God’s Word

It’s really neat how things are revealed as one draws nearer to God’s heart…The Bible is many types of books in one…It has mentors that show the way to live out life, their struggles, sins, cries from their heart…

Other mentors as well, the keepers of what is wrong, the example to not follow…Their hearts are recorded as well, sometimes there is good on the surface but an evil motive behind the actions…Or a mix of it all…

Solomon was a man of God, and was wise yes, God spoke with Solomon twice to counsel with him, but Solomon had a lust issue, huge one…Also idols from other nations that his many wives were from divided his heart spiritually and thus the decline in his later years…If there was internet porn he’d have been hooked like many are today both men and women…

Another example King Asa several generations after his father Solomon, He did follow God out of desperation and cried out to God…Found his account interesting actually…I don’t usually browse through the king hall of shame (few of fame) in 1st and 2ed kings and chronicles…

The stories are in there for a reason, if you put yourself in the shoes of the story, the content, context and the time period by looking up these things yourself in other texts it makes the reading that much more valid, and rich…

At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, “Because you relied on the king of Aram (Syria) and did not rely on the Lord Your God, the army of the king of Aram (Syria) has escaped out of your hand.Were not the Ethiopians and Lubim a huge army with a great number of chariots and horsemen? Yet because you relied on the Lord, He placed them in your hand. For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. You have acted foolishly in this; therefore, from now on you will have wars.” 10 Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in prison [in the stocks], for he was enraged with him because of this. And at the same time Asa oppressed some of the people.

11 Now the acts of Asa, from the first to the last, are written in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel. 12 In the [b]thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa developed a disease in his feet. His disease was severe, yet even in his illness he did not seek the Lord, but [relied only on] the physicians. 13 So Asa slept with his fathers [in death], dying in the forty-first year of his reign. 14 They buried him in his own tomb which he had cut out for himself in the City of David, and they laid him on a bier which he had filled with various kinds of spices blended by the perfumer’s’ art; and they made a very great fire in his honor.

2 Chronicles 16:7-14

He followed God, but later on fell away a pretty human life actually…what struck me however was the phrase “Yet because you relied on the Lord He placed them in your hand. For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro through the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His.”

God truly is the first and last, all scripture points to God’s character His heart, his personality, His Love…

It also points to those who Love God with their entire being men and women from cover to cover, and some who partially did, and some who didn’t at all…

Humans are fickle, God is not, He remains the same forever…And the more one get’s to know God because they want to, because they choose to, the more ‘nuggets of gold’ God will reveal to those who continually nonstop search out God, and rest in Him…

Just wanted to share with you bloggers the nugget I saw today…love you guys…

One thought on “God’s Word

  1. This is marvelous. I am always comforted and encouraged when I read of the flaws in Bible folks who God loved and used for His great purpose–it means I still have a chance! May He bless you abundantly today 🙂
