2 Chronicles 15:7

12/17/2018

"But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded."

At the time, there was many wars and great distress in the land;

"But in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them." - 2 Chronicles 15:4

But when this verse was given, to be strong and not give up and the Lord will reward you, they took a national oath to the Lord.

"They took an oath to the LORD with loud acclamation, with shouting and with trumpets and horns." - 2 Chronicles 15:14

And because of this, the Lord rewarded them with peace.

"All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly. They sought God eagerly, and he was found by them. So the LORD gave them rest on every side." - 2 Chronicles 15:19.

They sought God eagerly and they found Him and he rewarded them. This is what the Lord does every time we seek him. He is consistent, every time with every people.

The knowledge of the Lords is what leads people to seek the Lord and the result is the Lord's reward. It begins when we believe in the Lord, then study his words and gain the knowledge of the Lord.
