"And for this cause Hezekiah the king, and the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven." 2Chronicles 32:20
IN JESUS TODAY!
And for this cause they prayed! Do you have a cause for prayer? They cried out to heaven. They needed rescued and who did they call? Our God Almighty who is able! This is righteousness and righteousness exalts a nation. Prayer delivers God's people and exalts them. After Hezekiah and Isaiah prayed crying out to God, God went to work immediately! "And the Lord sent an Angel which cut off all the mighty men of valor, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria, So he returned with shame of face to his own land, And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword." 2Chronicles 32:21
God intervenes in our times of trouble, when we cry out to him he intervenes and rescues us, and he causes our enemies to flee in shame! God saves his people! "Thus the Lord saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennecherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all others, and guided them on every side. 2Chronicles 32:22 God is able to save us from all of our troubles! When we cry out to him he hears our voice just like a mother hears the cries of her newborn baby and runs to hold them in her arms, and comfort them with her love, God hears our cry, runs to us, shields us from harm, comforts us with his love, and delivers us from our troubles and fears. When we cry to heaven it is electrifying to God's ear! It is that one sound that God will never ignore!
Save us God! "Our Fathers trusted in thee: they trusted and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee and were delivered: they trusted in thee and were not confounded! Psalm 22:4,5 God delivers us in our times of need! Praise Jesus for his love and his never ceasing care!
