Enquire of the LORD

“Go ye, enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.” 2 Kings 22:13 (KJV)

The words of God’s book is the word of God. The most important book ever penned down by the hands of men; and sadly it is the most rejected book. Though it was written down by the hands of men the word of God is the verbally inspired, inerrant, and infallible word.

Josiah, the youngest king of Judah to begin ruling, saw the importance of the word of God. It is said of Josiah that “he did right in the sight of the LORD”; and that was due to his reverence, trust, and faith in God and His word.

Upon hearing the word of God Josiah took action. It would have first been upon his own heart and life. The first place of action for us today is to hear the word of God; then to act upon it.

We are sinners according to the word of God (Romans 3:23), and we need a Saviour if we are to be in fellowship with God, and that is Jesus Christ Son of God, and God the Son.

Turn to God, to His word, and to His Son.

  1. When I was pregnant with our first child, God laid on our hearts to name him Josiah. At four, he accepted Jesus. At eight, he was baptized and preached his first sermon. He is twenty now, a student at Liberty University, majoring in music and missions. He has been to Thailand and Romania, and has spent this summer sharing God’s Word at churches in our area. I have often prayed that he would have that same spirit that King Josiah had: a fire in his heart for the Word of the Lord. Wouldn’t it be great if we all heard God’s Word and took action! 🙂
