In this episode, Ahaz chooses to go to the king of Assyria for help instead of the One True God. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to change our hearts from thinking we know best to submitting to our King Jesus who knows best.
With your kids: What is something your friends get to do that you don’t? Pray that God would help you to trust that He knows what is best for your life.
P.S. I’m still looking for “kid recordings” for the introduction to the podcast, so if you would like to help, send me a message on my contact page.
In this episode, we see how God shows His power and blessing through the reign of Jotham and His compassion and judgment through the reign of Ahaz, and that God is the one who delivers us from all our fears.

In this episode, Finn and I talk about who King Amaziah started listening to, and how God loves to help those of us who are joined to him listen to him instead of those who don’t follow Him.

If you want to help keep getting the word out, it would be so helpful for you to leave a review on iTunes.
On your phone, you can find it by typing the title in the search bar of your podcast app, clicking on the picture, and scrolling down to the bottom to where you can write a review.
Another way is to search for Jesus is Better under podcasts on the iTunes store on your computer and click on it. Then there is a tab you can click to read reviews and write your own review of the show.
(You can also click here to get to the podcast and click “open in iTunes” or “listen on Apple Podcasts” to get there directly.)
Thanks so much for listening and sharing these stories with your children!
In this episode, Finn and I talk about Joash making a good choice to repair the temple, but then turning away from the God who had saved him. Through Jesus, our bodies can now be temples where God’s Spirit lives!
