Thurs 090326 pm Victorious Praying 1Chr 1-4

I am not sure why the Daily Walk puts 9 chapters of 1 Chronicles geneologies on the same day, but I am going to look for names I recognize and tid bits around the edges.

1 Chronicles 1
1.1 Adam, Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah, shem, Ham, and Japheth.
1.5-6 sons of Japheth.
1.8-15 sons of Ham. 1.10 Cush begot Nimrod.
1.17-28 sons of Shem
1.19 Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided I wonder what this refers to.
1.29-31 Ishmael
1.32-33 sons born to Keturah
1.34-36 sons of Issac
1.39-43 sons of Seir I wonder why it mentions Lotan's sister Timna?
1.43-54 Kings of Edom It is interesting that some of the names had "Baal" in them and that Pai's wife, Mehetabel was mentioned.

1 Chronicles 2
2.1-2 sons of Israel
2.3-16 sons of Judah The Lord killed Er. Tamar, the daughter-in-law was mentioned. In verse 7 Achar is Achan. Chelubai is Caleb in verse 9. Salma must have been quite a father to have a son of the character of Boaz. Joab was David's nephew?
2.18-24 sons of Caleb, the son of Hezron
2.25-40 sons of Jerahmeel Why was an Egyptian servant mentioned in verse 34?
2.42-55 the decendants of Caleb the brother of Jerahmeel It is curious that Caleb's concubines, Ephah & Maachah were mentioned. Who were the Natophathites? Verse 55 has a interesting mention of scribes, the Kenites, and Hammath the father of the house of Rechab.

1 Chronicles 3
3.1-9 the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron... The six wives were mentioned.
3.10-16 Solomon's decendants
3.17-24 sons of Jeconiah

1 Chronicles 4
4.1-23 sons of Judah It is noteworthy that out of the middle of nowhere we have this prayer of Jabez. I bet someone could write a book on it. :o) The "that I may not cause pain" part is especially good for us to pray. It's kind of like the doctor's "first do no harm" thing.
4.14 interesting that he mentioned craftsmen.
4.22 The records were ancient Seems kinda random.
4.24-43 I wonder why the text mentions that Shelah's brothers did not have as many children and whywas that?

A Journey to Victorious Praying by Bill Thrasher

I read "Chapter 25: Discovering God's Purposes While You Wait"
In prayer God is seeking to ...
  • get us under His loving authority.
  • get us dependent on the Spirit.
  • get us walking in the light.
  • develop a love motivation.
  • teach us to live for His glory.
Paul prayed to be able to visit Rome and ended up going as a prisoner. He was "willing to make any adjustment in his life to fulfill God's will."
