Never before or since!

Do you ever look around at our leaders at all levels and wonder how they feel deep down inside? What makes them tick or who or what do they serve?

I think of it a the verse that really hit home today was one on absolute obedience that Josiah had for the Lord...In 2 Kings 23 it tells us that never before had there been a king like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and soul and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses. And there has never been a king like him since. Isn't that a nice thing to be said about Josiah?

What about us? What will be said about our leaders or each of us? Oh think about it...Wow, that girl knows how to make a mean casserole, that lady knows how to put an outfit that hairstyle is to die for or what about her figure I would kill for that...shouldn't all of be longing to be more like Josiah rather than the other lady that might have a look or outfit?

Well in closing today I pray that all of us will want to be obedient to Our Father and what He wants with each of us we will respond to His mighty plans for us. We will turn with all our hearts, soul, and strength to serve Our Savior and make a difference for Him. Again, let's be contagious for Jesus!!!

Debbie, I love the example that King Josiah is for us of doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord. That whole story of how the Book of the Covenant was discovered "hidden" away in the Temple of the Lord for so many years, reminds me of how we may have a Bible in our home that may just be sitting on a shelf, in a drawer or in a closet waiting to be dusted off and opened up. Not only that, but perhaps worse is, do I have the Bible open and still not follow its instructions. Praying that I desire to do what is right in the Lord's eyes today.
