Fear of God Devotional: An Example of Repentance

What is an example of repentance in Scripture?

Mike Davenport explains in this video that the Bible gives us many pictures of what repentance looks like in a person’s life. We see one such example in the life of Josiah. Following Hezekiah’s death, there was 77 years of wickedness that plagued the entire nations before Josiah took the throne.

At the age of 8, he began to follow the Lord with all of his heart. One of the signs of the following of the Lord was that he began removing all of the idols, altars, and high places. This is one of the signs of repentance. That is what true repentance looks like – turning to the Lord with all of your heart, soul, and might.

Deuteronomy 6:5 (NKJV) – “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”
