1 Kings 12:1 – 33
2 Chronicles 10:1 – 12:16
Good morning. I hope you are all bathing in the glory of the mighty maroons.
Anyway enough gloating. This mornings reading is sign of things ahead. After David and Solomon things start to go really pear shaped. The kingdom has now split into Israel (northern kingdom) and Judah (southern kingdom). Most of Israel are now worshipping idols and Judah ends up abandoning the law of the Lord. Egypt invade and well honestly things look bad. God’s people are in his land but they are not living under his rule. Stay tuned to find out just how bad the situation gets but also how faithful the LORD is to his promises. Especially his promise of a King who will reign on David’s throne foever.
2 Chronicles 12:14 summaries Rehoboam’s failure in one neat verse.
He did evil because he had not set his heart on seeking the LORD.
Have you set your heart on seeking King Jesus and him alone?
