I Chronicles 1-2 Chronicles was compiled at the end of the exile which was much later in history. Its purpose was to give a theology of revival that the people needed as they returned to the land. These two chapters begin the extensive genealogical list of the tribes of Israel. We will punctuate the reading of this with looking at a number of the Psalms every other day. Why would a sense of “roots” like we gain from these lists be important to the exiles as they returned to the land?

Biblical Prayer Focus
Psalm 54:1-3 “O God, save me by your name, and vindicate me by your might. O God hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth. For strangers have risen against me; ruthless men seek my life; they do not set God before themselves. Selah”
Whether our enemies are people we know or the spiritual forces of darkness, we need to give the battle to God in prayer. Ask the Lord to show His might on your behalf and for those who you are praying. Ask that He would make clear if you are not “on His side” so that you can change quickly.
