Blind obedience to God is powerful but guided obedience is too.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
2 Kings 23:24-25 - He did this in obedience to the laws written in the scroll that Hilkiah the priest had found in the LORD's Temple. 25 Never before had there been a king like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and soul and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses. And there has never been a king like him since.

26 year old Josiah proves to be more than just an accidental servant of God. He takes the book of the law and reads it as an instruction manual for precise obedience to God. How do you read scripture? Love letter - yes! Instruction manual - yes! Guide for salvation - yes! Power supply - yes!
Lord, You over all things including my life. Help my choices to honor You.
Read 1 Kings 13:2 to see another prophecy fulfilled!
Jesus came to Mend us by His blood sacrifice. He would be ‘The Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world’. He would be the ‘Lamb who was slain’ for us. In this singular Passover celebration, Josiah led the people to sacrifice over 40,000 animals as the nation repented of sin. Jesus’ once for all time sacrifice is greater than this! Passover was fulfilled in the blood of Christ. When we trust what Jesus has done we are covered for eternity by His precious Blood.
