DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL
Friday 10th January 2020
2 Chronicles 17:1-10, 24:27-33.
WHOSE FOOTSTEPS ARE YOU FOLLOWING❓
From our text, Jehoshaphat walked with the Lord early in his life. He followed the footprints of his father who served God with all his heart. He refused to worship or consult Baals. He strictly abided in the commandments of God rather than to practice what the people of Israel often and easily fell victim to.
Fathers, what legacy are you leaving for your children. How to worship idols, womanise, drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes/weed and cheat others, engage in illegal business, occultism, fight, quarrel and wife battering? Be reminded that they are keenly observing your steps and things you practice. The Bible tells us that David led Jehoshaphat his son in the knowledge and fear of God. Lead your children on the path of righteousness for it pays great dividends.
Jehoshaphat remembered to take to the lifestyle of his father who honoured God. He cleaned up Israel from strange gods, worship of idols and introduced the teaching of the word of God in the whole land of Judah and Jerusalem. His life was loaded with unquantifiable blessings including peace from surrounding enemy countries. The Lord established the kingdom under his control, and all Judah brought gifts to him, so that he had great wealth and honour. What will your children remember you for⁉
As part of your New year resolution today let’s learn from Jehoshaphat and honour God in our lifetime. In order to enjoy the rich blessings of protection, peace and success from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob we should set good examples for our children and their generation.
If you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you will learn things you never knew.
Father, help me not to leave the ancient landmarks.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
Judges 1-3; John 2
