When we are confronted with situations like what Hezekiah was facing, the proper response is to turn to the Lord in prayer, seek counsel, and have faith in the Lord. Although Hezekiah had the assurance from Isaiah and the power of the Kingdom of G-d in his grasp, it didn’t make the situation “like a walk in the park”. Some of you like Hezekiah have spent long sleepless nights dealing with situations that are over your head. Doubt, like the armies of Assyria, try to rattle our cage with the power of a pending tornado. My encouragement for you today is, no matter what is going on in your life or how big the mountain looks, “trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your understanding. In everything, acknowledge the Lord and He will direct your pathways” (Proverbs 3:4-5).
Verses: 2 Kings 19, Matthew 17:1-5, Mark 14:32-42, Habakkuk 3:17-19
Famous Quote: “When things get a little hazy and sometimes crazy as they will and you can’t see your way, don’t resist, don’t backup, just open up and give G-d a DEEP PRAISE!! And He will safely lead you on.” – Anita Hewitt.
When life gets tough, as it most certainly will, the world says, “give up” and “surrender” to the gods of the world. We are not told, “I will give you a life without trouble just because you follow me” if that were the case, the cross would not be necessary. So, in these situations, help me to be like King Hezekiah and trust you through the dark times. I know that you use these moments to teach us and build our wall of faith. You referred to faith as a “mustard seed” by itself it is just a spec but once planted it grows into a large tree or bush. Help me to use these situations to plant the seed and water it so that it grows in my life. I pray for my family Lord that you will watch over them today. I pray that you will continue to shake the world and its elected leaders so that they may be silenced before you. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand whom they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land with rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
