During the eighth year of his reign, while he was still young, Josiah began to seek the God of his ancestor David. Then in the twelfth year he began to purify Judah and Jerusalem, destroying all the pagan shrines, the Asherah poles, and the carved idols and cast images.
Good Morning Yahweh,
Your timing is so completely perfect and wonderful. You know when I need encouragement and Your Word gives it. You know all my needs for this day and have already provided for them. How great You are.
Your Word this morning, Father, reminds me that walking with You is a lifetime education. As Josiah did, I need to sit at Your feet and learn from You. I need to be in Your Word as often as possible since I don’t have the capacity to remember. You tell me the same story over so I can learn and understand.
Josiah sat for Your teachings, and then You moved Him to action. It wasn’t done in a day or a week, it took time. I’m not always willing to work so slowly and then again, it seems like sometimes I’m not willing to work that fast.
So, Abba, I need Your Spirit to guide me. I want You to teach me, as I can’t do this or understand it on my own. Most importantly, I need You to move me into action at Your perfect timing.
I ask this, Father, so I may glorify You, that I may be the vessel You shape and mold to please You. I am so humbled and honored to be Your child!
I love You!
