“Go back and tell Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the temple of the Lord” (2Kg 20:5)
Hezekiah was a good king. God sent the Prophet Isaiah to him with bad news. He will soon die! In desperation, the king turned his face to the wall and prayed. He forgot about everything else and remembered only God. He forgot the Queen, the princes, his money and his throne. He wept and pleaded with God to save him from death. The prophet Isaiah was going home. He was not far from the palace when God, in response to the prayer of Hezekiah, told him to go back. This time he was to bring the good news of healing. Isaiah told the king that on the third day he will go to the temple to worship the Lord! Hezekiah was happy hearing about the healing, but still in doubt. “Will I die or will I live?” -he asked himself. To help the king conquer his doubt, God does a second miracle. Miraculously, the shadow of the temple went back ten steps. The king believed and got healed!
Lessons for us: Going to church is a sign of healing and life! Child of God, please go to church to worship and serve your Savior! Staying at home, especially on Sunday, is a sign of death! God hears the prayers of His children especially when they are in genuine desperate need and they pray with complete faith in God. God sees the tears of His children. God is a compassionate and loving! God is a miracle working God! God is the most generous Person in the Universe. He will give you more than one miracle for His grace is more than sufficient! God will not only heal you but He will bless you in many more ways so that you may know that He is God! He will surround you with miracles, front, back, left and right. You shall experience ‘back to back miracles’! God will make it impossible for you to doubt His power, His goodness and His grace. God loves you! He is the living God, the miracle working God! He is the destiny changer God! His name is Yahweh!
“His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again” (by Annie Flint)
