TOPIC: HEZEKIAH SOUGHT HELP FROM THE LORD (II)

TEXT: 2 KINGS 19:14-28


King Hezekiah, upon receiving the threat letter from the Assyrian king, immediately presented it to the Lord as a demonstration of confidence in what He will do. Note how King Hezekiah dramatically spread the threat letter in the presence of the Lord.


He never denied the power and victories of the Assyrian kings as some would have done today. To acknowledge that Satan has limited but huge powers to influence evil on earth is never a sign of fear or unbelief. Unless you understand the extent of your enemy's power, you may never be able to strategize to win.


God's response to Hezekiah's prayer was the beautiful psalm He gave through Prophet Isaiah which looks like a celebration of victory over King Sennacherib.


God will always have the last word in every encounter. Therefore, don't give up.


QUESTION

Have you prayed and it seems the answer may never come?


PRAYER

Heavenly Father. I am weak and may not be able to stand through to the end. I plead for strenght and courage to hold on to the end, in Jesus name, Amen.
