ecclesiastes 2

Ecclesiastes 2

Our pursuits in life should not be for fleeting things.  Working our fingers to the bone to earn money but to have no enjoyment in life, isn’t right.  Wisdom alone isn’t enough.  We all will die someday.  Many things won’t matter anymore.  However, to those who know the Lord they will have an eternal life.  May we love and serve the Lord and others, wholeheartedly and remember we will have eternity with Christ.

Solomon spent the early part of his life accumulating.  He collected expensive things, women, money, livestock, slaves, and power.  He still wasn’t happy and fulfilled.  These are all temporary fixes.  Nothing that this world has will ever fill the void like God.  You will never see a U-Haul truck following a hearse.

Daily Bible Reading Day 96: Proverbs 24

Proverbs 24

Proper planning and wisdom are greater than having brut strength.  Wisdom is a part of having strength.  In the world today, self-sufficiency is highly regarded.  But if you do not know how to do something, asking for advice is important.  Do not look at asking for advice as a sign of weakness.  Not asking for advice is what is foolish.

Harboring resentment and thinking about revenge are signs of sin.  Just like thinking of someone in a lustful way is just like committing the sin, so is wanting to take revenge.  An eye for an eye is not for us to do, God will take care of the revenge.  It is easy to gloat when an enemy fails.  King David did not gloat when Saul died.  Let God take care of our enemies.  Ask for forgiveness if you feel vengeful and do not carry that burden.

Life has its ups and down.  Our greatest lessons are learned in our hurts and failures.  When we are in these valleys, seek God and ask what you need to learn.  Situations do get better if you let God carry you through them.

Daily Bible Reading Day 344: 2 Chronicles 10/Revelation 1

2 Chronicles 10

Rehoboam succeeded Solomon as King of Israel.  Unfortunately, Rehoboam was in over his head.  He looked for advice just from his peers than from his father’s advisers.  He did not know how to handle difficulties and kept his focus negative.  He inherited the richest kingdom and lost it all.

Revelation 1

Revelation is a book about prophesy.  John was the writer.  He was one of the twelve disciples.  A lot of the scriptures include symbolic language and illustrations.  It is impossible to comprehend it all.  It can be intimidating to try and understand it.  However, let us remember, God will prevail and Jesus will return, so we must be ready.  Persecution is inevitable when you are a believer.  Share the gospel and your testimony.  The times is near!

Jesus holds the keys to death and Hades (Hell).  Jesus can free us from sin and the bondage of sin.  We do not need to fear.  Jesus will restore our broken lives, if we let Him.

Daily Bible Reading Day 342: 2 Chronicles 8/ 3 John 1

2 Chronicles 8

King Solomon married many pagan women.  He married Pharoah’s daughter to have an ally.  Solomon would not allow this wife to live in his father, David’s palace.  He knew God would not approve.  However, God sees all sin.  Do not give place to the enemy.  It only takes sinning in one place in your life to cause you a downfall.

3 John 1

John, a disciple of Jesus, explained the importance of hospitality for the church towards missionaries.  Those who share the gospel should not be in it for money; it should be for sharing the gospel.  There are some ways to help traveling missionaries. We could help them by providing meals, a place to stay or financially helping their travels.  To help them is a blessing not just to them but to God.

John spoke of a man named Diotrephes, who was causing trouble in the church.  John said he would speak up if Diotrephes caused trouble.  If someone is doing something that is harmful against the church or the word of God, we need to speak up.  We are to do what is good, not evil.

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.
