Morning Encouragement for 11/29/2022

Good morning,

For the last few mornings, I have been going through the life of Hezekiah who I believe was a far better king than Solomon. After experiencing the awesome power of prayer and watching his kingdom being spared from Assyria’s onslaught. Hezekiah trusted the Lord and he was not let down. Then he gets sick to the point of death. One would think, that after experiencing the move of G-d’s hand that being told “you are going to die put your affairs in order”, he would have said “The Lord is faithful and knows what He is doing” but he didn’t, he cried and asked for a little more time. So the Lord gave it to him and it would be the hardest and most difficult years of his life; the reason is, he asked for the sundial to go back to the time of Ahaz. Ahaz, as you may remember, was a vial and disrespectful king who bankrupt his kingdom and left it up to Hezekiah to fix.  Hezekiah most likely thought, that he would do things differently and would solve more problems. The thing is, going back in time doesn’t solve problems, it creates them. Hezekiah would be responsible for the onslaught of Babylon because he showed the representatives everything in the nation including the Temple and the royal treasure. I challenge you today and I encourage you to listen to the voice of the Lord and be obedient to what He tells you to do even if it is “Put your house in order”.

Verses: 2 Kings 20, Proverbs 12, Psalms 131, Hebrews 11

Famous Quote: “Our real blessings often appear to us in the shapes of pains, losses, and disappointments; but let us have patience, and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.” – Joseph Addison

Father,

Life is chock full of disappointments, disagreements, and/or frustrations. I would never be able to solve all of the world’s woes even if I was granted 2 full lifetimes. You have called me to be a writing prophet to a war-weary world. Please help me to honor you in all that I do and carry out the mission to the best of my abilities. I pray for my family that you will watch over each of them and cover them with the blood of your dear son. 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).
