Hezekiah

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Do you remember the story of Hezekiah? The Bible says that back in Hezekiah’s time, the Assyrian war machine was flattening countries all around the known world. After the Assyrians had decimated Babylon to the east, they turned their attention to the west and captured the ten tribes of Israel to the north of Jerusalem. So, Hezekiah? Did he run the other way? Take up arms? No, he sequestered himself in God's temple and pleaded in prayer for God to deliver His people. And boy did the Lord answer that prayer! Turns out, the people of Jerusalem never had to lift a sword. The Angel of the Lord leveled the Assyrian army in one night. So, are you in a war? A war against fear, depression? Financial troubles? Be a Hezekiah and keep yourself in prayer. If He crushed the Assyrians, how will He not also crush your enemy!
