1 Chronicles 8-10 In our reading today we see how that because of Saul disobedience, his body and armor and the bodies of his sons and their armor became trophies for the enemy (1 Chronicles 10:8-10). It is not the will of God that we become trophies for the devil. It is the will of […]

1 Chronicles 3-5 In our reading today we have the prayer of Jabez. In recent years this prayer that Jabez prayed became famous in American Christianity.

2 Kings 15-17 In our reading today we have Israel walking the path to vanity (2 Kings 17:15). The path begins by rejecting God’s word, and once the Scripture is rejected, then vanity is followed and soon becoming vain is reached. The truth is it all begins in the mind (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). We must […]

Instead of finishing the burial they […]
