Purposeful & Strategic~Part One

Uzziah did right in the eyes of the Lord when he became king. 2 Chronicles 26:5 says, “He sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper.”

However, he did not finish well. His son Jotham did what was right before the Lord. In 2 Chronicles 27:6 it says, “So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God.” 

In order to prepare anything, we have to be intentional and focused on our goal. In order to press into Jesus in the face of our impossibilities, we have to be like Paul and forget what lies behind.

Ezra was a priest. His lineage came  from Aaron. Ezra came to Jerusalem with a pagan king’s  blessing. Ezra 7:6 says, “…The king granted him all  his request, according  to the hand of the Lord his God upon him.”
