 The Lord was with him; he prospered wherever he went. And he rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him. 2 Kings 18.7

The divine seed was germinating in Hezekiah, son of a king of Judah who dared to close the doors of God’s house and put out the lamps, causing much harm to the people. It doesn’t matter what they did before us. When the Spirit of God moves our heart, the Most High uses us in reforming His house and His people. Whoever obeys the heavenly Father will be preserved and honored by Him!

As soon as he began to rule, Hezekiah showed that he had mastered his heart, for he was not carried away by the fact that he was the ruler of the country, but behaved as a servant of God – without prevaricating against Him. Moreover, he undertook a great reform of faith throughout the kingdom and his people found the way to goodness. This should be done by those elected to any office and heads of families who are converted. Would you do it?

This son of Ahaz had as an example his ancestor of the 13th generation, King David. By making himself like his ancestor, it soon became apparent that the Lord was with him to confirm his action in the blessed Word. Jesus will be with you; just have Him as your model. We show this by the way we act. In the Bible, who is your example? The Savior?

The king strove to act like David and was helped by God. A simple decision will cause you to be used by the Lord or the devil; so always examine yourself in the eternal Mirror, the Word. Your actions demonstrate who your Lord is: Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit (Matthew 12.33). Whom do you serve?

Hezekiah destroyed every kind of idolatrous worship. He was not afraid to break the bronze serpent, built by Moses at God’s command, because it had become a reason for worship by people without deep knowledge of what doesn’t come from the Scriptures and must be condemned. Therefore, being zealous in your actions will only do good to yourself and to others. Seek to present yourself to God as an approved worker (2 Timothy 2:15).

Because he had the Lord’s help, Hezekiah decided to face the Assyrian Empire, which a little later destroyed the Northern Kingdom – Samaria. Everything indicated that the same would be done to Judah. However, the new emperor, replacing Shalmaneser, whose name was Sennacherib, advanced with his force against Judah. In the face of this threat, Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah prayed, and the Assyrian king suffered a resounding defeat (2 Kings 19.35).

The secret of the king of Judah was to conduct himself prudently, for he had the Lord with him. Hezekiah proved how worthwhile it is to believe in the God who never fails or lies. Whoever serves the Almighty can revolt against the enemy, for the Man of War will guide him in battles. There never was and never will be anyone who has been frustrated with God!

In Christ, with love,

God of holy upheavals! When we understand Your will, indignation arises within us against the wrong things around us and in ourselves. The secret is to break with all that - for it is deadly poison!

You made Hezekiah not fear the part of his people that was given to mysticism. He knew that You would not leave him alone, but would guard him from evil. The moment of telling the king of Assyria that he would no longer serve him had come, and the decision was made in You!

The new emperor of that barbarian kingdom attacked with all fury, but who was that king to defy You? You were moving Hezekiah's heart, to show the people that we will fear nothing - except You. Your prudence gave victory!
