Discussion for 1 Chronicles 29

  • Jennifer Walker for verse 11
    I was looking for different words to use in my expressions of worship and gratitude to the LORD ABBA. One morning in devotion I opened the bible to this verse and my life has not been the same. Today, whenever I come under any kind of demonic attack I focus on the Greatness, Power, Glory, Victory and Majesty of CHRIST JESUS, being manifested within, through and around me and I am totally delivered. MOST HOLY YHWH ABBA, is present with us and manifests HIS might in us through HIS MOST HOLY SON YESHUA, CHRIST JESUS and HIS MOST HOLY SPIRIT WHO is at work within us. Amen.
  • Don 't know who this Rene Swopes is or the Proverbs 31 Ministries, but they 're wrong. If I were you, I would ceck out these postings before you post them. No such Chronicles 1 29 9A!
  • Child of the King for verse 2
    I saw this verse and forgot that it was in the Old Testament. Wow, God totally convicted me that the gold, silver, brass to be prepared for His House are the lost sinners who need to be brought to Christ. O Lord, help us obey!!
  • Rev Danso for verse 12
    its true that it is God who makes us riche
  • Dorothy Felix for verse 11
    I had a horrible dreams last night that if it wasn't the the name and the blood of Jesus, I believe ,I could have been killed before I woke up.
    I thank God for the few words of his power that I used to fight the prince of darkness ,but I know now that I need more of Gods words under my belt. One thing is for sure, there is power in the name of the most high God, The name of Jesus.
    Thx
