Today’s passage is 2 Chronicles 26:1-15. Let’s go!
2 Chronicles 26:5 (NIV)
5 He sought God during the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God. As long as he sought the LORD, God gave him success.
On verses 1-5: Uzziah, also known as Azariah, becomes king of Judah in place of his father Amaziah. Here in these verses we see Uzziah at the prime of his reign as king. It’s no coincidence that the period of time when Uzziah was at his best was the period of time when Uzziah was seeking the Lord and remaining teachable toward his pastor Zechariah (v5). What can we learn from this? You are at your best and your strongest when you seek the Lord and have a teachable attitude toward your God-given leaders.
2 Chronicles 26:10 (NIV)
10 He also built towers in the desert and dug many cisterns, because he had much livestock in the foothills and in the plain. He had people working his fields and vineyards in the hills and in the fertile lands, for he loved the soil.
