Are you ready? What’s the best time for you to read? For me, it’s in the morning, first things first – but I have to admit: I’m a MAJOR morning person! Do what works for YOU – the true key is being consistent! Let’s read Zephaniah 2:8-15, Zephaniah 3, 2 Chronicles 35:20-27, 2 Kings 23:29-30, Jeremiah 47, and Jeremiah 48.
“Yet GOD remains righteous in her midst, untouched by the evil. He stays at it, day after day, meting out justice” (Zeph. 3:5 MSG)
No matter what people do, God remains a righteous judge – that’s a comfort. Let’s say it another way: no matter what I do, God remains. No matter what you do, God remains. You can’t do anything to make Him love you more, and you can’t do anything to make Him love you less: God remains, and your best is always in His heart.
Sad to see Josiah go. We don’t have time in these few minutes to go into a lot of Bible history (sadly! I do love a history lesson!), but the Battle of Megiddo was significant. After Necco kills Josiah, Judah (remember the kingdom has been split by this point, while Solomon’s son Rehoboam reigned) falls under Egyptian control. We’ll meet a new king soon.
