A WISE MENTOR

A WISE MENTOR

A WISE MENTOR

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: FRIDAY, APRIL 16 2021

TOPIC: A WISE MENTOR

DEVOTIONAL READING: 2 CHRONICLES 24.

KEY VERSE: And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God, and toward his house. (2 Chronicles 24:16)

BIBLE CHARACTER: JEHOIADA

Jehoiada the priest helped to save the life of Josah, the only survivor of an attempt to wipe out the male descendants of King David. He then became the child-king’s mentor.

Six years later, Jehoiada organized the coup that removed Athaliah from the throne and replaced her with the rightful king. Joash took the throne at age seven and reigned forty years. Jehoiada acted as a chief counselor to the king during many of those years.

He and Joash led a significant renewal of the nation. The temple of Baal was destroyed, and GOD’s temple in Jerusalem was gradually renovated. Although Jehoiada was honored when he died, his memory faded as the king’s judgment waned. Jehoiada provided Joash with helpful counsel, but he couldn’t compensate for the king’s lack of internal stability. Joash was usually swayed by the latest counselor who had his ear.

Even the best advice must be received and followed if it is to be effective. Parents, teachers, and friends should remember that the wisdom they share can’t be forced on another person. Your responsibility is to present truth and warn of the consequences of disobedience. Others just choose to follow.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Give Your Best Advice, And Trust God To Do The Rest.

FURTHER READING: Jehoiada’s ministry is recorded in 2 Kings 11:4-12:3 and 2 Chronicles 22:10-24:22.

PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS:

  1. My father, connect and surround me with wise counselors in Jesus Name.
  2. O God, give me grace to discern and take heed to wise counsel in Jesus Name.
  3. Evil counselors, gathered against my life, scatter by fire in the Name of Jesus.
  4. My father, deliver me from error in Jesus Name. Amen!

Be Lifted!
