Though he became king at age 8, much of Josiah’s early life is unknown. But starting in his mid-20s, he restores the temple, renews the covenant with Israel, and finds the law and reads it to the people, leading them to repentance. After many poor examples before him, we find a glimpse in Scripture of how he was able to do such great things: because he sought the Lord and became a godly man (2 Chronicles 34:3). Josiah is a true picture of what God can do through someone who wholeheartedly follows the Lord and is submissive to Him.
