April 1, 2022 - 2 Chronicles 7-10

“King Solomon excelled all the kings of the earth in riches” (9:22). However, wealth and riches (and, oh my, Solomon had those!) are not the greatest blessings one might have; rather, to know God’s favor and forgiveness. And so, the Chronicler reports: “The Lord appeared to Solomon in the night and said to him: ‘I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place.’” (7:12-15).


What blessing to know, when we turn to him, that God’s ears are attentive to our prayers!


Pass me not, O gentle Savior,

Hear my humble cry,

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.

Savior, Savior,

Hear my humble cry;

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by. -- Fanny Crosby (1868)
