Godly Influence

Dear One, what changes when you read my word? King Josiah was a righteous man. He found the law of Moses while restoring my temple. He read it and realised that his generation had been disobedient, so he wept and humbly repented. He could have stopped at this, but instead he sought my counsel for all those in his sphere of authority. Even though their sin still had consequences, he continued changing the environment and atmosphere to make it pleasing to me. He read my words to all those he had God-given authority over, causing them to come into covenant relationship with me. He removed the priests, altars, idols and emblems of other gods. 

Beloved, consider your sphere of influence. People in it may choose not to follow me, but will you still seek my heart for them?  If they don’t know my ways yet, will you show them? If there are items you know do not please me, will you remove them? Today I want to remind you that your God-given influence is greater than you realise!

Activation: With a piece of paper, take a moment with Holy Spirit and ask Him to show you your sphere of influence. This may include roles at home, work, church or in your community. Write each role down and and ask God for insight as to how you can steward these areas well. Ask Him for an understanding of what your specific assignment is for each area of influence.

2 Chronicles 34:2 (NIV)

He (Josiah) did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and followed the ways of his father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left.

Matthew 5: 16 (NIV)

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
