Today’s Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 26 November 2022
How quick and easy sometimes it is to forget! Joash forgets the Lord and the ideals he lived for during the lifetime of Jehoiada. What triggered this change of heart (see v.17)? Examine the conduct of the king and his officials in vs.18‐19. How did God deal with them? Like Jehoaida, God’s servants can wield immense positive influence on national leaders. We see his son, Zechariah, rising to confront the king and his officials with courage and determination. Let us pray for our religious leaders that they will play their God‐given role courageously and sacrificially.
The leaders had moved so far from the ways of the Lord that they could not withstand God’s call to repentance through Zechariah. They would rather kill him. How we need to plead for God’s mercy upon our land for all the innocent blood shed through kidnappings, armed robbery, careless driving, inter‐tribal and boundary clashes, civil wars etc. If the Lord would require the blood of Abel and others killed after him, should we expect anything less in our time?
So what? Are you a servant of God? Then raise up a Zechariah for the Lord where you are.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Pray for God’s mercy upon our land that true repentance may be experienced by all.
