Called by HIM

Updated: Aug 19, 2020

2 Kings 22:19 " Because you were responsible and humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I have spoken against this place and it's people--that they would become a curse and be laid waste-- and because you tore your robes and wept in my presence, I also have heard you, declares the LORD." John 6: 9 "Here is a boy with 5 small barley loaves and 2 small fish, but how far will they go among so many?" Josiah became king at the age of 8. His predecessors were men who were known for turning their back to GOD and leading the people of Judah towards the precipice of destruction. When he was 26, the book of the law was re-discovered and when he heard he tore his robes . Tore them out of shame. GOD had called HIS people for so much more but they had become mired in their sin. Josiah did not stop there and sent for priests and prophets to inquire of the LORD to know what to do next. And GOD responded and rewarded his faith in action. GOD saw past the age of the young king. HE saw his heart and humility. GOD didn't question whether Josiah would be good enough to use to reconcile a nation. That's where my eyes often go.I'm no where near a king so why would GOD use me? GOD is more than aware of my limitations. HE is aware of my lack of consistency and general powerlessness. HE knows that in my own strength I am capable of very little. That’s why HE allows me to come to HIM. When Josiah hears what he should be doing - his heart changes. That’s that response that GOD can use and magnify. That little boy in the crowd of tens of thousands of people gave whatever inconsequential amount of food he had. GOD's asking us to come to HIM as is. To know our place before HIM. That’s the response HE expects and can ultimately use. This is the crux of this blog. A place where I can come before GOD humbled and inquiring HIM what HE wants out of my life. GOD is asking for my 5 loaves and 2 fish. I do not want to be deaf to his calling. I do not want to be afraid to move. This blog will serve as a reflection of that journey.
