2 Chronicles 30:9 – Divine Reunion

Today’s Reading: 2 Chronicles 30:1‐31:21, Romans 15:1‐22, Psalms 25:1‐15, Proverbs  20:13‐15

2 Chronicles 30:9 – For if you return to the Lord, your brothers and your children will find compassion with their captors and return to this land. For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful and will not turn away his face from you, if you return to him.”

Observations:

  • Hezekiah and his assembly decided to repent and turn back to God.  They send a message throughout Israel and these words are contained in it.  It leads to a great revival in Israel. 
  • If you return to the Lord (2x)
  • Your brothers and your children will:
    • find compassion with their captors
    • return to this land
  • Why?  For the Lord your God:
    • is gracious and merciful
    • will not turn his face from you

Do you need to return to the Lord?  Are you far from him in your heart?  Do you know that God is gracious and merciful and will not turn his face from you?  Return to the Lord!

Are you telling others to return to the Lord?

Apply:  Prayer “Lord, show me the areas of my life that are distant from you.  Give me opportunities today to show people your grace and mercy and encourage them to return to you.”

Hezekiah was used by God to be his mouthpiece to Israel and tell them to return to the Lord.  Who needs to hear these words from you today?

  1. Sam,

    Thank you for doing this study. As I look over this day’s scripture, I am stricken by how God is calling me to the ministry he revealed to me some time back. Like the Levites, I let obstacles get in my way but am inspired to get back on course. Thanks for last week at camp and all you do.

    1. Brian –

      Thanks for the words. I love your humility in person and in your comment. We all let obstacles get in our way at different points in our walk. The discipline is to let God work through us to remove them. I’m excited to walk through the Bible with you. Let me know what you are getting out of the readings each day.
