DAILY READINGS: Nehemiah 10:1-11:36; Zechariah 7:1-14; Revelation 15:1-8

Behold, the king’s son shall reign, as the Lord hath said of the sons of David… 2 Chronicles 23:3

When Athaliah usurped the throne, she destroyed all of David’s descendants in an effort to wipe out the royal line. But God kept one small boy—Joash—alive and placed him on David’s throne just as “the Lord hath said.” Today the world has rejected God and His standards and set themselves up to reign in His place. But they have forgotten that God sent one little baby, born in Bethlehem—His eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Despite all this world may say, do, teach or even believe “That King shall reign.” Even so come Lord Jesus! —David Croudace

Oh, the joy to see Thee reigning—Thee my own beloved Lord!
Every tongue Thy name confessing; worship, honour, glory, blessing.
Brought to Thee with one accord—Thee my Master and my Friend. —Frances Ridley Havergal
