A Mighty Man Replaced

The Lord revealed that He would replace Shebna, a violent man, from being over the house of Jerusalem with another man, whom the Lord would lift up,
“Then it shall be in that day,
That I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah…”
(Isaiah 22:20)
From Isaiah 22:21-25 the Lord explained how He would exalt Eliakim. Let us get the point that the Lord would do it, for He does not want the violent to rule.
Let us be patient, for in time the Lord removes the violent that rulers of peace may prevail.
