2 Kings 20—22
Connect with last Monday and King Hezekiah spreading his case before the Lord. The experience of counting on the Lord gives him the confidence in today’s reading to pour out his soul at this point of facing death. The Lord hears him.
While the good thief next to Jesus turned his life around at the hour of his death, don’t you do the same. A bumper sticker reads, “Those who wait for salvation until the 11th hour may find themselves dead at 10:30!” Familiarity with God throughout life will be a powerful energy sending those extra-needed prayers as arrows from the bow of your heart to the heart of God.
Finally, good King Josiah arrives. Imagine: the People of God discovering the Word of God as buried treasure. It was hidden for generations. Get in touch with the treasure of God’s Word as though for the first time.
