Day 131 of the podcast, reading 2 Chronicles 1-4 NET, read along at:
This is day 131 of our journey.
As God establishes Solomon's reign, Solomon asks for wisdom to rule the people of God justly. God responds by blessing him with wisdom, riches, honor, and long life. At the beginning of his reign, Solomon sets out on the mission his father left for him and begins construction on the temple of the Lord. He enlists tens of thousands to work at the construction. Solomon recognizes that the temple of the Lord is not really a home for God, as God cannot be contained by a building, but rather it is a place for God's people to worship him. We see a listing of the many items created for the temple and for use in the worship of God. As Solomon sets up the two bronze pillars, he recognizes God's work as he names them Jachin and Boaz: "he establishes" "in strength".
Join me in 2 Chronicles 1-4 to see God establish Solomon in strength.
