A Little Child To Lead Them

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Kings 22:1a Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years.

No Ordinary Child

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Hebrews 11:23 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. O-bservation: The Pharaoh of Egypt had put out an edict at the time of Moses' birth that all Hebrew boys under the age of eighteen months must be slaughtered. Moses, as a newborn Hebrew baby, should have been one of the first to die. BUT, his parents saw he was "No Ordinary Child." His life was spared, and in time God promoted...
