2 Chronicles 7-9, Luke 11:1-28
I didn’t realize the commands to ask seek and knock were accompanied by the story about asking for bread. I love how the Bible says you will receive it not because of friendship but because of your “shameless audacity” haha. It’s ok to be like that with God!
14if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. -ellie
Praise God for his steadfast mercy and kindness. So sad that a generation can see the fire of God come down from heaven and still turn away from his ways later in their lives. May we guard our hearts to not do the same.
8I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his impudence he will rise and give him whatever he needs.
Both readings really spoke to me, I was struck by Luke 11:24-26 (The Return of Unclean Spirit)…in particular the part about the spirit returning to its original house and upon finding it clean and in order goes and gets more spirits more evil then itself to come and live in the house. This reminded me that even if our “houses” are in order, that we seek God and are strong in our faith, there are spirits that will continuously test us and enter and live in our homes but I know that God will cast away these spirits if only we put our faith in him.
Thank you for sharing this, Lisa. I didn’t understand that part when I read it
