A reminder for today
Joash was seven years old when he became king. (2 Kings 11:21)
Wow, at the age a seven this little boy became a king. We live in a time where there is so much pressure on children and they are burdened with huge amounts of homework from school, plus they have their normal sport activities. So in a child’s day they have a huge amount to do and often are very tired. I have seen my son on numerous accounts fall asleep on the couch in front of the television. When I read this verse, I thought it is quite a large responsibility on such tiny shoulders. This little boy was hidden away so that he was not killed and later crowned as king.
My dear friend, two things are on my mind today. One is to remind you that your life has a purpose and God has already set things in motion so that you can reach that purpose. From the day you were born your life has already been planned and put into place by God and He needs you to live your life for Him so that you can become the person that God needs you to be. This requires obedience and patience and time and you will have to commit to that. Secondly I want to focus your eyes on differences. Each king that we read about in the second book of kings had specific differences and this made each one of them unique. God has made us each unique in our own way with gifts and talents that makes us who we are. From a long line of people your DNA structure has been added together to from the person who you are and this uniqueness is what makes you so important in the kingdom of God. God did not make robots, He made people with their own abilities and talents and each one of us should respect the differences in each other, because what makes you unique is something I do not have. And God needs you to be that person. Live your life for Jesus and become the unique person that you are designed to be and live my dear friend, live each moment and let us not lose a single opportunity to be Jesus people.
"I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5)
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
