Today’s reading: 2 Kings 14:23-29
Jeroboam II takes the helm as king of Israel after the death of his father, Joash. Although we’re told that Jeroboam II reigned for forty-one years (a long time), we’re not given many details or specifics about what he did or events that took place during his reign. We are told, however, that “he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord” (vs. 24), like so many of the kings before him.
As I took in and considered this passage, it wasn’t so much Jeroboam II, but God’s plan and how He accomplishes His purpose, that stood out to me. The way God used Jeroboam II even though he didn’t follow God served as reminder to me that God can and does use whomever He chooses to achieve and complete His plan.
