Lay it Down

When our burden is heavy, we need to lay it down in front of God – just like Hezekiah did with his letter in 2 Kings.July 10 2014 Lay it down

This letter was filled with very real threats of impending destruction for Hezekiah and his people.

So Hezekiah spread it out before God and talked to God about it.

How wise!  The battle that was coming was way too large for Hezekiah to fight on his own.

He didn’t panic.

He didn’t get all wrapped up in his own worries and anxiety.

He didn’t do any of those things.

He prayed.

And God answered.

That night the angel of the Lord went to the camp of Hezekiah’s enemies and annihilated all of the Assyrian fighting men and officers.

When the Assyrian king realized what had happened, he withdrew in disgrace.  He never touched Jerusalem.

God can and will do the same thing for us.

We just need to lay our burdens down at the feet of our Omnipotent and Loving Father.

Thank you, dear God.
