Here's the scripture that stuck this week:
II Chronicles 13:10-12 The Message
10-11 "But for the rest of us in Judah, we're sticking with God. We have not traded him in for the latest model—we're keeping the tried-and-true priests of Aaron to lead us to God and the Levites to lead us in worship by sacrificing Whole-Burnt-Offerings and aromatic incense to at the daily morning and evening prayers, setting out fresh holy bread on a clean table, and lighting the lamps on the golden Lampstand every night. We continue doing what God told us to in the way he told us to do it; but you have rid yourselves of him.
12 "Can't you see the obvious? God is on our side; he's our leader. And his priests with trumpets are all ready to blow the signal to battle. O Israel—don't fight against God, the God of your ancestors. You will not win this battle."
Israel has strayed and Judah has stayed. It goes on to say that Judah won the battle "hand down" because God was on their side...or actually, they were on God's side. There's nothing wrong with God or His guidance, it's our faithfulness to Him that really affects the outcome.
What's your Word?
