2 Kings 22:19–“because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants that they should become a devastation and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before Me, I truly have heard you,” declares the Lord.
When we hear God’s Word, how is it received? Does it find a place of tenderness and humility within us in order to work and guide us? Or, are we proud and hard-hearted and unwilling to receive and accept it?
Lord, I want my heart to be like Josiah’s, tender and humble and open to all that You want to tell me. I pray You will speak to me for I am open to hear from You.
