2 Kings 19-21, Ephesians 6
19So now, O Lord our God, save us, please, from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, O Lord, are God alone.” -ellie
Oh Lord may we be those to be found loving the Lord Jesus Christ with a love incorruptible. Surely we cannot do so by our own fickle hearts. But only by the power of the Spirit. Bind our hearts to thee.
Eph 6:12 For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens…
I needed this reminder today! Struggling with a poor decision a friend made–it’s a heavenly battle, not mine.
I love Ephesians 6, and I love the way that the amor of God can help give a visual to help me serve him.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
God works through all in mysterious ways . Thankful to take this step in my faith with my lord and savior .
Interesting that 2 Kings 21 does not record Manasseh humbling himself before the Lord like 2 Chronicles 33 does. Anyone know why? Maybe bc Chronicles was written post captivity?
That’s interesting, I forgot all about that. Good question though! Anyone have any thoughts?
