Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 1 Kings 14:29
Can you imagine having every act you do chronicled? A chronicle is like a daily journal or a diary.
It’s one thing for you to write about yourself, “Dear Diary, I was awesome today! …”
It’s another thing to have someone else writing about you with your good days – AND YOUR BAD DAYS!
In the case of most rulers, their people were only allowed to mention the victories and great accomplishments with long paragraphs of praise. The losses of war and the agonies of defeat were given a mere mention.
But you don’t have a choice of how your life is written up. God is keeping a record of everything.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Cor 5:10
Your deeds will follow you – even what you say!
I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. Matt 12:36
But Jesus says,
“Behold, I make all things new.” Rev 21:5
Trusting in Him as your Lord and Savior will erase the past –
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Cor 5:17
Accept Jesus as Savior and change what is recorded about you.
Abba, thank You for Your grace and mercy that wipes away my horrid past. Thank You for the fresh start in Jesus. YES&AMEN
