The Assyrian king was busy subduing nation after nation when he sent a letter to Hezekiah. The gist of the letter was this; “Hezekiah, don’t think for one minute that your little God is going to save you from me. I will remind you that Assyria has dominated every other nation in this part of the world. None of their gods saved them and your God won’t save you.” So Hezekiah went to prayer.
What can we learn from Hezekiah?
In his time of need, his prayer was immediate, not an afterthought.
He got alone with God.
He was transparent and open with the Lord.
His prayer was humble and respectful.
His prayer showed dependence on God.
His prayer was bold.
His prayer was based on personal faith and trust in God.
What situations are you dealing with today? Are you feeling helpless on your own and you desperately need God to answer? Get alone with God, spread your needs out before Him honestly, humbly and boldly and then allow Him to work in your situation, as you wait for His response.
Have a blessed week.
