Scriptures: II Kings 18:5-7 5Hezekiah trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before or after his time. 6He remained faithful to the LORD in everything, and he carefully obeyed all the commands the LORD had given Moses. 7So the LORD was with him, and Hezekiah was successful in everything he did. He revolted against the king of Assyria and refused to pay him tribute. (NLT)
Nugget: Putting God first, how many of us say we do this, but our actions show differently? In Hezekiah’s case, he lived, believed, & his actions showed his obedience to God. Hezekiah trusted God & God blessed him beyond measure.
What a reminder to us of God’s presence in our lives; we must trust Him & have the faith to believe that He is with us. There’s no way for us to be truly successful without Him by our sides. Yes, people can achieve success in life, but the success is temporary without God. I definitely wouldn’t want success without God in it!
How is your faithfulness to God demonstrated in your actions, deeds, daily routine, etc.? Do you recognize that God is with you?
