“He consulted God during the lifetime of Z’kharyahu (Zechariah), who understood visions of God; and as long as he consulted Adonai, God gave him success.”
2 Chronicles 26:5 CJB
When we place our lives in the hands of the LORD, we will have success in Him! When we trust in the world is when disaster hits!
“Desist, and learn that I am God, supreme over the nations, supreme over the earth.”
Psalm 46:10 CJB
When we step out our door, open our computer or get on our phone, we are entering the battlefield! Don’t do it without consulting the LORD!
“Come to me, all of you who are struggling and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

We all need the LORD! We need to consult him when we are struggling, have a burden and even when things are going well! We need Yeshua (Jesus)!
Have a blessed day in Him!
“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!
“Some time later, Yo’ash (Joash) decided to restore the house of Adonai.”

“Don’t you know that you people are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16 CJB
We all need some restoring or some house cleaning from time to time! We all allow junk to creep into our lives, too much news, social media or even bad teaching. Today is a good day to do some reflecting and checking!
“Create in me a clean heart, God; renew in me a resolute spirit.”
Psalm 51:12 CJB
The best way to be renewed in the LORD is by spending time in His word!
“I am melting away from anxiety and grief; renew my strength, in keeping with Your word.”
Psalm 119:28 CJB
The world around us can distress us and give us grief! The LORD wants us to be restored in Him!
Have a blessed day, be refreshed and restored in the LORD!
” Jehoiada made a covenant between himself, all the people, and the king, that they would be Adonai’s people.”
2 Chronicles 23:16 CJB
Knowing that the LORD loves us and saves us should give us a desire to just do His will! Our desire should be to be in His word, searching it out for instructions!
“The Torah of Adonai is perfect, restoring the inner person. The instruction of Adonai is sure, making wise the thoughtless or simple.”
Psalm 19:7 CJB
With all that is going on in the world, we get the privilege to be called His people! What an awesome thing it is to belong to the LORD!
“Be aware that Adonai is God; it is He who made us; and we are His, His people, the flock of His pasture.”
Psalm 100:3 CJB
So let’s be part of what the LORD is doing by partnering with Him and being a light in the dark world around us!
May your day be richly blessed!
