S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Kings 15:14b Asa’s heart was fully committed to the Lord all his life. O-bservation: Here we see that King Asa determines in his heart that he would be “Fully Committed” to God all the days of his life.

This displeased the Lord, and God let him know that His eyes are always watching for those who are totally committed to Him. A-pplication: Has there ever been a time...

O-bservation: From the time Jehoshaphat took over as king of Judah from his Father Asa, there was victory in Judah. Scripture says the reason for the victory was, "The Lord was with him because he walked in the ways of his forefather David, and he didn't serve foreign gods but only the God of Israel." Yes there were issues in Jehoshaphat's life, but at the end of his life there was PEACE in...
