DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Know Your God
2 Chro. 24:1-5
Joash was seven years old when he became king. Through the influence of Jehoiada the priest who happened to be his spiritual mentor, he was able to do great things. However after Jehoiada’s death, he backslided and became evil. Verse 5 gives us a glimpse into the sole reason for his failure: he did not have personal touch with God. Without deep conviction of our calling and the personal touch of God in our lives, we will soon expire and perform woefully, but with clear vision of the purpose for our calling, our success is sure and certain.
Point of Emphasis: Be sure of your calling and be a friend of God.
Prayer Point: Lord, give me the grace to see you more clearly, love You more dearly follow You more nearly day by day.
