Even though the people were afraid of the local residents, they rebuilt the altar at its old site. Then they began to sacrifice burnt offerings on the altar to the Lord each morning and evening.
Good Morning Jesus,
I was so tired last night and You provided such wonderful rest for me. Thank You my King!
There are things I know You are asking me to do, Jesus, that really scare me. I’m not sure why I get so scared, maybe because it’s different or the change. I don’t like being that way, I want to follow Your calling with boldness and joy.
What encouragement You have blessed me with this morning. To see that Your children from so long ago, experienced the same fear I do today. They were afraid, but they still did what You had called them to, they rebuilt the alter. They rebuilt it and then they began to use it, sacrificing to You morning and night.
So today, whatever unfolds before me, I will hold Your hand and not be afraid, because I know You will be with me. I will take whatever step You are asking, not because I will be fearless, but because I know You’re with me. I want to please You by obeying Your call on my life. I want to shine Your light and love into this world so others will come to know You. I love You Jesus!
