1 Chronicles 1-9
1 Chronicles is not only a genealogy of the families of the Israelites but also a political history and a history of the peoples religion.
Key Verse: 1 Chronicles 4:9-10
Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. . .Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory, let your hand be with me and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain. And God granted his request.
How does it change my vision about God:
Reminds us that God answers the prayers of the honorable. Also that God was in control of history just as He is still in control of what happens today!
How does it change my vision about myself or others:
I am reminded that I can please God by living honorably and to inspire those around me to do the same!
How will I go with God:
I will seek Gods guidance and wisdom in the choices I make and thee way I live my life.
Where is Jesus?
JESUS IS EVERYWHERE!!! These genealogies lead us to down the line of the Israelites which eventually take us right to Jesus!!
