Originally, I wasn’t feeling well. Both my hands and feet were sweating nonstop maybe due to the many things that I have to do for this week. I sneeze every once in a while (hachoo!). You see? I told you! I also have a cold. Then I started to read my Bible, and reading 2 Kings 18-20 made me feel great! Read it for yourself!:D
Oh wow! Today, like what I’ve said earlier, I read about the reign of King Hezekiah. The first words in this writing make it obvious that I was amazed… and I think I forever will be. I can see that God loved him so much that He added 15 years to his life. I just couldn’t imagine how delighted this king had been the moment he learned of that awesome news from the prophet Isaiah! FIFTEEN YEARS MORE? (Yum, yum, yum! 🙂 )
I’m way amazed at how God proved His power when Assyrian King Sennacheerib, through his chief of staff, blasphemed the everliving and ever faithful God. He dared compare God to the gods of other nations. How awful was that? I’m sure that comparison he made right there has been one of the lamest (if not the lamest) comparisons ever made. How could he possibly do that? Comparing the Most High to idols made by human hands… is so ridiculous!
I admire King Hezekiah’s unwavering faith in God despite the accounts presented to him by the Assyrian chief of staff.
An immature Christian would have fallen for that deception.
This part of history only proves that God is God and there is no other. He is faithful to His promises; therefore, we shall never doubt. What other proofs do you want? Follow Him and success will follow you. That’s for sure!
GOD IS GREAT!
