Healthy Childhood But – – –

A4P Guest: I am a born again Christian man. I am 22 years old, a senior in one of Universities in Ethiopia. I lead a Christian fellowship in campus. I’ve been following you, probably, since day one. I grew up in church and I don’t exactly know when I came to Christ. The only thing I am sure of is that I am in Christ, not in the world. I have devoted Christian families.

“Shishak” is Sent By God

This morning I read 2 Chronicles 12 and you have no idea how this chapter spoke to my heart.
 
Look at this verse:
 
“Then the prophet Shemaiah came to Rehoboam [the King of Judah, he is King Solomon’s son] and to the leaders of Judah who had assembled in Jerusalem for fear of Shishak, and he said to them, “This is what the Lord says, ‘You have abandoned me; therefore, I now abandon you to Shishak.’”” Verse 5
 
You know, when God takes us as His own, He means serious business.
