Discipleship: Chronicles through Job (Part 2 of 5)

what-it-means-to-be-a-disciple-of-jesus-2_t_nvThe more that I read through the Bible the more the more I realize that it is reading me instead of me reading it.  There is a wealth of information in this great book and the Holy Spirit truly inspired the writing of this great manual.  Application from stewardship to living to contentment and so much more is find within these pages.  One thing to note, each time you read the Bible, pray that God will continue to reveal His truth for you and what He wants you to glean form this reading.  Pray for wisdom and understanding and take notes on what you read and what thoughts come to you.  When you feel conviction (journal) and when you learn something new, make a note in the margin.  Often, when you journal and re-read it is amazing how the Spirit works in each one of us to build His Kingdom.  Remember:  Less of me, more of God. In Chronicles we learn to:

Be thankful, Sing Praises to God and Tell of His Good Name (share the Gospel) - 1 Chronicles 16:8-10

God will strengthen you when you are fully committed to Him - 2 Chronicles 16:9

Stand for Truth, Integrity and Justice - The Book of Nehemiah

God is in control, so don't be afraid to step out in faith for Him - The Book of Esther

God sees it all - Job 7:17-19

How to live each day - The Book of Job

How to gain wisdom understanding:  Job 28:28
