Scripture reading for April 12th: 2nd Kings 16-20
Key Scriptures: 2nd Kings 19:15-16,19 “And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord, “O Lord, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Give ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to insult the living God.” . . .”Now, O Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all kingdoms on earth may know that You alone, O Lord, are God.”
King Hezekiah was desperate! He was surrounded by a large army and they were taunting him, God’s people, and God Himself! He took the letter from the Assyrian King and laid it before the Lord with a humble and faith-filled prayer! God heard, saw, and acted to bring a great miracle of deliverance!
Thankful for a God who hears: Believers can pray with confidence to a God who hears and will act! “And will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night? Will He keep putting them off? I tell you, He will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:7-8)
