II Chronicles 10-12
Rehoboam takes over for Solomon and leads in evil ways. It is interesting that Rehoboam returns to God only after being disciplined by the King of Egypt, Shishak. How many times do we walk away from God only to return to Him when things get tough or we feel the pressure from outside. It is much better to stay focused on Christ daily then to have to return to Him after a time of discipline. The prodigal son returned after squandering his money in a foreign land. If today you have walked away from God, he is ready to receive you back. If you are walking with the Lord now, then keep on walking with Him.
