The Lord Be With You Today!
And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord:
(When the King of Judah was threatened by an overwhelming Assyrian force,
he immediately took his need to God in prayer,
a lesson for us when faced with insurmountable situations.
Rather than focusing on the advancing army,
rather than wringing his hands in fear,
rather than worrying about what he should do against this impossible threat,
he immediately prays to the LORD, here the Lord’s Own personal Name,
the One Who has declared through this Name
that He is in covenant with His people,
that He is their God, and that they are His people,
that anything that comes against them comes against Him,
that He will protect and provide for His the ones He has chosen.
How often when faced with difficult situations and people
do we focus on them and their threat
rather than centering in prayer on the One Who goes before us,
the One Who guards all our ways,
the One Who is the LORD of our lives.
Today, as we place our fears, concerns, and difficulties in His Hands,
we allow Him to guide us through the difficulties
and bring us into His triumph.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
