2 Chronicles Chapter 12
5 Then came Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and to the princes of Judah, that were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Ye have forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.
7 And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he took all: he carried away also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.
13 So king Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem, and reigned: for Rehoboam was one and forty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.
15 Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, are they not written in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies? And there were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.

Just like Rehoboam we are a sin natured people,and we quickly forget Gods laws and have no relationship with God.And God is so merciful to forgive,If we ask for forgiveness and repent, Things don't get as bad as they should have been,But we need to remember Gods laws And establish a relationship with him everyday so that we can stay away from Gods wrath because sin bringth fourth DEATH!

God forgave Rehoboam because he showed remorse. This showed the kindness of God to sinners. Only repent and pledge never to regress to sin no more and the great God of Heaven is willing and ready to forgive.
