Chapter-a-Day 2 Chronicles 29

“Children, don’t drag your feet in this! God has chosen you to take your place before him to serve in conducting and leading worship—this is your life work; make sure you do it and do it well.” 2 Chronicles 29:11 (MSG)

I was at rehearsal last night for our community theater’s production of Annie. It felt great to be rehearsing. I love it. I’ve been involved on stage most of my life. I was trained in theater all through junior high, high school and college. Then, I didn’t step foot on stage for sixteen years.

There is something inside you that is always out of sorts when you aren’t doing what you’re gifted and called to do.

The people Hezekiah assembled before him were the men of the tribe of Levi, who were given responsibility for overseeing the temple and leading in worship. Everything in the nation was out of sorts. They hadn’t been doing what they’d been called upon to do, and until the Levites did their appointed work, and did it well, no one was going to experience the blessing of worship.

Do what you are gifted, called and given to do. Do it well.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day 2 Chronicles 29”

  1. In God’s opinion he was a good king; AND 36 Hezekiah and the congregation celebrated: God had established a firm foundation for the lives of the people—and so quickly!

    We don’t think of God having an opinion very often. I liked that phrase. I also liked the emphasis of the last verse of this chapter on how God can establish a firm foundation so quickly. We always want to cram God into our box and our timelines, so much so, that we have a hard time believing that God can do anything quicker than we would plan. I’m guilty. I needed this reminder today that God can do more than we could ever imagine…and much quicker too!
