I recently finished questions for reflection 2 Chronicles 1-5. The study has inspired a poem at this link: Stepping Stones. The next part of the travel will take me to 2 Chronicles 6-10. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting about the journey and will use the questions below in my time of reflection on each passage.
2 Chronicles 6
What is Solomon’s main request? According to Solomon’s prayer, what precedes God’s forgiveness of sin? Read ahead to 2 Chronicles 7:1-3. What two immediate events follow Solomon’s prayer?
2 Chronicles 7
What is the effect of the ceremonies and feasting for the dedication of the temple upon the people who were there? What do you learn about God’s character from his words to Solomon in verses 12-22? What promises does God make concerning Israel and her worship of him?
2 Chronicles 8
What are Solomon’s priorities as king as shown by the order in verses 1-2? In what areas of your life do you need to develop consistency? What are your priorities?
2 Chronicles 9:1-12
What does the queen of Sheba want to know about Solomon? To what does the queen attribute the things she sees in Israel? In your own mind, and in the view of others, who gets the credit for the good things and accomplishments in your life?
2 Chronicles 9:13-31
How does Solomon use God’s gift of wisdom? List the gifts God has given you. How are you using them?
2 Chronicles 10
See 1 Kings 11:14-43 and write a short description of the opposition which arises toward the end of Solomon’s reign. From whom does King Rehoboam seek advice, and what answers does he receive? What glimpse is given here of the ongoing purposes of God? What parallels have you seen in your own experience?
The above reading plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
