Scripture: 2Chronicles (NIV) 23:16 Jehoiada thenmade a covenant that he and the people and the king would be the LORD's people.

Observation:  Jehoiada was the high priest who providedleadership for the nation.  He workedbehind the scenes and when the time came, he brought about open change.  His efforts brought about a change in thepolitical leadership.  He caused thedownfall of a wicked queen who had usurped the throne.  He worked to save the life of the true king.  He planned and initiated political changethat re-established the rightful king. He led by godly influence.  He didnot step into a place of political authority, but worked to ensure the true king,King Joash, was established in authority.  

Application: God is today looking for Godly leaderswho will use their influence to bring change to their nation.  God is looking for Godly leaders who willtake a risk.  God is looking for Godlyleaders who will stand against wickedness. God can use those leaders, like Jehoiada, to bring change. 

Prayer:  Lord, use me to herald your truth"to speakagainst wickedness and call people to righteousness.  Use me for your glory!  Amen
