A. Josiah did what he willed

Deuteronomy 1:43 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“This is what I told you, but you would not listen. Instead, you again rebelled against the Lord’s command and arrogantly went into the hill country to fight.

Isaiah 28:12 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

God has told his people, “Here is a place of rest; let the weary rest here. This is a place of quiet rest.” But they would not listen.

Isaiah 30:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength. But you would have none of it.

Luke 19:14 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

But his people hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, ‘We do not want him to be our king.’

2 Peter 2:10 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority. These people are proud and arrogant, daring even to scoff at supernatural beings without so much as trembling.

1. Listen to GOD and obey for He is our GOD, Lord, Master, and King of kings, Lord of lords not ourselves. We are the servants of the MOST HIGH GOD, that's our rightful place.

B. He's not content to listen to GOD and would like the bad experiences to happen in his life.

1. People who don't listen to GOD will have stiff-neck. Guard our hearts at all times most especially in times of success and failure for that is when the enemy attacks us the most.
