When King Hezekiah came to the throne, he inherited a bad situation. His father, Ahaz, had reigned for 16 years. The Bible says that Ahaz “did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord his God…” (2 Kgs. 15:38).
Because of his wickedness, God allowed other nations to afflict Israel. All of the silver and gold from the temple was taken and given to the king of Assyria. So when Hezekiah rose to lead Israel, the nation was bankrupt financially and morally. In spite of the things his father had done, the Bible tells us that Hezekiah “did that which was right in the sight of the Lord” (2 Kgs. 18:3). As a result, “The Lord was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth” (2 Kgs. 18:7).
Now that’s what God wants from us. He wants us to do what is right. And how do we know what’s right? Well, we read God’s handbook for life, the Bible. In its pages you’ll find answers to life’s most difficult questions. So if you’re facing a tough situation today, do what King Hezekiah did, trust the Lord and do what’s right – be obedient. Read God’s Word and discover how God can turn your troublesome circumstances into blessing.
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
