In 2 Chronicles, Hezekiah who was a great King was told by God that his time was up. He asked for more time and a sign from God that the Lord would bless him with longer life. God tenderly asked him what sign would he prefer? Time to speed up or to go backwards. Hezekiah chose time to go backward and God honored his request for longer life and a crazy miracle of time going backward to confirm the miracle. Not sure what you need but perhaps today you and I can ask God for help, even a sign He is with you in your circumstances.

One last thing. By living an additional 15 years Hezekiah had a son in his old age named Manasseh who became the very worst King of Judah, though later in life He got saved.

Let’s be mindful when God blesses us, it is not for our own gain, to slack off, be less of a parent or Servant but instead to keep occupying and even gain new territory for the Lord as we all finish strong like Caleb and take the most challenging mountain in front of us.

Let’s try and avoid adultery today! 😳🙌🏻

In Proverbs 7 it is telling us, “My son, keep my words, and treasure my commands within you.” The reason we need to keep God’s Word close is, “that they my keep you from an immoral woman,” who “looks through a lattice (crafty), sees a young man devoid of understanding, who took the path to her house where she, met him, with attire of a harlot, and a CRAFTY heart, she was lurking, loud, her feet could not stay at hime, she finds him, perfumes her bed, tells him her husband is away, and then entices him.”

After it is all over we are told, “For she has cast down many wounded, and ALL WHO WERE SLAIN BY HER WERE STRONG MEN.”

Statistics are fairly consistent that approximately 50% of married couples experience adultery. It ruins lives. Remember, build barriers around your life, relationships and interactions to protect you. Don’t eat or travel alone with opposite sex. Monitor your social media contacts. Stay away from internet porn. Stuff like that. When temptation comes “resist the devil and he will flee.”

So, let’s avoid adultery today🙏

Devo for YOU🤗

In Mark 10, Jesus asks Blind Bart “what do you want me to do for you?”

In 2 Chron. 1:7 “That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, ‘Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”

In Mark, the disciples “shusshed “ BART but he threw off his stripped jacket that identified him as blind, provided protection and provision as people knew not to run him over, and to give him grace, BEFORE Jesus healed him. BART knew EXACTLY what he wanted Jesus to do.

He received his healing in spite of disciples selfishly getting in the way and shusshing him away. Jesus saw his need and met him at his faith.

Solomon was also given the same question. He too knew exactly what he would ask God for…WISDOM to lead people and LARGENESS OF HEART to love the people.

What is on your mind and heart today? Jesus has come into your life…today…and…is…asking…”What do you want from Me today?”

As you pray…rest…abide…what is your answer? It could be the very thing you have needed all along to move forward in the ministry, calling, and life God has in store for you now.🙏🔥
