I am going to work today, which is rare but am thankful for the extra money. :) "Be thankful IN all things. :)
Two things today jumped out to apply 1 Kings 20:42b Because you have spared the man I said must be destroyed.... How many times have I not followed God's instructions in correcting or rebuking or cutting myself away from someone and called it being merciful. So my apply on that would be "Follow God's instructions"
The second is 1 Kings 22:5 and 2 Chronicles 18:4 Then Jehosaphat added, "But first lets find out what the Lord says" I think that is how I should do everything in my life.
My Something New was Jehosaphats son marrying one of Ahabs daughters in 2 Chronicles 18:8
The other thing that caught my eye was 1 Kings 21:27-29
27 But when Ahab heard this message, he tore his clothing, dressed in burlap, and fasted. He even slept in burlap and went about in deep mourning.
28 Then another message from the Lord came to Elijah: 29 “Do you see how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has done this, I will not do what I promised during his lifetime. It will happen to his sons; I will destroy his dynasty.”
Even though Ahab would not see it, it would affect his children. So again it makes me realize how much what we do affects our descendants.
May you all have a Blessed and Peaceful Day.
