STAY WITH ME. Athaliah, the only non-Davidic ruler in Judah’s history, was queen during a six year reign of terror. She was the daughter of wicked Ahab and Jezebel, and married Jehoram, the son of Judah’s king Jehoshaphat (Jehoshaphat made peace with Israel when Judah and Israel were divided.) King Ahaziah, the only son of Athaliah, was killed during Jehu’s purge of wicked Ahab’s house.
Athaliah mounted Judah’s throne and attempted to purge it of all David’s descendants, including her own grandsons. The wife of the high priest hid the infant son and preserved the Davidic lineage. Why is this important? This act was God ordained because God keeps covenant. Remember God’s words to David, “And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.” ’ ”” II Samuel 7:16 From David’s line would come Messiah.
What does this mean to you? God watches over His Word to perform it. No enemy and certainly no devil can kill what God has spoken. No man can kill the vision God gave you. God’s hands protect His Word. You don’t have to fear what man does. When all seems lost and hopeless, fear not! God always makes a way. If He said it, He will accomplish it. Just as Jesus stood by Paul telling him, “You must go to Rome”; Jesus made the way for Paul to go to Rome. Stand in awe and watch Him move. He (not you) will bring all things to pass, just as He said He would. #runyourrace
