Theme For Joel Osteen Daily Devotional November 26 2022 – When You Feel Hidden Away
2 Kings 11:3, NLT
Joash remained hidden in the Temple of the LORD for six years while Athaliah ruled over the land.
In 2 Kings 11, after the death of King Ahaziah, his infant son, Joash, was hidden away by his aunt for six years when Joash’s grandmother, Athaliah, killed all the other royal heirs to the throne. Athaliah reigned over Judah with great wickedness for those six years, while Jehoiada the priest plotted her eventual overthrow and prepared the way for Joash to become the king. As king, Joash repaired the temple and restored the true worship to Jehovah.
There are seasons when God has you hidden. You’re in a time of protection, of preparation, of training. God is getting you ready for what He has in store. If you keep doing the right thing, you’ll come into a time where God will cause you to be seen. Promotion doesn’t come from people; it comes from the Lord. When it’s your time, no person, no bad break, and no injustice can stop you. Just as God hid you, He will bring you out, shine His light on you, and bring favor, increase, and promotion like you’ve never dreamed.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the seasons when You hide me and cause me to be overlooked, keeping doors closed. Thank You that You love me so much that You’re getting me prepared for the next good thing You have for me. Help me to always be faithful to You and pass the test. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
