Today’s reading II Chronicles 27-30
II Chronicles 27:6 So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.
Jotham becomes mighty, established, strengthened. His position and reign become secure. Those are all things that we would seek for in our lives! The secret to all this happening for Jotham is that he prepared, established his ways before the Lord. He lived, made plans, and worked thinking in terms of God being involved in his life.
How often do you take the time to say I will seek God as I make plans for my life and business? How often do you ask the Lord what He wants you to do in your plans? How often do you prepare your life in prayer, seeking God’s wisdom and counsel, and being sure that what you are doing is better for the causes of the Lord?
We all want to be mighty or established, set but we are not willing to seek God and prepare our ways before Him.
