II Chronicles 17

“And they taught in Judah, having the Book of the Law of the LORD with them. They went about through all the cities of Judah and taught among the people” (v9). Jehoshaphat’s reign was remarkable because he used his power to spread the knowledge of God’s word. Judah’s Levites and priests were not only active in the Temple; they went throughout the land and taught “among the people.” Jehoshaphat tore down idols in the land and “sought the God of his fathers and walked in his commandments” (v4).

“His heart was courageous in the ways of the Lord” (v6). Jehoshaphat didn’t just believe, he acted. Faith united with courage makes us willing to obey God.
