Heart for God
 
Today's reading: 2 Chronicles 29:3-11
 
Before we continue on with the account of king Hezekiah in 2 Kings, we’re going to spend a couple of days in 2 Chronicles where we’ll find some additional details about this godly man’s thinking, living and actions.
 
Almost immediately upon stepping into the role of king of Judah, Hezekiah turns his efforts to refurbishing the temple, and in so doing, refocusing the people on serving and worshipping God. My favorite part of our passage for today is found in verses 10 and 11 where Hezekiah tells the people that it is his heart (his desire) to make a covenant with the Lord (vs. 10) and then he charges the priests and Levites to be diligent in their service (vs. 11).
 
How would you describe your heart with regard to your relationship with God? Is it your desire to serve and worship Him? On a scale of 1 to 10, where would you say you’d land when it comes to being diligent in following after God and His ways? Tami
