DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Choose To Walk In God’s Commandment
2 Chro. 17:1-6
The statutes of God are the rules He has given to enable us walk steadfastly with Him. Anybody that walks in God’s commandments will surely prosper. When Jehoshaphat became king of Judah, he did not follow the evil ways, rather he sought God. He walked in the way of David (v. 3) who was a reference point of the kings of Israel. He also destroyed all the idols. Jehoshaphat found favour in the sight of God and his kingdom was established for him. God will establish you too if only you will make up your mind to walk in obedience to His commandments. His rules and laws are not burdensome; they are to keep you in the right track, even with abundant reward. You will never be disappointed that you do so.
Point of Emphasis: God’s rules and laws are not burdensome.
Prayer Point: O Lord God, give me the heart of obedience to Your commandments
