Story Of Hezekiah

In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the LORD says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.” Isaiah 38:1

Hezekiah was the King of Judah he reigned around 715 BC, he was one of the more favored Kings in Gods eyes because he returned Israel back to worshipping God and eliminated false idols. We know he had strong faith and relationship with God

For example in Isaiah 36-37 Israel was under attack by Assyria, Hezekiah instantly prayed to God to deliver them and God answer by putting to death 185,000 soldiers of Assyria

Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, Remember, LORD, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Isaiah 38:2-3

Hezekiah was a man of faith, when times got tough, including facing death he put his trust in The Lord. How many of us put our full trust in God? If you are facing a crisis today, do you pray to God or just put your trust in yourself?

Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 19:26 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”

Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah: Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. Isaiah 38:4-5

God heard Hezekiahs prayers and saw his faith, there for granted him 15 years of more life. What would have happened if Hezekiah just gave up and never talked to God? Remember Faith without works is dead, we need to show God our faith to activate his miracles.

Our God is the creator of the Heavens and The Earth, he breathed life into us. Nothing is impossible for him. If you need a miracle today, why not call out to the one who can create a miracle in Jesus Name Amen

    I love the whole account of Hezekiah. I especially love when he rolled out the scroll of the Rabshekah before the Lord and asked for help. Yes, when we are in need, we ought to be bringing our petitions to the One who can actually do something about them.

    Hez becomes king and decides to take a tour through the temple one day. The priest is showing him around and giving him the grand tour. “over here we have the brazen alter…and over here is the…” Hez then points and says, “what is that!” They walk over and the priest begins to tell him how wonderful this brazen serpent was. You know, the one that God commanded Moses to create while in the wilderness. The priest went on, “oh this is a marvelous piece, one of our prized possessions which God Himself commanded and ordained.”
    Hez walks over, grabs the brazen serpent, and smashes it on the ground. Hez looks at the priest and tells him, “it’s Nehushtan!” Hez then walks out of the temple. What swag this guy had. The traditions of man have mad the word of God to no affect. Hez understood that and the church of the day could not alter his pursuit of the Father. I wish more of the people of God would have that tenacity today!!
