Hello friends. Happy Saturday!

🎙️ Behind the Breakdown Recap

This week's Bible reading was rough. There are so many moments where I want to jump into the pages of Scripture and shake people. ha! Then, I remember that I fall into the same traps as they do. I'm so thankful that God is as patient with us as He is with the people in the Scriptures.

🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>

📚 Scripture. 💪

(2 Chronicles 26:16 NLT) “But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the Lord his God by entering the sanctuary of the Lord’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar.”

Observation: As a pastor, I have been honored to walk with people through many different seasons of life. One of the saddest things I have seen is people who go from hard to easy. During life's most challenging seasons, people often humble themselves and walk closely with the Lord. It is beautiful to watch their faith and trust in the Lord. Then, when God comes through and things get more accessible, it is so sad to watch how quickly people begin to forget who brought them out. They begin to walk away from God and celebrate their success by “taking a break” from God. We have to remember never to do this. Often, walking away from God creates the hard times that humble us. Don’t get me wrong, not all bad times result from us doing something wrong. Sometimes, bad times result from living in a fallen world. However, let’s always be sure never to let success cause us to forget the author of every victory. All victory belongs to the Lord.  

Application: In seasons of success, celebrate God's faithfulness just as we did in seasons of trouble.

Prayer: Thank You for never changing. You are always faithful in all things.

✍️ Quote of the Week That Makes You Think

There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors. This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn. We must play. But our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously - no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption. ~ C.S. Lewis
