Read 2 Kings 9-11, 2 Chronicles 22:10-12, 23
It’s a massive turn around of leaders. JEHU is toppling the house of Ahab and God’s word is being executed swiftly. How many were praying GOD TURN IT AROUND, and he does.
Consider the importance of the young unnamed prophet who will anoint JEHU the next KING. Generation are many of us willing to be like the unnamed young prophet full of courage without any specific credit?
Delay is not denial. Even when the remaining Queen Mother full of evil intent manipulates and murders to get herself the throne one young boy Joash is hidden by the priests and his sister and seven years later overthrows this wicked woman. And there is calm, when righteous leaders rule the city. Leadership matters.
