    Are You a Queen A?

    When Athaliah, the mother of King Ahaziah of Judah, learned that her son was dead, she began to destroy the rest of Judah’s royal family.” (2 Chronicles 22:10) Welcome to Faithfulness Friday!  If this is your first time here to Faithfulness Friday, let me explain. When in a tough season, one of the most beneficial things we can do is to get regular, fresh reminders of God’s faithfulness.  No matter what you are going through, no matter your faith level at this point, no matter your faithfulness to the Lord, He is faithful to you as His child.  If you are a Christian, “His child” means you. Our faithfulness study…

    The Trouble With Alliances

    Be very careful never to make a treaty with the people who live in the land where you are going.  If you do, you will follow their evil ways and be trapped. (Exodus 34:12) Welcome to Faithfulness Friday!  I’m thrilled you are here. 🙂  Today’s focus will (again!) be on chapters 17-20 of 2nd Chronicles.  You might be glad to hear that this is our final week on these chapters. Last week, in our Need for Making a List, we looked at the events in fiery orange that were against God’s directions.  Do you ever wish for a loud buzzer with bright orange, flashing lights to warn you of trouble…

    When You Need to Stop and Make a List

    Welcome to Faithfulness Friday!  Our chapters for today are the same ones from these last two weeks – 2nd Chronicles, chapters 17-20.  So rich, y’all. You may or may not be a list embracer, but sometimes I’m all about a list. When studying the Bible, listing certain things can be helpful.  After the first Faithfulness Friday post, the original plan was to move on to another book of the Bible entirely.  I’d already written the next post, which you’ll see later this month (or next – we’ll see). When publishing that first post (Your Victory Faith Song), I knew God had more for us to see before leaving those 2nd…

    Always More

    Jehoshaphat was terrified by this news and begged the Lord for guidance. He also ordered everyone in Judah to begin fasting. (2 Chronicles 20:3) Welcome to Faithfulness Friday!  If you read the chapters from last week’s post (2 Chronicles 17-20), you are good to go for today. There are so many tidbits to cover in 2 Chronicles 17-20 that I must go back and point out more.  That goes to show you . . . you can never glean every last thing from scripture.  Keep digging. There is no last thing.  There is always more. I’m so glad you are here with me, combing through scripture for examples of God’s…

    Your Victory Faith Song

    Some men came and told Jehoshaphat, “A great multitude is coming against you from Edom, from beyond the sea; and, behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar.” (2 Chronicles 20:2) Welcome to the very first Faithfulness Friday!  I’m so glad you decided to join me, and for our study today, we are examining: 2 Chronicles, chapters 17-20. For the most benefit, read these chapters first yourself.  Then return here for more specific study. When Jehoshaphat took over as King after the death of his father Asa, he fortified Judah.  The Lord blessed Jehoshaphat because he followed the example of Asa’s early years as king, obeying the Lord our God. As you read…

    Faithfulness Friday Bible Study in 2020

    In our tough seasons, we need to stand on God’s Word.  We should continually remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness to His people throughout the Bible. A little back story: The Jubilee Journey Facebook Group women and I read straight through the Bible together in 2015, and the group leaders allowed me to write a summary post for one day’s reading during each week, sometimes two. It was my first time to read through the Bible in the way that we did that year.  I’d followed other reading plans but not straight through.  I enjoyed it so much that I returned to repeat that reading plan three of the four years…
