Please see below the passages I copied today:
I have been stuck to write and record this blog/podcast for exactly one month. The reason is that I suddenly aware that for the past seven years since I started my blog in July 2009 I was giving "fast food" to people! Ten minutes of daily devotion is not enough for you to have a quality and intimate time with the Lord!
So, I start with this blog/podcast to invite you to read all the four passages. The best is to follow the way of Time with Abba, to copy all verses from Psalm and Proverbs, then read all verses of the Old and New Testament passages and copy those few verses that touch your heart and soul.
A month ago when we were reading how King Saul missed his last chance after God spoke and warned him, and he died. Same situation happened to King Solomon as record in 1 Kings 11:9-13. God gave him the last chance warning but he did not repent! Then, God sent King Edom and King Aram to attack him, also Solomon's own servant Jeroboam attacked him and took ten tribes from Solomon to establish the nation Israel.
In today's passage, after many years, King Ahab is even worse than King Solomon. Almost same situation happened to King Ahab that God declared destruction to Ahab, but Ahab grasped his last chance, repented, did a humble fasting and praying and God gave him a second chance!
In today's Acts passage we can see the power of fasting is not only a way to plead for God's mercy and forgiveness as how King Ahab did. It is also a way to receive a new direction from the Holy Spirit as Barnabas, Saul, John Mark and disciples in the church at Antioch were fasting and praying. It is recorded in today's passage Acts 13:2 that the Holy Spirit gave them a new call to send Barnabas and Saul together to start a new mission, Paul's first missionary journey!
How often do you fast? When was the last time God gives you a second chance? How do you know if that is your last chance? Actually, you'll never know if that is your last chance!
So, rise up, worship God and not worship idols any more!
2. How can you not miss God's last chance and help those who God prepares for you not to miss their last chance?
