“He did what was right from Adonai’s perspective, but not wholeheartedly.”
2 Chronicles 25:2 CJB
Amaziah did what was right according to the LORD, but he did it halfheartedly! In other words he had no passion for the LORD and basically just went through the motions! Like some believers today.
“Clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with cries of joy!”
Psalm 47:1 CJB
We all really need to have are joy and a passion for the LORD! We need to serve the LORD with a whole heart! Be careful of just going through the motions.
“As a result, the anger of Adonai blazed up against Amatzyah, and He sent him a prophet, who said to him, Why have you sought out the gods of those people, when they couldn’t even rescue their own people from you?”
2 Chronicles 25:15 CJB
Do we have a passion for the LORD or has our passion faded? Here Amaziah gets a great victory from the LORD, but seeks the useless gods of the world, who can’t save you!
“So, because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth!”
Revelation 3:16 CJB
Today, if you feel like your passion for the LORD has faded, it may be because you’ve allowed the world to influence you! Too much news, talk radio or social media sites might be the problem. To have a passion for the LORD, get into His word and spend time with Him!
Have a blessed day seeking Him out!
