I believe there is a foreshadow or principle for us in how Joash (also spelled: Jehoash) became king in 2 Kings 11. He narrowly escaped death, but was hidden away until the time of his appearing. Every one of God’s children is marked with greatness like Joash, but He hides us away until we are mature enough to step into the role we are destined for. Joseph and Jesus Christ were hidden until the set time for them to ascend to the throne. There are many that are still "hid away," but the day will come when the LORD will reveal the anointing upon their lives to the world for His glory.
