CityLight Pastor Commentary:

“After the time that Amaziah turned away from following The Lord…” (2 Chron 25:27). We notice a pattern with the kings of Judah and Israel. When the word of God was prevalent, they followed after Him and prospered; but when the word of God was despised, the nations of Israel and Judah fell into ruin. We can carry that lesson into our own lives today. Do you cling to your Bible like you cling to your cell phone, never leaving home without it? Do you place a value on the word of God that honors The Lord? Do you surround yourself with men and women who sow into your life with wise Biblical counsel? Whenever our lives lack the word of God, we lack power and promise. But when we value Him above all else, we will have victory over all our enemies – even death.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for the victory Your Son Jesus Christ won on the Cross! I’m not worthy to share in the victory, but you’ve given it to me all the same. Help me to treasure Your word above everything else in my life, in Jesus’ mighty name!
