Humbled

Hello, God has given me something in 2 Chronicles 28:19 which says,

“The LORD had humbled Judah because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had promoted wickedness in Judah and had been most unfaithful to the LORD.”

Judah: King Ahaz was a wicked king. When the people of Damascus defeated him, he worshiped their gods, because with them, the people of Damascus had defeated Ahaz. But the gods were his downfall, and God humbled all Judah because of Ahaz’s wickedness.

Us: We are evil. We are lost in our sin, like a  lamb lost from the pasture. We are bleating for help, but the wolf has us in his sight, and is tempting us forward with green looking grass, and a smooth voice. We are surely going to be in his jaws soon.

Saved: Even though we were so close to being eaten, we weren’t. What happened? Jesus. Our good shepherd heard our bleating, and He ran to our rescue. He scoops us up into His arms and takes us safely back to the pasture. At night He lays down in the doorway, for He is the door, and He lays down His life for us. (John 10:7).

Application: How does 2 Chronicles 28:19 apply to our lives? Jesus is from the tribe of Judah. He humbled Himself, because of our sin. He humbled Himself to the point of death for us. He loves us so much, that He gave His life for us (1 John 3:16). Thank You Jesus!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving You son to die for us. Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for humbling Yourself for us, Jesus. I pray that I would draw close to You. I pray that You would strengthen me. I pray that I would run to you when I need help. I pray that I would love You more. Thank You for being there for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
