Hezekiah did the right thing! When he received words of threats from those who did not believe there was a true God, he took the letter, went to the Temple of the Lord, spread out the letter, and prayed. He acknowledged that the things said about the kings of Assyria were true, but that God was the only God.
A good lesson here. There are troubles that come, but we can do the same as Hezekiah; take it straight to the Lord, and pray.
Thank You, Lord, that You are always there if I come to You. Thank You for Your help, Your wisdom, and Your strength in my life. I love You. AMEN
Thank You, Lord, that You look down from heaven and see us. You look after us as we put our hope in Your love. Psalm 33
Pray To The Lord
14 When Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it, he went up to the Temple of the Lord. He spread the letter out before the Lord 15 and prayed to the Lord: 16 “Lord All-Powerful, you are the God of Israel, whose throne is between the gold creatures with wings, only you are God of all the kingdoms of the earth. You made the heavens and the earth. 17 Hear, Lord, and listen. Open your eyes, Lord, and see. Listen to all the words Sennacherib has said to insult the living God. 18 “It is true, Lord, that the kings of Assyria have destroyed all these countries and their lands. 19 They have thrown the gods of these nations into the fire, but they were only wood and rock statues that people made. So the kings have destroyed them. 20 Now, Lord our God, save us from the king’s power so that all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you, Lord, are the only God.” (Isaiah 37:14-20 NCV)
