Hezekiah was now king of Judah. He was another example of a good king. He did what was right in God’s sight. He got rid of the false gods. He destroyed Moses’ brazen serpent which had been raised in the wilderness because it had become an object of worship.
Like those we looked at yesterday Hezekiah trusted the Lord. But unlike them he proved that he trusted God because he clave to the Lord, he did not depart from the Lord, and he kept God’s commandments. And because He did that the Lord prospered in all the things he did.
When we truly trust the Lord it ought to always be evidenced in our lives. When we trust the Lord our lives ought to prove it. Trusting God give us the ability to do what is right because we acknowledge that His way is best and then we can obey Him. We have a had time obeying when we don’t trust.
We might even say it with the great little children’s chorus.
O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E – obedience is the very best way to show that you believe.
