DAY 661 - Why Wait Until You Are in Big Trouble?

(There is a major mulfunction in and I have to use the simplest way to write my blog from today(June 11)until it is being fixed.)

NIV: Chronicles 33&version=NIV
ESV: Chronicles 33&version=ESV
Message: Chronicles 33&version=MSG
Chinese: Chronicles 33&version=CUV

The Lord spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attetion. So the Lord brought against them the army commanders of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh prisoner, put a hook in his nose, bound him with bronze shackles and took him to Babylon. In his distress he sought the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. And when he prayed to him, the Lord was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea: so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Thgen Manasseh knew that the Lord is God.
2 Chronicles 33: 10-13

Thanks to your prayer I am home safely from London! It was surely a powerful, blessed and anointed week for the four of us!

Well, what I got from our Lord Jesus Christ is: Why wait until you are in big trouble? Why?

When his father Hezekiah died, King Manasseh was only 12. What do you expect from a child of only 12 to be king? He "undo" all his fathers good deed and everything went downhill. Could a 12 years old did that? No, it must be his mentors' influence.

This chapter recorded two times "how God warned him through prophets and how he repented and God gave him a second chance. Then he did every good things his father did. Seems funny but sad!

Verse 13 "Then Manasseh knew that the Lord is God." is the KEY of the BIG "Transition".

So, do you know that the Lord is God? If so, how can this experience reflects the way you live daily?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be very sure that you are our King, our Lord, our God and our Savior. Without you we can do nothing. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
