chronological day 181 :)

Here we go!  Today we are reading 2 Kings 16:19-20, 2 Chronicles 28:26-27, Isaiah 13, 14,15, and 16.  The Old Testament isn’t always easy to read, but I hope you are seeing that God always restores and is always at work to get His children back. Here’s what I am thinking about:

181

I hear lots of people reject the “God of the Old Testament”.  They won’t read the Old Testament because He seems harsh.  They won’t believe His kindness because they don’t see it, but God is not harsh.  Not in the OT, not in the NT, not now. His character toward His people is always the same. In every judgement, there is love and there is an opportunity for restoration. Every time.

“When this is all over,” Judah answers,  “the tyrant toppled, the killing at an end, all signs of these cruelties long gone, A new government of love will be established in the venerable David tradition. A Ruler you can depend upon will head this government, A Ruler passionate for justice, a Ruler quick to set things right” (Is. 16:5 MSG)

God always wants us back. He is a righteous judge, and He doesn’t act without a cause.

One thought on “chronological day 181 :)

  1. Ralph Madrigal says:

    Isaiah 16:5
    Then GOD will establish one of David’s descendants as king. He will rule with mercy and truth. He will always do what is just and always do what is right.

    It’s a relieving feeling to know that even through all the destruction and the ruins GOD still keeps his promise to keep Jacob’s heirs on the throne. That’s not to say that if the next king does not fulfill his GODLY ways that he will be cleansed from his role as well. GOD stays true and desires us to be in his image, those are big shoes to fill right???. Doesn’t mean I won’t try with every second he lets me have.
