HIStory…

The books of Chronicles are pretty interesting. It features a recount of Israel’s history and it highlights the actions of the kings of Israel. For some, it highlights their love for the Lord, their victories, and challenges that they had to overcome. For others, it highlighted their evils, their struggles, and their fall and demise. Why some stories are shape a specific way and why others are not is just the way the Holy Spirit pressed upon the writer of the books.

Their stories became shaped by HIStory.

Typically, those who “did right in the eyes of Lord His God” often times had their strengths highlighted and their victories noted. Those who did not, did not.

How will your story be penned? This is an important consideration. While our stories won’t be featured in the Holy Word, our stories will be recalled as we approach our Savior. Our children and grandchildren will hear the victories and challenges, the triumphs and the trials. Just as the kings of Israel, our stories will extend beyond our lives. How will your story be told?

Did you overcome? Did you tear down the high places that tried to place themselves above the Lord? Did you fall before the Lord to praise and worship Him? Did you know the commandments? Did you live them? How will your storyteller tell your story?

Will HISTory prevail? Consider the exhortation from the Word of God:

He has a story written for you already! In His story, you are the victor! In His story, you are more than a conqueror. In His story, you are fearfully and wonderfully made! HIStory features a Savior who loved you so much that He died for you! HIStory features your purpose, your mission and His plans for your life! And when it is all over, HIStory features your eternal resting place. HIStory positions you for a powerful legacy and lasting influence.

All of our lives will be chronicled, how will yours be told?

Peace and Blessings

  1. With the gift of each new day I grow in my desire to live out, with increasing obedience, the set-apart life my Father has ordained for me. I treasure my covenant relationship with Him.

    I was encouraged by your post. Thank you.
