Bible Reading: 2 Kings 16-17; 2 Chronicles 28

Scripture

In one day Pekah son of Remaliah killed a hundred and twenty thousand soldiers in Judah—because Judah had forsaken the LORD, the God of their ancestors. (2 Chronicles 28:6)

Observation

One man killed 120,000 soldiers in one day! Wow!!! How is it that Pekah is virtually unknown? He was Israel’s king, but still!

Application

Don’t forsake the LORD. You never know how God will punish those that abandon Him. It’s hard to imagine 120,000 soldiers dying in one day, much less due to one man.

Prayer

LORD, page after page of the Old Testament reminds us of the consequences of following or forsaking You. Our nation has certainly forsaken You. LORD have mercy. Draw us back to You, however You choose. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
