DAILY BIBLE STUDY: 2 Chronicles 1-3
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life—but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king—wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.” So Solomon came to Jerusalem from the high place that was at Gibeon, from before the tabernacle of meeting, and reigned over Israel.” (2 Chronicles 1:11-13)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
God is Our Greatest Leader, God is Our Savior, and God is Our Eternal King (Deuteronomy 10:17, Isaiah 43:11-12, and 1 Timothy 1:17). Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9). Our God is the God of love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of Wisdom (James 1:5). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). Our God is the Greatest Giver (Matthew 7:7-8). The whole Earth belongs to God (Psalm 24:1). In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Solomon asked God for wisdom, King Solomon prepared to build the Temple of God, and King Solomon made an agreement with King Hiram to acquire resources and materials for the Temple, and in addition, we read about the dimensions of the materials for the Temple. As believers in God, it is always important for us to seek counsel from God (Psalm 33:11), and to seek for God’s wisdom (Proverbs 3:13). And, it is always good for us to serve God faithfully, and to love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds (Mark 11:22 and Matthew 22:37-40). Amen. God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Psalm 111:10). Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

WORDS OF JESUS:
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
