2 Chronicles 22:12–He remained hidden with them at the temple of God for six years while Athaliah ruled the land.
The kingdom of Judah was in the midst of evil kings and in this case, an evil queen. She tried to kill all the true heirs to the throne, all the descendants of David. Yet, God made a way to protect and to hide young Joash. He was hidden in the temple of God, a place that evil queen probably rarely went. God had promised that a descendant of David’s would always be on the throne and God kept His promise by saving Joash. Do we trust God to keep His promises? Do we wait on God to bring about His plan even when it takes years?
Father, You are in control of everything and even more than that, You are trustworthy and hold true to Your promises. I will trust You and hold on to Your promises, even if it takes years.
