Discussion for 2 Chronicles 15:7

  • We as Christains must stay in the race without wavering or ever doubting God. The Lord is and will always be faithful, remember what he told Joshua be strong and very courageous, So don 't give up, don 't give in, and more certainly don 't give out: There is one other thing I would like to leave with you: This aspect is part of your Christian walk, do not give up, be strong will, pray till you receive your miracle.
  • Tap into The Lord,s resources of strength, the power of the Holy Spirit, His Joy, meditating in His word day and night, first thing in the morning,last thing at night. Like The Lord said to the prophet , " the judgement if your work and your reward is with God " those who come to God must believe that He Is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seak Him. Weak hands come from wrong priority , submitting to the Word , His Spritu,one to another , the laws of the country, brings priorities into the right place .
  • Stephen Abrams for verse 7
    I LOVE THE LORD HE IS SO GOOD TO ME ALL THE TIME LOVE TO READ THE GOOD WORD
  • Cheryl.C for verse 7
    The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.Our flesh never wants to do what God says : The word of God is always encouraging us to go on with the Lord,for our work shall be rewarded.Submiting to God is not agreeing with God: but it is enjoying doing what He says. Joy unspeakable and full of glory. Thank You Jesus for the Strength and willingness for obeying you.
