#LA2Kings Devotional Day 17 by Blessing Okoro (@blessingshares)



‘Seven years old was Jehoash when he began to reign.‘ 2 Kings 11:21

We have an exceptional Leader in the house today, King Jehoash! It is incredible that he was only ‘seven’ years old when he became a Leader. The scriptural foundation for any youth regarding leadership is laid in this verse,  ‘And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.’ 2 Timothy 3:15

Reading through the first Chapter of today’s verses, there is an understanding that no one (Athaliah) could hinder the plans God had for Jehoash. This is the same testimony we have as Children of God – the counsel of the Lord concerning our lives shall surely stand and He will do His good pleasure.

During his reign, Jehoash navigated the temple repairs, he understood how to get the job done and the strength of ‘youthfulness’ remains a blessing.

God can use anyone irrespective of their age. Once the youthful foundation is rooted in God, godly leadership abilities will always manifest.

Prayer focus
Thank you Lord for Your great plans for my life. Give unto me the youthful strength needed for destiny fulfilment, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
