Lay It Down

I need to remember this…

God is reminding me again today that this is important.

One of my favorite historical accounts in the Old Testament is when King Hezekiah received a letter telling him that a gigantic Assyrian army was coming to destroy his city, Jerusalem.

Hezekiah had only a very small army.  No contest.

But King Hezekiah had faith in God.   So he took the threatening letter to the  temple and spread it out in front of the LORD.  King Hezekiah knew who held the real power in this world and it wasn’t the Assyrian king with his huge army.

Do I need to tell you how this story ends?  God took care of it and the King of Assyria had to take his much smaller army home without one arrow being shot at Jerusalem.  The next day, the king’s sons murdered him.

This is the kind of thing that happens when you and I lay our concerns down at God’s feet and leave them there.  When we go to him, trust him and let him handle it the way he wants to, he works it all out for our good.

He has promised….

and he always keeps his promises.

Your will be done, Father.
