Indeed better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof. Amen.
Today’s scripture provides the perfect ending of 2 Kings, the diverse leaders we have studied throughout the #LAKings season have shown various qualities and lessons.
The story of Jehoiachin is exceptional, it depicts effortless favour. Yes! Most of the #LAKing leaders have epitomised wisdom, vision and accountability among other ‘conscious’ leadership qualities.
Jehoiachin is exceptional because it was not his skills, nor his acts or omissions that gave him the promotion from the prison to the palace, it was simply ‘Divine favour’.
‘For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.’ Psalm 75:6
Every Child of God, as a Spiritual leader, has been called to live in this exceptional way. In these days of unrest and turpsy-turvy, God has promised to keep and bless His Children. We are the exceptions to the deaths and hardships that plague the nations.
So many people died in the days of Jehoiachin due to the captivity of Judah but he was spared. Today and beyond may we go on enjoying this exceptional favour, Amen.
Thank you Lord for your favour upon my life so far. May You continually make me a favoured exception all the days of my life and may I continually eat the good of the land, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
