Abijam

Today's reading: 1 Kings 15:1-7

Rehoboam's son, Abijam or Abijah (see 2 Chronicles 13) takes over as king of Judah after Rehoboam's death. Like his father, he did not wholeheartedly follow God. However, he didn't turn completely away from God (like Jeroboam who was ruling over Israel). But it wasn’t Abijam's actions and choices that caught my attention today. It's what we're told about God in verses 4 and 5 that stood out to me. What an awesome God we serve.

What did this passage show you about God and His character? What message does it send about serving and following God with all our hearts? Tami

P.S. For a more detailed account of Abijam (Abijah) turn to 2 Chronicles 13. It’s a good read.
